Egypt Bible Society Attacks Detailed

Egypt Bible Society Bookstore Assiut

We've learned more about the attacks against Egyptian churches and Christian institutions by Muslim Brotherhood supporters--especially the torching of Egyptian Bible Society bookstores.

I talked by phone with Egypt Bible Society General Secretary Ramez Atallah who told me they will sell Bibles from their warehouses until they can rebuild their stores. He voiced determination to move forward immediately with store reconstruction.

Atallah also says the Egyptian Army has pledged to protect churches and help provide government compensation for destroyed church property.

He also discusses Pope Tawadros II's reaction to the church destruction.

Watch my update, which includes Atallah's comments:

My heart aches for the Egyptian people whose joy and laughter are silenced by the MB. Germany was conquered by Nazism in exactly this way. Thugs started with burning books and ended with burning bodies. The United States knew about the concentration camps and did nothing just like it is doing nothing now. Once again, we stand on the brink of world war.

To: Sign & Wonders. "Assiut," also spelled, "Asyut" is an ancient city in Upper Egypt located about 200 miles south of Cairo. It has the country's highest concentration of Coptic Christians. The Egyptian Bible Society has a bookstore there.

In the time Obama Administration is trying to convince the whole world that what happen in Egypt is not a revolution rather it's a coup, using allies, and media. Christian organizations are silent.
While liberal Muslims, Christians in Egypt are engaged in war against terror, hatred and real power of darkness lead by Obama Administration, again Christian Organizations worldwide accept prayer request, my brothers and sisters in Lord, while Moses was praying, Joshua carried the sword. Today's major sword is Media, we need a delegate of Christian organizations to travel to Egypt meet with Media Channels, meet with the police and Army men, church leaders.... take all the investigation materials, show the congressmen and other government leaders the reality.
We are fighting alone supported only by Muslim Arab countries (What a shame) namely Saudi Arabia and UAE......
Please wake up and stop hiding this is a pure ware against the major power of darkness, sacrifice a week without TV interview
