Coptic Leader Speaks Out on Current State of Christians in Egypt

An interview with Yohanna Qult, the Deputy Patriarch pg the Coptic Orthodox Church, was published in Catholic.org the link is blewow:


The Priest described the climate that Christians in the Middle East face very clearly - he also noted that the West has essentially done next to nothing to help those who adhere to the Christian faith in that region. Muslims who submit that they have an axe to grind against the West for acting as modern day "Crusaders" apply that label to Western forces in a derogatory manner and insist that this, and the support given to the State of Israel, are their sole reasons for attacking the West.

The facts do not support their position - When the West takes any action in a predominantly Muslim nation or even sends forces for a brief period of time, the Christians always have it worse once the military leaves. Christian in Iraq are attacked regularly and cannot either walk the streets, have Christmas services, or even keep their business open or remain in their homes without the constant threat of bombings, kidnappings, rapes, etc. Lebanese Christians have been on the ropes since we quietly walked away in the 80s. Egypt, Libya, and Tunisia are also very dangerous places if one is a Christian. The Arab Spring has opened a Pandora's box of anti-Christian and Jewish hatred. Christians are suffering terribly from those who follow the religion of tolerance.

If these Muslims would be even slightly honest, they would certainly welcome the US to invade/occupy or otherwise use our military or political influence to remove their current leaders in every nation in the Middle East  as our presence in every country  is inevitably followed by the utter destruction of the respective Christian communities.
