Brothers and sisters in Christ face terror attacks and severe persecution by Muslims in Egypt and other countries like Nigeria (sleeping students massacred-some burned alive, others shot as they fled). The Obama administration appeases Muslims and supports the Muslim Brotherhood as shown in their support for Morsi in Egypt and not one breath on Christian persecution. Contact your elected representative and lift your voice and actions to shout the alarm. And Pray for the Copts and other Christians in foreign lands......and support them with money and deed.

Suspected Islamic gunmen have killed at least 29 students and a teacher at a Nigerian boarding school, setting buildings on fire and then shooting pupils as they tried to escape.
Survivors said some of the students were burned alive Saturday in the pre-dawn attack in Mamudo village in restive northeast Nigeria. One student said he was awakened at gunpoint, and suffered a gunshot wound that blew off four fingers of his right hand, his writing hand. Dozens more students fled into the bush, their fate unknown.
The school is in a region where Nigerian President Goodluck Jonathan has declared a state of emergency and sent in troops to try to thwart militants fighting to create a breakaway Islamic state.
But one father who lost two sons in the attack said the region is not safe. He said gunmen are attacking schools and "there is no protection for students despite all the soldiers."
Authorities believe the attack was carried out by Boko Haram, an Islamist insurgent group whose name translates to "Western education is sacrilege."
