It's about time. What took so long?
Republican Senators are finally standing up against the jihad against non-Muslims in Egypt and across the world. Note the notoriously pro-jihadist Tennessean neglected to mention that it is only Republican Senators.
Tennessee, Missouri senators want response to attacks on Christians By The Tennessean, October 23, 2013 (thanks to Mark)
JEFFERSON CITY, MO. — U.S. Sen. Roy Blunt wants the State Department to respond to recent attacks on Christians in Egypt.
The Missouri Republican joined Tennessee’s GOP senators, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, in a letter to the State Department. They want the U.S. to urge Egypt’s government to take steps to protect Coptic Christian churches, communities and individuals.
The senators say recent attacks on minority Christians have endangered their ability to worship.
Blunt also has sponsored legislation allowing the appointment of a special envoy to promote religious freedom in a region described as the “Near East and South Central Asia.”
The bill would allot $1 million annually to the new envoy for staff, investigations and travel.
