Coptic Christians in Egypt are still under attack. At least 25 dead after the bombing of a church in Cairo.

"There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the bombing, but it was celebrated on social media by supporters of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isil)."

Breaking News: Bomb explodes in Egypt by Cairo’s Coptic Cathedral, at least 25 dead

“God bless the person who did this blessed act,” wrote one jihadist on the online messaging network Telegram, while another said: “God is great, God is great, God is great.”
A thought occurred to me. After every Islamic attack against us on our own soil, we have to read about how threatened Muslims feel and how much they dear a backlash. Yet, nobody goes out and kills Muslims. You don't see mosques burned down or blown up killing dozens of people. In fact, about the only country I can think of where mosques get blown up like this is Iraq, where Sunnis and Shi'ites blow up each others' mosques.
