If one member suffers, all suffer together
In yesterday’s sudden eruption of violence scores of churches, Christian-owned businesses and homes came under attack in Egypt.
The violence was a reaction to the government’s crackdown on 2 camps in Cairo, established to call for the reinstatement of President Mohamed Morsi.
Media reports state that 27 church buildings and at least 30 Christian-owned homes were attacked in the violence unleashed by pro-Morsi supporters. The government, however, reported attacks on only 7 churches.
According to the Egyptian Health Ministry, 235 people were killed and more than 1000 injured in the clashes. However, estimates of the casualties vary widely with some reports even stating that the death toll could be around 1000.
Since President Morsi was ousted, extreme Islamists have targeted the country’s Christians, stating that they hold them partly responsible.
Only last week, a 10-year-old Christian girl was shot dead on the way home from her Bible class.
