Massacre of Christians in Egypt

NCRI - The world’s conscience is offended by the shocking news of the deadly explosions in the churches of two Egyptian cities of Tanta and Alexandria and killing of dozens of innocent people.

The Foreign Affairs Committee of the National Council of Resistance of Iran, strongly condemns these anti-human killings. While expressing condolences to the people and government of Egypt, It wishes speedy recovery for the injured, the committee calls for that the perpetrators of this horrible crime against humanity to be brought to justice.

These crimes in addition to Europe, have expanded to vast areas of the world.

Rather it is in obvious contradiction of teachings of this great religion. Yet, the way to get out of this cycle of crime and massacre could be achieved solely by focusing on its primary source, i.e. the anti-human regime ruling Iran
