Dozens of churches and Christian institutions in Egypt have reportedly been burned or attacked by Islamists with relatively little coverage from the mainstream media. One person described the attacks as a “literal pogrom.”
The terrifying thing is is that churches are encircled by mobs the way el Fat7 mosque is now with zero security, zero media coverage.
