Jerusalem Post ^ | November 24, 2017 | Seth J. Frantzman

At least 155 people were killed and more than 120 wounded in a bombing and shooting attack against worshipers at a mosque in the northern Sinai after Friday prayers.

Egypt's government has declared three days of mourning in response to the attack that struck the Al-Rawdah mosque in Bir al-Abed west of El-Arish.

The attack was complex and involved bombs and shooting. Reuters reports that witnesses saw terrorists enter the mosque to kill worshipers during Friday prayers, when mosques see the largest attendance. The attack began around noon time. They also attempted to prevent rescue services from reaching the area.

Like Communists, these Islamists keep trying because it’s never really been tried the right way. Or some such nonsense.

ISIS or Muslim brotherhood thugs frustrated by that mosque’s low comtributions to its “ charity fund” ? Or the imam was insufficiently radical?

It’s real tragedy for so many famiies given that so many of the victims were probably men and boys.

Actually, Egypt is a strong ally to the GCC/Jordan coalition that is lined up to hold the line against the ambitions of the Shia Persian Mullahs in Iran.

All the above are American allies as was very strongly demonstrated by the recent red carpet visit of President Trump to Saudi Arabia

Those bombed are also de facto allies of Israel.

You need a refresher course in who is on who’s side

I can see it now. The Imam says: “We must destroy the infidel where he lives, where he eats, where he prays...crap!”

Hopefully the Saudi shakeup will start getting this garbage under control.

The alignment of the nations in the region is along the lines you describe but is it to the benefit of our nation’s peace and prosperity, to “Making America Great Again”, to get involved.

Apparently the problem is your post because a few people here seem to have “misunderstood” it.
