Where is President Obama as Egypt's Coptic Christians Die and Churches Burn? Comments

Last week, hundreds of Coptic Christians in Egypt stood up to a mob of 20 thousand Muslims. They risked their lives to protect their church, their religious freedom and each other. As Copts continue to suffer and die and their churches and property are destroyed, Christians have begun to notice President Obama's silence. Continue Reading

    These horrors to Christians always escape any media involvement in the reporting if these horrific events. If the media doesn't report it Obama will not comment.

    Egyptianminority, please pray for Christians being persecuted around the world, for their persecutors and for President Obama. I think your understanding of hatred and humanity is confused, and I do not think you represent the Egyptian minority as your name suggests.

    obama is doing a lot protecting and empowering islamic jihad all over the world, empowering sharia law that violates ALL human rights and the consitution and most basic beliefs of the USA. obama just met a Myanmar leader recently to tell him to have restraint against the muslim jihadist masses and mobs that are attacking and colonising this once beautiful budhist country and its peaceful budista population, now na increasingly islamised hellhole.muslims are killing non-muslims, abusing them, torturing them, cummiting in the name of islam genocide and horrible crimes against them, just because they are infidels. obama is a very weird «christian» that always sides with the christian-bashers and killers, specially if they are muslims...interesting isn't it?

    Any time we look to government for protection, it may come in the form that John received from Herod.

    Edju, I thank you for your interest in my article and for taking the time to make a comment.

    I repeat, President Obama and key members in his administration caused massive unrest in many Muslim countries because they lied about a video made by a Coptic man. Many people, Muslim and Christian, were injured or killed. Relations between Muslims, Christians and Americans have been damaged and the chances for peace undermined.

    And your response is: "Must everything be used as an opportunity for more Obama bashing?"

    I do not know the hearts of President Obama or those in his administration, but their actions appear utterly incompetent and heinous; and they need to be held accountable for their actions in accordance with the law.

    Copts have been persecuted for decades. This is nothing new. And if Obama got involved in all religious disputes, he would have no time for people here in the US. Why does Obama have to get the blame for radical islamists? This is hatred, not humanity. Quit finding a scapegoat for the worlds problems.

    There's no one to blame but Roman-Catholics who 60% have put Obama into office, twice!

    Obama & his people are but to the Egyptian in terms of its Ancient beliefs which in the ancient days enslaved a people physically, today tries to enslave Spiritually & Globally, against this is the prophesied battle of the Lord at Megiddo, spiritually still.

    To answer your question, he's golfing. Or working hard to remove himself from the present scandals that he absolutely knows nothing about. Scary that our president is so uninformed.
