If we in the West get a heavy heart for hearing these news, I can't imagine what it's like for you who have such strong bonds with that region. Lord, have mercy!
May the Lord God remember all of us in His Kingdom always, now and forever and to the ages of ages.

Lord have mercy, am I wrong to be cynical that anything will be done to protect the Copts?  I think one of the problems is that this tends to happen after these folks, who are attacking the Copts get riled up after Friday prayers at the mosques.

That's exactly what happens, people get riled up after Friday services!
