Our Forgotten Brothers and Sisters

NBC has an important report on our forgotten brothers and sisters in Egypt

Thousands of Egypt’s Coptic Christians are fleeing to Europe, the United States and elsewhere rather than face mounting discrimination at home. Copts, Egypt’s ancient Christian community, are the country’s largest minority, making up nearly 10 percent of its 85 million people.  But clashes between Christians and Muslims have become more frequent since the ouster of longtime authoritarian ruler Hosni Mubarak in the 2011 uprising – some say due to a breakdown of government security. Many Copts feel Egypt’s Islamist-led government is not doing enough to protect them from religious hate crimes and inflammatory rhetoric – so many are leaving.

The ‘Arab Spring’ is a Christian disaster.  We need to remember the Christians in Muslim countries who are far worse off now than they have been before.  Ever.
