'US Ambassador to Egypt Anne Patterson is reportedly pressuring Christian Copts not to participate in mass demonstrations against the regime of Mohamed Morsy and the Muslim Brotherhood that are due to take place next week in Cairo.
The June 18th edition of Sadi al-Balad reports that lawyer Ramses Naggar, the Coptic Church’s legal counsel, said that during Patterson’s June 17 meeting with Pope Tawadros, she “asked him to urge the Copts not to participate” in the demonstrations against Morsi and the Brotherhood.The Pope politely informed her that his spiritual authority over the Copts does not extend to political matters.Regardless, many Egyptian activists are condemning Patterson for flagrantly behaving like the Muslim Brotherhood’s stooge. Leading opposition activist Shady el-Ghazali Harb said Patterson showed “blatant bias” in favor of Morsi and the Brotherhood, adding that her remarks had earned the U.S. administration “the enmity of the Egyptian people.” Coptic activists like George Ishaq openly told Patterson to “shut up and mind your own business.” And Christian business tycoon Naguib Sawiris—no stranger to Islamist hostility—posted a message on his Twitter account addressed to the ambassador saying “Bless us with your silence.”But Patterson is apparently just carrying out the Obama administration's policy of currying favor with the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist organizations.
In other words, and consistent with Obama administration’s doctrine, when Islamists—including rapists and cannibals—wage jihad on secular leaders, the U.S. supports them; when Christians protest Islamist rulers who are making their lives a living hell, the administration asks them to “know their place” and behave like dhimmis, Islam’s appellation for non-Muslim “infidels” who must live as third class “citizens” and never complain about their inferior status.Shame on America for electing and re-electing this Muslim-loving creep as President. Shame, shame, shame.'
President Obama's treatment of non-Muslim minorities in Muslim lands is a disgrace as is his treatment of Israel but then what did you expect from a man raised (at least partly) as a Muslim? I did warn you before he was elected.
