President Obama Ignores Islamic War Against Christian Copts in 2015

by Lewis Loflin

When Islam rolled into Egypt in the 7th Century the country was Christian - today it's Muslim and has the Middle East' largest surviving Christian population of 7-16 million. Always subject to violence and forced to pay extortion money (jizya or head tax) this has gradually destroyed the community - today only the Egyptian military stands between them and annihilation.

The Constitution of Egypt is based mostly on Islam. Article 45 of the Constitution recognizes the three Abrahamic religions Islam, Christianity and Judaism only, but is really a joke. Egypt's large Jewish community (100,000 of about a total of 1 million across the region) was expelled after the creation of Israel in 1948. Christians still have nothing approaching equal rights. Centuries of constant low-level persecution and periods of exploding violence remains a factor of life.

Starting in 1952 under socialist Gamal Abdul Nasser (1954-70) he would be followed by Anwar el-Sadat (1970-81), then Husni Mubarak (1981-2011) would endure 60 years of "secular" rule. When this ended Egypt was looking at a shattered economy and the specter of mass starvation. Outlawed for decades the Muslim Brotherhood would rise to power.

The violent Islamist group Muslim Brotherhood (MB) under Morsi came to power in 2012 after Mubarak was ousted. Empowered by a democratic election supported by the pro-Islamist Obama administration, all hell would explode. Many demanding democratic elections soon found themselves recoiling as terror against Christians, secularists, women, etc. as the MB sought to impost Sharia Law across the country.

Morsi was said to have boasted that he would "achieve the Islamic conquest (fath) of Egypt for the second time, and make all Christians convert to Islam, or else pay the jizya." The jizya is an extortion tax imposed on Christians and Jews.

How could Obama be so blind? Successful lobbying efforts by the Council of American Islamic Relations (CAIR) and other Hamas affiliated groups and his general rejection of Western culture influenced President Obama and other multicultural driven western leaders to ignore reality. (Hamas is another branch of the Muslim Brotherhood.) Obama went to far to declare MB a "secular" organization. The UAE declared CAIR a terror group - now the Obama administration is trying to get them off the UAE terror list.

In 2013 Morsi was overthrown by the military - Egypt received $12 billion in aid from Saudi Arabia and the Gulf states who are enemies of the Muslim Brotherhood. (The Guardian July 12, 2013) The Guardian like much of the Western elite tried to play down Islamic violence at the core of Islam itself. Violent pro-Muslim Brotherhood protests and riots were met with lethal force by the Egyptian military - unlike the Brotherhood attacks on Christians Obama condemned the Egyptian military.

When the Obama Administration led efforts to overthrow Moammar Gaddafi in Libya he opened that country to civil war and more Sharia violence - including the sacking of the US Consulate in Benghazi in 2012 leading to the deaths of four Americans. The Islamic State that has seized large sections of Syria and Iraq is now in Libya where they beheaded 21 Coptic Christians on national TV. The Copts migrated there under Moammar Gaddafi to find work. While Obama did nothing Egypt bombed Islamic State positions in Libya.

Moammar Gaddafi was killed October 2011 but by October 2014 even The Guardian was asking if it would have been better if Moammar Gaddafi had not been overthrown.

In 2015 the region is chaos while President Obama focuses on climate change as our greatest challenge. He is completely unwilling to focus on the intrinsic violence at the core of Islam (which is 80% political ideology) and wallows in the deception of political correctness. Even after Muslim violence in France and Denmark they still attribute Islamic religious violence to poverty and discrimination their answer for everything.
