(Worthy News) - An Egyptian military court on Thursday sentenced 17 Islamic militants to death for involvement in deadly attacks on Christians, a rights lawyer said.

The court in the Mediterranean city of Alexandria also issued life sentences to 19 defendants and sentenced another nine to 15 years in prison on terror-related charges, lawyer Khaled el-Masry said. Another defendant got a 10-year term, he said.

Military prosecutors had accused the defendants of belonging to the Islamic State group and plotting attacks against Christian churches and security forces, el-Masry said. The verdict, which came after an approval from Egypt's top religious authority, the Grand Mufi, can be appealed. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]

  1. On the one hand I’m glad to see that violence against Christians isn’t always treated with a blind eye. On the other hand, I’m horrified beyond words to think of what it will be like for an unconverted Muslim to stand in front of a Holy God, with fire in His eyes, and explain to Him why you hurt His kids.

    We need to pray that these people give their hearts to Jesus before their time is up.

  2. They will just become martyrs in the eyes of the Muslims. They need to get their heart right with God as brother Paul did. A road to Damascus experience.
