Report: Gunmen Massacre Coptic Christians in Egypt, Killing at Least 28:

CAIRO (AP) — Masked militants riding in three SUVs opened fire Friday on a bus packed with Coptic Christians, including many children, south of the Egyptian capital, killing at least 28 and wounding 25, the Interior Ministry said.

No group immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, the fourth to target Christians since December, but it bore the hallmarks of the Islamic State group.

US embassy in Cairo warns its citizens to avoid “identifiable places of worship”

US embassy in Cairo warns its citizens to avoid “identifiable places of worship”:

Grow a spine, US embassy in Cairo. American citizens have no need to avoid mosques in Cairo. No one is going to set off a bomb in any of them. The threat is to churches, and to Egypt’s Christians, and you know that full well, but don’t dare to state it clearly, for fear of being accused of “Islamophobia.”

“US embassy in Cairo warns its citizens to avoid identifiable places of worship,” by Ola Noureldin, Egypt Independent, April 12, 2017:

5 Arrested After Egyptian Police Bust Staged Photo Shoot Of “Wounded Aleppo Children” (Video)

5 Arrested After Egyptian Police Bust Staged Photo Shoot Of “Wounded Aleppo Children”:

Readers who have been following the crisis in Aleppo have seen media reports of videos and photos allegedly originating from innocent children victims, pleading against the advance of the Assad forces. And while there have been various accusations that these clips, like the infamous “chemical attack” YouTube clip from 2013, were staged, such reports were promptly slammed by the mainstream media as “fake news” and roundly ignored. However, if one ever needed a reason to be skeptical of claims, photographs, and/or videos coming out of the region, and the MSM’s appeals to readers emotions based on fabricated facts, Egyptian authorities have just provided it.

Egyptian police arrested five people in Port Said, Egypt for making staged “wounded children” photos, which they were planning to use to misrepresent on social media as photos of destruction and injured people in Syria’s Aleppo, the Egyptian Interior Ministry said on Monday. The group also made fake videos that purport to show the wreckage of air strikes in Aleppo.

Egypt: three days of mourning declared after 25 people killed in Cairo bomb

Egypt: three days of mourning declared after 25 people killed in Cairo bomb

No one has claimed responsibility for attack on cathedral chapel, which used 12 kilos of TNT, according to state media

Egypt has declared three days of mourning on Sunday after a bombing at a chapel adjacent to Egypt’s main Coptic Christian cathedral killed 25 people and wounded another 49.

Egypt’s state-run news agency Mena reported that 12 kilograms of TNT explosives were used in the attack. The majority of those killed were women and children.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack.

In a statement, President Abdel Fatah al-Sisi encouraged Muslims and Coptic Christians to band together “to emerge victorious in the war against terrorism, which is the battle of all Egyptians”. He stressed that the government would be harsh in its response to the attack, one of the deadliest carried out against the religious minority in recent years.

Why Is Egypt Buying Two Orphaned Mistral Class Aircraft Carriers From France?

Why Is Egypt Buying Two Orphaned Mistral Class Aircraft Carriers From France?

*****

H/t reader squodgy:

“I wonder what the game is here?

France was forced by USA to stop delivery of these following Crimea’s 96% Russia allegiance referendum result which basically authorised Russia’s annexation of The Crimea again.

The guts & weapons systems were Russian & have been removed.
So these two elephants are empty hulks which have now been dumped on Egypt at low price.

Egypt now orders loads of Carrier based Kamov 52 Helicopters from Russia….which is coincidentally what the Russians were going to equip them with.

Egypt has no real need for these carriers, the bullshit claims of needing them to combat terrorism is a smokescreen.

Is it too cynical to think something is going on & these just might end up in the hands of the original buyer?”

Egyptologist Robert Bauval the Hidden History of the Sphinx (FULL VIDEO)

FYI.


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KJsX88XIaiQ

12.09.2016

In this provocative new lecture from Egyptologist Robert Bauval he discloses his decades of research to show how the hidden history of the Sphinx and skillfully provides evidence that it is thousands of years older than the conventional Egyptological timeline and was built by a long forgotten pre-Pharaonic civilization. Bauval examines the known history of the Sphinx, contrasting what Egyptologists claim with prominent historical accounts and new research, including updates to Schoch’s geological water weathering research and reanalysis of seismic studies. Building on Bauval’s Orion Correlation Theory, Robert investigates the archaeoastronomical alignments of the monuments of the Giza Plateau and reveal how the pyramids and Sphinx were built to align with the constellations of Orion and Leo. Analyzing the evidence for a significantly older construction phase at Giza and the restoration and recarving of the Sphinx during the Old Kingdom era, he asserts that the Sphinx was first built by an advanced pre-Pharaonic civilization that existed circa 12,000 years ago on the Giza Plateau, contemporaneous with the sophisticated Göbekli Tepe complex.
