‘I ask the Lord to forgive them’: Stunning interview with widow of man who died in Egypt attacks

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 04/20/17

Details:

Astonishing: a clip from an Egyptian news broadcast in which a Muslim journalist reacts to an interview with the widow of the gatekeeper who prevented a suicide bomber from entering an Alexandria church yard on Palm Sunday, thereby saving countless lives.

As the clearly moved TV anchor notes after: “Egyptian Christians are made of steel! These people have so much forgiveness! This is their faith and religious conviction.”
