Egypt Mourns The Victims And The Martyrs Of The Massacre On The Bloody Sunday 9\10\2011

"To sin by silence, when we should protest, makes cowards out of men." Ella Wheeler Wilcox
Thousands of Egyptians -Muslims and Christians- payed their tribute to the victims and martyrs -25 Coptic Christians and 1 Muslim soldier and about 300 seriously injured -of the massacre on the bloody and very sad Sunday 9\10\2011 .
Earlier a march led by the Copts and many Muslims as well to demand an end to the ongoing persecution and discrimination about the destruction of a church building in Aswan Province on September 30 .The demonstration was disrupted by thugs as when the peaceful protesters left the Shubra neighborhood they were attacked by by people throwing stones .After sometime the protesters continued their march and were attacked once more in Bulaq then afterwards when the protesters arrived In Maspero area -where the Official State Television is located- the protesters were met by thugs who attacked them with stones and sticks ; the protesters tried do defend themselves against the attackers when a horrible unprecedented thing happened : eyewitnesses and numerous videos broadcasting on CNN  and other media channels such as Youtube showed live ammunition fired from army soldiers and snipers against the peaceful protesters leaving many dead and injured and then armored vehicles and armored personnel carriers drove into the crowds with unbelievable brutality crushing the stones of many of them on the streets and killing many ruthlessly , also many eyewitnesses spoke about many martyrs bodies were thrown into the river Nile .  During these horrific events the National state television deceived intentionally the Egyptian people by claiming that the  Copts initiated the attack on the armed forces, as well as appealing to citizens to rise up to defend the armed forces against the attacking Copts?!! in an irresponsible act that could have initiated a sectarian civil war in Egypt .Many thugs and fanatics in the streets began to ask the escaping protesters for their religious identity and attacked the christian copts severely .  
 In the wake of what could be the worst act of violence against Egyptian Christians in modern history, leaders of the Coptic Orthodox Church have called for three days of fasting and prayer for divine intervention, along with three days of mourning.Ironically, the military authorities and the government they've appointed denied any responsibility about the heinous crime and are claiming that "an outside conspiracy against the state is behind the events."!! and decided to appoint a commission of inquiry .
 I offer my heartily felt condolences to the families and friends of those who lost their lives in Egypt  and wish a quick recovery to those who were injured. My thoughts are with all those were affected by the savage crime.God bless and protect Egypt and the Egyptian people .."Blessed be Egypt my people" Isaiah 19:25


  1. Please GOD help us to understand the meaning of "Justice".Justice is needed to avoid most of crimes.I pray to GOD to bless the victims'souls and recovery our hearts. Mohamed Awad.

  2. God bless you Mr.Mohamed for your comment .
