Following the recent massacre of Christians at a church in Egypt by ISIS, the group has promised more attacks on churches and Christians worldwide, calling to ‘let the blood of the Christians flow’ and citing the Koran ‘kill them wherever you find them’:
In the chat forum, militants sounded off about the suicide bombings for which the Islamic State claimed responsibility via its Aamaq news agency. Forty-four people were killed in the attacks, which struck St. Mark’s Cathedral, the main Coptic church in Alexandria, and a church in the Nile Delta city of Tanta.
One user who goes by the name of “The Egyptian Abu Abdullah Almassri” was jubilant. He wrote: “Allah, Allah, our beloved brothers in Egypt, the country we left reluctantly but to which we will return as liberators. You, the mujahedeen of Welayat Sinai, should carry out more suicide attacks. Our brothers who have infiltrated the security forces, strike hard. We, your Egyptian brethren, stand right behind you. Unravel this criminal regime. Allah, bless the Islamic State and its soldiers.”
“Allah bless those who undermined Egypt’s security,” user Abu Ruqaya Alhalabi wrote. “Our beloved brothers in the security forces be tough on the infidels. Let the blood of the Christians who have fought against Allah’s religion flow. Kill them whenever you find them.” (source)
