Editor’s Note – With the threat of open civil war in the offing, its already war on the Christian Community in Egypt. Its not just this week either, its been going on for quite sometime, just ask any Coptic Christian in America.
But now, it is open warfare, and the numbers are staggering – by Islamists in support of Morsi, the Muslim Brotherhood.
Reported list of churches and Christian Institutions attacked in Egypt since Wednesday will astonish you
A wave of devastating violence swept through Egypt Wednesday as the government attempted to disband the supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi from their sit-ins. According to the Associated Press, 638 people have now been confirmed killed, and nearly 4,000 are injured.
The fighting is far from limited to the Islamists and the military, however. Since Wednesday’s violence began, there have also been a wave of attacks on churches and Christian institutions.

Amira Mikhail at Nile Revolt compiled a shocking list with the help of Mai El-Sadany, Amir Beshay, “aggregating information that was shared online about attacks on churches and their institutions around Egypt.”
“Please note that this is a work-in-progress and information so far is unverified although most is backed up with tweets and photos,” she wrote. “We are hoping to continue the efforts to verify details. If you have any corrections or updates to church names, photos, or details, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org or my twitter.”
Though there may be some changes made to the list, what has been assembled so far is staggering.
