Christian Leaders Urge President Obama To Act On Dangers Facing Christians in Mid-East
The Arab spring may now be referred to as a time of death — especially for the Christians in this region.: : Dictators have been replaced with militant Muslims who are increasingly focusing efforts on driving Christians out of the region.
Many Christian leaders, including the: leaders of the ACLJ: like Jay Sekulow,: David Cerullo: and others have spoken of the danger facing Christians. Not a day passes in: Egypt: without Christian homes, businesses and churches burnt to the ground.: Members of the Christian minority are wounded and killed.
As an example, recently in: Egypt, a funeral service was held at St Mark’s Coptic Cathedral for the victims of Muslim violence in the village of Al Khosous.: : As the four coffins were carried from the church, Islamic mobs attacked the mourners throwing rocks, grenades, tear gas and fire bombs, killing two more Christians and wounding dozens.: The mob also attacked the Cathedral compound which includes the headquarters of the Coptic Papacy and residence of the Pope. Police took more than an hour to respond, and when they arrived, they did not stop the attack.
Organizations have called upon the UN and the US to speak up about the danger facing minorities in the Middle East.
