White House spokesman jokes about Islamic attacks on Christian churches in Egypt
daily caller ^ | Neil Munro

Posted on 08/22/2013 7:01:36 AM PDT by Morgana

The White House’s deputy press secretary today downplayed Muslim attacks on Christians in Egypt, joking about the savagery that has left at least six Christians dead.

Press secretary Josh Earnest was asked by Fox News’ correspondent, Ed Henry, if President Barack Obama has a “red line” beyond which he would act against Muslim attacks on Egyptian Christians.

“Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today,” Earnest joked.

fter making his joke, Earnest said the administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and other marked Christian sites. Many Christians’ shops and homes have also been looted and burned by mobs.

But Earnest didn’t name or criticize the attackers, even though he did charge the military with perpetrating “violence… against peaceful protestors.”

“I’m so not laughing.”

GOD is not laughing either. These Christians are the martyrs of the Great Tribulation.

REVELATION 7
13 Then one of the elders asked me, “These in white robes—who are they, and where did they come from?”

14 I answered, “Sir, you know.”

And he said, “These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Therefore,

“they are before the throne of God
and serve him day and night in his temple;
and he who sits on the throne
will shelter them with his presence.

Christianity will be labeled a Crime Against Humanity within five. The Conversion of Russia will be blamed for the Olympics controversy.

It’s very easy to believe that it wasn’t a mere mis-speak, in light of all the anti-Christian rhetoric being spewed from military “advisors”, academics, etc, and all the anti-Christian lawsuits being pursued. There are just too many “accidental” mis-speakings with this administration, from Hussein on down, to not see a pattern.

The very first one was Hussein’s phrase “my Muslim faith”, which he didn’t even correct himself, Stephanopolous quickly stepped in to correct him by saying “you mean your Christian faith”. It’s been one anti-Christian thing after another ever since.

I don’t believe Hussein is “the” anti-christ (he has neither the brains nor the charisma the real anti-christ will have to attain total power), but I certainly do believe that he’s a little anti-christ and a forerunner showing how easily the “big one” will be accepted, even pleaded with to lead the people.

Tyrant B. Hussein Obama, (aka Barry Soetoro), continues his unopposed efforts to expand Totalitarian Obamanation in Liberty-based America.

Where are the Republican opponents of Tyrant Obama?

Why have the Articles of Impeachment for Tyrant Obama not been issued by US House Speaker Boehner, or Pro-Welfare Republicans Cantor or Ryan?

Have House and Senate Pro-Welfare Republicans formed a cave-in pact with Pro-Welfare Democrats to protect Tyrant Obama?

Obama and friends are so stupid.
They forget that Christian-bashing comments are creating martyrs. Christianity is so huge in the world BECAUSE of the martyrdom of Christ and His Christians.

After making a joke about Muslims assassinating Egyptian Christains, deputy press Secy Josh Earnest said the Obama administration is “outraged… and concerned” about the Muslim attacks on almost 100 churches, monasteries, orphanages and Christian sites, shops and homes that have been looted and burned by Muslim mobs. But Earnest didn’t name or criticize the attackers........even though he did cite the Egyptian military with perpetrating “violence… against peaceful Muslim protestors.”

The Obama admin is in lockstep with his appointees on this.

Arif Alikhan, assistant secretary of Homeland Security for policy development;

Mohammed Elibiary, a member of the Homeland Security Advisory Council;

Rashad Hussain, the U.S. special envoy to the Organization of the Islamic Conference;

Salam al-Marayati, co-founder of the Muslim Public Affairs Council (MPAC);

Imam Mohamed Magid, president of the Islamic Society of North America (ISNA);

Eboo Patel, a member of President Obama’s Advisory Council on Faith-Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

==================================================

A STROLL DOWN MEMORY LANE In 2009, Obama made a self-serving, suck-up speech in Cairo----apologizing for America's historical role in the Middle East. Obama calculatedly set the stage for the Egyptian president's overthrow by the mob.

When the worst-case scenario happened, when Obama's personal choice---Islamist Muslim Brotherhood, Mohamed Morsi, was elected president----Obama sap-happily sent his secretary of state, Hillary Clinton, to Cairo to personally kiss-up to Morsi---(perhaps at that time hatching their plans to destroy Westen civiliation in compliance w/ Muslim Brotherhood dictates?).

Obama added a treacherous ill-advised component to US foreign policy----sucking up to the very people who want to kill Americans and destroy American churches.

Obama was prostrate in obeisance before Muslim leaders---portraying teeming Muslim majorities there as ""victims of Western colonialism and Cold War policies, stupidly promoted democracy among conflicting cultures w/ thousands of years of religious and territorial factionalism.

"The relationship between Islam and the West includes centuries of coexistence and cooperation, but also conflict and religious wars," Obama said in the June 2009 speech in Cairo. "More recently, tension has been fed by colonialism that denied rights and opportunities to many Muslims, and a Cold War in which Muslim-majority countries were too often treated as proxies, without regard to their own aspirations."

Fast froward to 2013: in the past 4-5 days, the savage Muslim Brotherhood torched some 57 Egyptian churches and Christian businesses. Obama ignored the bloodbath and spent the crisis dining out, golfing, power-partying, and vacationing in exclusive Martha’s Vineyard on the taxpayers' dime.

Was Josh the guy from MO who was ashamed of his state because a rodeo clown there mocked the Dictator? He’s a real comedian. A regular Henny Youngman.

This little pencil-necked geek press boy is just partrtoing the attitude and feelings of his employer.

He does not feear any retribution or any censor for this outragous comment.

But the Egyptian people have figured it out, and they are taking down the Muslim Brotherhood as fast as they can and returning things pretty much to where they were before this horrible travesty in their country that was helped and perpetrated by Barack Obama and his administration.

And that would be Africa, Australia and South America, I assume. That's a good thing.

By peaceful protestors, Josh and his boss Zero mean, the murderous muzzie mobs burning the churches.
