Obama: Deaf to the Cry of the Coptic Christians

For those of us paying attention, the malignant mob, known as the Muslim Brotherhood (MB), has had Christians (after Jews) in their crosshairs since their inception in 1928. This is their mission statement and has NEVER changed:

“Allah is our objective; the Quran is our constitution, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations.”

So, their current (and past) persecution of Christians fits their mission. That is not an inclusive or moderate mission. And it leaves NO room for anyone else but Muslims.

Now let me pose a question: When one has a deeply-held religious belief, belongs to a religious group … it would follow that if their brethren in that group are persecuted, that individual would be concerned … and if he had the power to speak or do something on their behalf, he surely would, correct? Then why, since Obama has been in office, has he … as a supposed Christian…been silent on Christian persecution, especially by Muslims, globally? Christians in Africa and the Middle East have been beaten, robbed, tortured and slaughtered by the thousands … yet this supposed Christian has been mum on this brutality of his own brethren.

Since the Muslim Brotherhood came to power … Christian persecution has been on a rapid rise in Egypt (and throughout the Middle East). Raymond Ibrahim, a fellow with the Middle East Forum and the Investigative Project on Terrorism … has reported that crucifixions are being used by the MBs minions for all those who oppose Egyptian President Morsi. Ibrahim said extra brutality is reserved for Christians, but the crucifixions are because of Islamic doctrine, and are required by the Quran.

Now the Coptic Christians of Egypt … who have been there since the 1st century A.D. (about 600 years before Muhammad began preaching and 630 years before he coalesced Islam in the Arabian Peninsula), are giving the Coward-in-Chief one more opportunity to stand up for those in his religious group.

Today, Friday, Aug. 24th, Coptic Christians will organize a protest against the Morsi administration. The Coalition of Coptic Egypt will call for Egypt to remain a civil state and demand the separation of Islamic influences from state institutions.

“There is an attempt by the Brotherhood to take control of state institutions,” stated Fady Youssef (founder and deputy president of the Coalition of Coptic Egypt). Youssef added that Muslims in Egypt currently enjoy privileges which Christians do not … “Christians are oppressed and humiliated.”

So, Mr. Christian (and not Fletcher from Mutiny on the Bounty) … will you speak out for this brutalized minority … who HAPPENS to be your supposed brethren? Come on, Barry … the voters are watching … and even more importantly: He Who sits on the Throne is watching and waiting for your response. This is your litmus test. Are you really a Christian? If so, you will not turn a deaf ear to your brethren … no true brother could.

Are you deaf to their cries? Well, here’s your hearing aid…
