Yesterday while I was in Boston covering the Brown triumphant rout, thousands of Christians were marching in front of the UN to stop the Muslim killing of Christians in Egypt.
Ignorance is the trump card that allows this Coptic genocide to continue without world wide up-roar.
Their churches are burned. Their homes terrorized. Their daughters kidnapped and raped by the Muslims of Egypt. Pamela H. was there and has excellent coverage.
The Coptic Christian Community gathered in front of the UN and the Egyptian Consulate for four hours on Tuesday, January 19, 2010. They gathered to protest the genocide of their people; a genocide that continues unabated in Egypt. The world ignores their cries.
There were thousands who filled the streets, too many for the barricades, so eventually the police asked the protesters to walk to 47th street. There was a very peaceful procession. A very impressive protest.
The Christian Copts need our help.
And if not murdered, they are forced to convert to Islam never to see their families again.
It is time for America, for President Obama to demand that President Mubarak end this genocide.
Where is the American press? Where is the UN? Again…Where is our President?
Bowing to the Muslim world and ignoring the cries of these people who are begging to be allowed to live without fear. To worship as Christians without fear.
Our media relishes covering anti-Israel and anti-American rallies and ignores the desperate pleas of the Copts.
This is an outrage.
Listening to the genuine heart-wrenching and desperate pleas of the
Coptics there is no comparison to the studied and practiced anti-Israel and
anti-American rallies that the press seems to love.
Dispassionate and arrogant are the rallies that demand the creation of a ‘peaceful palestine’ but are instead demanding the destruction of Israel. Anti-American to the core. Which is so NOT the case of the Coptic Christians.
