Coptic Christians slaughtered in Egypt as the world looks away

TWELVE Christian were murdered in Egypt. Two hundred and thirty-two people wounded. The death toll will surely rise as victims succumb to their injuries. And that's just in the past few days. In the same time period, more Christians were killed in Egypt at the hands of Muslims than people killed in Syria or in Libya as a result of protests, riots and resistance.

Two churches in Cairo were burned in recent days. Over the past few months church property has being gutted, vandalised and violated with graffiti. Churches have been blown up.
An entire community - the Christian community in the new Egypt - is under attack. And the world remains relatively silent. There has been no significant religious outcry, political redress or diplomatic pressure to stop the attacks. There has been almost no media coverage as Egypt's Muslims systematically, over the past few months, set about massacring Egypt's Christians.
The world is not only standing idly by, it is enabling the massacre. The US naively expects that a new era, begun in new Egypt, will ripple to the rest of the Islamic world. So in the midst of these monstrous mass murders in Egypt, the US has decided to send an extra $US1 billion to help the Egyptians ease the economic crisis that emerged as a result of the ousting of Hosni Mubarak on February 11. Muslims in Egypt are on the warpath - on the religious warpath - and the US is feeding them money.  More from source:  http://www.theaustralian.com.au/news/opinion/coptic-christians-slaughtered-in-egypt-as-the-world-looks-away/story-e6frg6zo-1226056354274
My comments:  Don't make Obama or the media make us turn our eyes and hearts away. Start by contacting your congressman to stop any foreign aid to Egypt until it respects the minorities. Demonstrate in the Egyptian embassy. Pass this around. Pray for the Copts. Boycott Egyptian products and tourism. Send funds to the Copts.  Protest and contact Egyptian offices below:
