A website attributed to Al Qaeda has called for bomb attacks on Coptic churches in Holland, on the January 7 Coptic celebration of Christmas.

From the article:
Quote
Jozef Rizkalla, the priest of the Coptic Church in Eindhoven, said “There’s nothing we can do, we can only pray and refer the matter to the police. We will go on with our celebrations."

 :'( :'( :'(
He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.

They certainly seem to desire a religious war. If they decide to target non-mideast Protestants in Europe and the United States,rather than Orthodox or Catholics with a mideast background this could really explode. Let us pray for our Christian brothers and sisters. Lord, have mercy.

Lord of grace, save Your people and bless Your inheritance. :'(

Are private security forces the best way to deal with this? Probably not. Still, it's always good to see Muslims offering to take action in defense of Christians. Hopefully the silent majority will speak up and such noble actions will typify Christian-Muslim relationships in the years to come.
