U.S. ignores abuse of Christian women in Egypt
The Washington Times ^ | 8/13/2012 | Gracy Howard

Nadia Ghaly’s cousin disappeared 40 years ago. She was introduced to a Muslim man as a young woman, subsequently vanished and resurfaced later three months pregnant wearing a hijab. She was the victim of a forced marriage.

She is not alone. Coptic Christian women are routinely victimized and forcibly converted by Muslims in Egypt, Miss Ghaly says.

In its annual Religious Freedom Report, released July 30, the U.S. State Department acknowledged the problem, but at the same time appeared to downplay it. The report described forcible conversions as "disputed,” asserting that while there were “occasional claims” of Muslim men forcing Coptic women (and sometimes girls younger than legal age) to convert to Islam, these accounts “often included inflammatory allegations and categorical denials of kidnapping and rape.”

Miss Ghaly has no faith in the current U.S. administration. “I feel that politically the United States will look after its own interests,” Miss Ghaly said. “I feel that they favor the Muslim Brotherhood and [Egyptian President Mohammed] Morsi more than the human rights of the Copts.”

Miss Ghaly forgets that there is a fundamental ideological alignment (despotism, oppression of dissent, suppression of Christian thought) between the Muslim brotherhood and the Obama Administration.

In other words, Obama would support their cause even if it wasn't in the interest of the US to do so...

The US overlooks the abuse and genocide of Christians and Jews, men, women, and children, black, white, or other, by muslims everywhere.

What else would you expect from the RELIGION of PEACE and the current occupier of the public housing project in Washington DC. Both are sad cases of humanity.

The only thing the Obama Administration State Department will do is collude with the Islamists to silence or discredit those who expose the persecution of Christians in Muslim countries.

As long as American women are free to munch carpet ,get the benefit of minority promotions in their gubmint jobs , free contraception, and kill their babies they are happy with Obama.

Obama is a Muslim , why is it surprising to some that he does not care about Christians that will die or be tread under foot by Muslims he supports?

I believe the Israeli’s will one day bring this Muslim attempt at world domination to a head. Then we will have to crap or get up off the pot.

WE have never supported christians in the middle east for a very long time. Our masters over there are the Israelis and the Saudis...We even asked Christians to leave Lebanon prior to the civil war, basically to abandon their country so that the muslims can have it. Lets be real here, we have never been the crusaders(for lack of a better word) for christianity that we like to think we have been.

Very true. Even France(Franks) have a better record of actually fighting crusades for centuries against Islam while Americans only paid lip service to Christianity.

This villany by American political prostitutes, selling out on human rights to please Saudi and Gulf State Muslim moneymen began at LEAST as far back as the Bush I administration and includes villians a EVERY political stripe.

Witness Chris Christie giving a talk at a Ramadan Dinner to a group of Mohammadans, Bush II walking pinky in Pinky with the maniac who ran Saudi Arabia, his successor BOWING to the Saudi Maniac in Chief and Hillary’s earlier career working for Mohammaden Maniacs in Palestine.

Egypt at this point has become a Wahhabi Satellite state.
