‘They Are Burning Us Alive!’ Say Sinai’s Coptic Christians

DM

The recent execution of a Coptic Christian man in the Sinai is a reminder that the peninsula is a hotbed of wanton, jihadi terrorism in dire need of a crackdown. Although the murder of 62-year-old Nabil H. Salama was videotaped in an Islamic State propaganda video — meaning it received some media attention in the West — much lesser known is that the Muslim terrorists have been terrorizing, massacring, and displacing the small Coptic community for years in the Sinai. Early 2017 probably saw the worst atrocities. Then, the Islamic State in Sinai had released a video promising more attacks on the “worshipers of the cross,” a reference to the Copts of Egypt; the terrorists also referred to the Copts as their “favorite prey” and the “infidels who are empowering the West against Muslim nations.”
