New Martyrs of Naga Hammadi
« on: February 01, 2010, 08:44:32 PM »
A Palestinian girlfriend of mine sent me this address and asked if we could spread
the word and ask people to watch this horrific video on the killing of the innocents
of Naga Hammadi. It is very gruesome so if you are one who can't stand to see
the aftermath of the killings of the young Coptic men then refrain from clicking.
I wish we had enough political clout in the United States to put economic sanctions
on Egypt for allowing these young men to be killed and doing very little to find
their murderers.

Lord have mercy on the Coptic Orthodox Christians in Egypt.  :'(

Lord have mercy.

Sadly in the US we are not a large, unified organization which would give us a "stronger voice". What other actions can we do to help them (in addition to praying, contacting our senators, and signing petitions)?

Memory Eternal to all of those young people. :'(

Lord have mercy on those Whom You have given the Crown of Life!
Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth
