The RT documentary about the twenty Egyptian Christians who were slaughtered by ISIS in 2015 is worth revisiting.
The documentary shows how the families handled the situation, as their sons were killed in a most brutal manner.
The story explains much about the traditional Middle Eastern attitudes, much of which we hear little in our very censored media in the West, which tends to demonize Muslims and their cultures.

In early 2015, a small Egyptian village was dealt a cruel blow. ISIS killed 20 men from Al-Ur because they were Christian. Now their families take comfort from their faith as they to come to terms with the loss.
The whole community honours the dead as martyrs, Christian and Muslim neighbours alike mourn their deaths and condemn the killers.
A few survived and are torn between survivor’s guilt and admiration for the courage shown by their fallen friends.
However hard times may be for this village, the community finds solace and pride in how the martyrs’ faith remained strong to the very end. Watch the documentary here.
