Egyptian Coptic Christians intimidated from voting

The Obama Regime, with the assistance of the National Republican Party, supported the toppling of the Mubarak regime in Egypt. This paved the way for the Muslim Brotherhood to take over that nation. Since then it has been open season on the Coptic Christians. Islamists are  intimidating Christians and preventing them from voting on the new Constitution.

ASSIUT, Egypt – A campaign of intimidation by Islamists left most Christians in this southern Egyptian province too afraid to participate in last week’s referendum on an Islamist-drafted constitution they deeply oppose, residents say. The disenfranchisement is hiking Christians’ worries over their future under empowered Muslim conservatives.

Around a week before the vote, some 50,000 Islamists marched through the provincial capital, Assiut, chanting that Egypt will be “Islamic, Islamic, despite the Christians.” At their head rode several bearded men on horseback with swords in scabbards on their hips, evoking images of early Muslims conquering Christian Egypt in the 7th Century.

They made sure to go through mainly Christian districts of the city, where residents, fearing attacks, shuttered down their stores and stayed in their homes, witnesses said.

This is exactly what happened to Jews in Nazi Germany. It started with an intimidation campaign then ended in genocide. No one is saying anything about the persecution of the Copts. The Obama Regime likes what is occurring to the Copts. The National Republican Party, which claims to support “Christian values”, is silent once again on real persecution of Christians.

Whatever happened to NEVER AGAIN?

    The Muslims are just doing what Muslims always do; killing off all the infadels. Muslim ethic cleansing is nothing new. Short of going to war there really is nothing the West can realistically do to help the Egyptian Coptic Christians.

    I don’t need Egypt if they can’t be religiously tolerant.

    There is no reason to give a muslim country the time of day if they still want to live in the 7th century.
