While the Left glories in the “Demubarakization of Egypt,” the Obama administration continues in silence on the atrocities being committed against the Coptic Christians who are the indigenous people of Egypt. Copts in southern Egypt are protesting the murder of a priest by Islamists shouting “Allahu Akbar.” The Egyptian military is busying itself in attacking monasteries by knocking down walls and launching RGB attacks.
Now, the Muslim Governor of Minya, has ordered a community center for handicapped children to be demolished unless protection money is paid, and ten new homes built by Copts are to be torn down unless a mosque is built, though no Muslims live there. The Obama administration’s policies regarding Israel/Gaza and Egypt/Copts appears to be exactly backward.
From the beginning of his administration, Barack Obama has continually coddled the pro-Islam worldview in regard to the Middle East. Though in recent days, it appears there may be a backing away from his position on Israel, Obama has long been obsessed with Israeli construction of homes, an effective denial of the fact that Jews are actually the indigenous population of Israel. So, too, the Copts are the indigenous population of Egypt, but as Islamists threaten to demolish their homes and a center for handicapped children, there is only silence from the Obama Administration.
The 5-story community center, which cost four million Egyptian pounds, belongs to the Coptic diocese of Mallawi and serves children and youth with special needs from 75 villages all over Minya governorate. It has a workshop to teach them a suitable vocation, as well as a free day clinic.
The Governor wanted to demolish the services building in January 2011, but could not because of the Coptic anger and demonstrations all over Egypt after the massacre of the Two Saints Church in Alexandria on New Year’s Eve, where a bomb killed 25 Copts and injured nearly 100.
‘Those children and youth, some of them cannot talk or do anything for themselves,’ said to one demonstrator, ‘so why deprive them of the place which can help them. It is utterly inhuman. This building was inaugurated by the governor himself four years ago and all licenses and papers are fully correct. Suddenly he wants to demolish it.” [...]
