Egyptian CHRISTIANS have cancelled Easter celebrations fearing ISIS will launch a terror attack

Elaborate traditional celebrations for the holy weekend in Egypt have been stripped back over security fears, after at least 45 people were killed in Palm Sunday attacks on a Catheral in Alexandria and a church in Tanta on April 9.
Safety is not guaranteed in spite of all the extra security measurements, people are worried someone could sneak into a church and leave a bomb. However, I was in Church last night and we had lots of extra security placed there by the security department in our neighbourhood.     
Coptic Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Egypt’s 90 million people, have long complained of discrimination under successive Egyptian leaders.    
A second aspect to consider is that much of the population is either illiterate or very poorly educated. They will blindly follow teaching of those who uphold the conception that Christians are infidels.”    
It comes as Egypt’s interior ministry on Thursday identified the suicide bomber in the church bombing in the city of Tanta as Mamdouh Amin Mohamed Baghdadi, a resident of Qena, south of Cairo.A ministry statement said Baghdadi was born in 1977 and was one of 19 suspected militants believed to belong to a cell behind a December suicide bombing of Cairo’s main Coptic cathedral, another attack claimed by ISIS.
