According to Fox News, #ISIS is claiming responsibility for the attack on a busload of children on Friday. This comes just in time for the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan. The terror groups reported that "its soldiers" stopped the bus as it was heading for a monastery in Cairo. As the bus stopped, the terrorists boarded the bus and ordered members off the bus. The terrorist then ordered the group to recite a Muslim prayer.

When they refused, the terrorists then opened fire and killed 32 people. The terrorists then saw cars coming and left after giving the rest of the people flyers, promoting their ideology. The Egyptian authorities said the 13 who survived the attack are recovering in the hospital in Minya where the attack took place.

The 13 are doing fine, but feel shaken by the attack.

The fourth attack on Christians since December

According to Fox, this attack marks the fourth on Christians since the close of last year. President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi has told reporters that he ordered air strikes on the terror group. Sissi told the Coptic Pope that he will not rest easy until justice is served. Attacks, such as the Easter attack on the churches in North Cairo, called for a three-month "state of emergency."

On Friday, #President Trump and the world condemned the attack. Trump made the statement that America wished to crush “evil organizations of terror.” Trump also condemned terrorists who "engaged in a war against civilization" and decried the "merciless slaughter of Christians in Egypt." President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi to Trump: "I direct my appeal to President Trump: I trust you, your word and your ability to make fighting global terror your primary task."

Terror must never become 'the new normal'

In an article published by Fox, after the attack in Manchester, they stated: "It is not a normal thing for a suicide bomber to attend an Ariana Grande concert." So this must not be labeled the "new normal." There is nothing normal about a grown man killing a venue full of children.

Terror must be fought with every tool we have. We must keep fighting until we have exhausted all avenues.

These people will not stop until they are dead or have converted us all to their twisted ideology. If we give in, then we are no better than them. Let's not stoop to their level and resort to ignorance. We must trust our military and government to put an end to this senseless murdering. I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below. #Coptic Christian
