Terror Shocks - A Massacre in the Egyptian Sinai, November 24, 2017

News reports on this November 25, 2017, confirm a shocking terror event, in the town of Bir al-Abed, on the Sinai peninsula, Egypt, on Friday, November 24. 

During Friday prayers at the Al-Rawda Mosque, explosions, supposedly within a building adjacent to the mosque, were set off sending fleeing worshippers out of the doors where they were machine-gunned massacred by some 30-plus assailants laying in waiting, who blocked access to the mosque by setting parked cars on fire. Thus far, 305 people, including 30 children, have been reportedly killed. Another 100 have been wounded. 

A shocking, barbaric and utterly violent crime against humanity. That this crime was executed with such precision and with such cold apathy, therefore begs any reasoning as to how any branch of humankind could conduct inflict such a deadly act upon non-suspecting innocents in a place of worship.

No group has yet claimed responsibility for the terror. Media reports indicate some attackers had the flag of the Islamic State(IS) terror group. Whomever is guilty, this Sinai attack represents a high-crime against humanity. 

We mourn with the Egyptian people. And it becomes even more sufficient now that an examination of the root causes of terror are explored and that all efforts be made toward the eradication of terror.
