Days after ISIS warned Muslims in Egypt to “stay away from Christian gatherings,” the terror group has shot dead a Christian man inside a barber shop.
50-year-old Nabil Saber Ayoub was killed Saturday evening in the coastal city of el-Arish.
A former Obama official says Ayoub and other Egyptian Christians deserve the persecution they are suffering from ISIS.
Mohamed Elibiary was a former Homeland Security Advisory Council member under the Obama administration.
In a tweet over the weekend, Elibiary said that because many Egyptian Coptic Christians supported the removal of the Muslim Brotherhood’s leader in 2013, they should view their plight as retribution for their actions.
“What goes around comes around,” Elibiary tweeted on May 7th. “Coptic ldrs did same to MB Egyptians.”
Reading ISIS’s latest mag “otherizing” Egypt’s Copts. Subhanallah how what goes around comes around. Coptic ldrs did same to MB Egyptians. 🤔

According to the Daily Caller, Elibiary even praised ISIS for killing Christians, tweeting “Subhanallah” which is the Arabic word for “Glory to Allah.”
