Is Libya Now a Terrorist Stronghold?

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

SIRTE (Worthy News)-- Early Saturday morning, masked militants kidnapped about 13 Egyptian Christians from a housing complex in Sirte, Libya, according to International Christian Concern.

At 2:30 a.m., the militants went room to room checking ID cards and taking only Christian Egyptians while leaving Muslims unmolested.

This latest abduction comes five days after seven Coptic Christians were kidnapped as they were trying to return to Egypt from the very same housing complex that was raided Saturday.

Both abductions followed the recent murder of Magdy Sobhy Tawfiq, an Egyptian doctor, Sahar, his pharmacist wife and their 13-year-old daughter, Catherine, also in Sirte.

"Christians in Libya are in extreme danger from Islamic extremists who have shown they are actively hunting them down," said Todd Daniels, ICC Regional Manager for the Middle East. "We mourn together with the families affected by these actions, urge the government to quickly act to protect Christians, and pray for the safe return of those who have been kidnapped today in Libya."

  1. The apathy from our Western leaders is appalling. The liberal world doesn't care because they prefer the myth of peaceful islam over the reality of what is happening.
