ICC Note: The families of those who were killed in
Libya by ISIS terrorists continue to grieve, but they
also are encouraged by the boldness their loved
ones showed. “We thank God that he kept the faith,”
the mother of Milad said.
03/18/2015 Egypt (Gospel Herald ) The mother of
Egyptian Christian Milad Makeen Zaky expressed
no regrets about their faith. Her son was one of the
21 Egyptians beheaded by the terror group known
as ISIS on a beach in Libya.
In a video posted by International Christian Concern
on Facebook Tuesday, Zaky’s mother was grateful
that her son stayed true to the faith until ISIS
executed him on the beach. The overall video,
which had English subtitles, lasted under 30
“I thank God that my son kept the faith and died for
the cross because he was the son of Christ from his
birth, not my son,” she said. “From his childhood, he
was going to Sunday school, reading the holy Bible,
attending the prayer meetings in the church
Zaky’s mother added that her son had to leave their
home in Egypt to find work abroad. He ended up
working in Libya.
“He had to leave us and travel abroad to seek a
living because he couldn’t find good work here,”
she said. “But we thank God that he kept the faith.”
It’s safe to say that many Egyptian Christians like
Zaky’s mother still maintain their faith and remain
unbroken in the midst of the instability caused by
ISIS. However, other Egyptians have decided to take
down the terror group by resorting to punchlines
and parody, according to Leila Fadel of NPR.
