Obama Regime’s MB Connected Islamist Advisors Downplay Coptic Suffering

In a recent article at the Daily Beast, Kirstin Powers decried the silence of American Christian churches in the face of overwhelming Christian persecution all across the globe.

Christians in the Middle East and Africa are being slaughtered, tortured, raped, kidnapped, beheaded, and forced to flee the birthplace of Christianity. One would think this horror might be consuming the pulpits and pews of American churches. Not so. The silence has been nearly deafening.

As Egypt’s Copts have battled the worst attacks on the Christian minority since the 14th century, the bad news for Christians in the region keeps coming. On Sunday, Taliban suicide bombers killed at least 85 worshippers at All Saints’ church, which has stood since 1883 in the city of Peshawar, Pakistan. Christians were also the target of Islamic fanatics in the attack on a shopping center in Nairobi, Kenya, this week that killed more than 70 people. The Associated Press reported that the Somali Islamic militant group al-Shabab “confirmed witness accounts that gunmen separated Muslims from other people and let the Muslims go free.” The captives were asked questions about Islam. If they couldn’t answer, they were shot.

Back in August, during the height of the terror campaign against Coptic Christians in Egypt, Powers reported:

The news coming out of Egypt is staggering. USA Today reports that “forty churches have been looted and torched, while 23 others have been attacked and heavily damaged” in one week. According to the Coptic Orthodox and Catholic churches in Egypt, 160 Christian-owned buildings have also been attacked.

The tally of torched Christian churches in Egypt has grown to more than 80.

American Christians are quite able to organize around issues that concern them. Yet religious persecution appears not to have grabbed their attention, despite worldwide media coverage of the atrocities against Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.
It’s no surprise that Jews seem to understand the gravity of the situation the best. In December 2011, Britain’s chief rabbi, Lord Jonathan Sacks, addressed Parliament saying, “I have followed the fate of Christians in the Middle East for years, appalled at what is happening, surprised and distressed … that it is not more widely known.” “It was Martin Luther King who said, ‘In the end, we will remember not the words of our enemies, but the silence of our friends.’ That is why I felt I could not be silent today.”

The Obama administration certainly hasn’t done anything to stop it. In fact, they always seem to come out on the side of the persecutors.

Remember the reports a couple of years ago that alleged Muslim Brotherhood members had infiltrated the White House? (Or were perhaps invited in?)

Remember how horrifying and outlandish it seemed that a US President would actually take counsel from these dangerous, radical Islamists? Well, a couple of them are speaking out on the Christian persecution.

Via Jihad Watch:

Dalia Moghaed [sic], credited with helping President Obama draft his June 2009 Cairo speech about American relations with the Islamic world, recently downplayed attacks against Egypt’s Coptic Christians on a Facebook page.

More than 80 Coptic churches were burned by Brotherhood supporters after the Egyptian military’s crackdown last month on Muslim Brotherhood encampments in Cairo. A local branch of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party appeared to sanction violence in retaliation for the Coptic Church’s backing of the Egyptian military.

Nonetheless, Mogahed pointed the finger at the Egyptian media.

Dalia Mogahed

“The Egyptian media took advantage of the Copts to achieve many personal/political gains, which has angered the West,” Mogahed said in a Sept. 22 post which appeared on the Facebook page of the Egyptian Americans for Democracy and Human Rights (EADHR).

The EADHR was founded by members of the Muslim American Society (MAS), which in turn was founded as an “overt arm” of the Egyptian Brotherhood.

Mogahed isn’t the only American Islamist tied to the Obama administration to slam the Copts on social media.


Then there Mohamed Elibiary, who was one of the speakers at a December 2004 conference in Dallas titled “A Tribute to the Great Islamic Visionary.”

“The visionary in question”, Robert Spencer tells us,  “was none other than the founding father of the Islamic Republic of Iran, the Ayatollah Khomeini.”

When I questioned him about his appearance at such a conference, Elibiary claimed that he hadn’t known what kind of conference it was going to be, although he didn’t explain why he went ahead and appeared there anyway once he found out. Among those who found this explanation wanting was journalist Rod Dreher of the Dallas Morning News, whose skepticism angered Elibiary. The great moderate subsequently threatened Dreher, telling him: “Expect someone to put a banana in your exhaust pipe.”


In a Sept. 15 Twitter post, Mohamed Elibiary, a member of the Department of Homeland Security’s Homeland Security Advisory Council, accused American Coptic activists of fanning hatred of Islam.

“For a decade since 9/11 attack extremist American #Coptic activists have nurtured anti #Islam & anti #Muslim sentiments among AM RT wing,” Elibiary wrote.

In earlier tweets, Elibiary attacked American Copts for protesting against how their relatives in Egypt have been treated by the Islamists.

“Good read by @mwhanna1 on need to reform #Coptic activism in #US including stop promoting #Islamophobia,” Elibiary wrote Sept. 14.

I think I’m going to be sick…

Video: Rick Santorum Produces New Movie – “The Christmas Candle” – In Theaters Nov 22 #CPACSTL


Rick Santorum has been very busy since the 2012 election. Although he could still run in 2016, he’s found another cause to take up his time. At CPAC St. Louis, he told the packed convention hall, “I’m fully engaged, I’m all in.” He was talking about moving the needle on the culture, where conservatives often falter. He said “Republicans tell the American public that we’re right, and we prove it to them with facts & figures.” Dems, on the other hand say they that they care more and can relate more.

Santorum has become CEO of EchoLight Studios, an inspirational and family film company which will release “The Christmas Candle” nationwide Nov. 22.  And he  plans to tour some cities,  along with the film. Susan Boyle will be making her movie debut in the film.

Via the Washington Times:

Based on the book by Max Lucado, the movie is situated in the 19th century English countryside and dwells upon a persistent local legend claiming that an angel comes to call on the local candlemaker every 25 years, and a miracle occurs. The electrical age, however looms. Faith issues and a satisfying ending follow. British singer Susan Boyle is included in the unusual ensemble cast.

“Surprisingly, a Christmas movie releasing for the holidays is a unique event, as there have been very few in recent years,” Mr. Santorum says.

Indeed, he asked the CPAC audience, “name the last time you saw a Christmas movie and saw what Christmas is all about?”
Here’s a preview of “The Christmas Candle.”

Today CPAC is holding a conference in St. Louis featuring Republican luminaries such as Dan Loesch, Grover Norquist, Ks Governor Sam Brownback, Lt. Col. Oliver North, Gov. Rick Perry, Townhall columnist, Guy Benson, and Senator Mike Lee.

Mike Lee gave his inspirational speech at 9:00 sharp, and then went into the hall to sign autographs, pose for pictures, and do interviews.


“We must, as citizens of this great republic, assert our right to live in a land that’s free from an oppressive, distant, national government,” Lee declared in his speech.

Saturday Movie Matinee: Obama Lashes Out At “Extremist” Repubs – Neil Cavuto Strikes Back

Via White House Dossier: Obama Lashes Out at “Extremists””

Well, President Obama landed in the briefing room today to talk about the possibility of a shutdown or a default, neither of which he seems to like. And the Republicans who might upend the apple cart are “extremists”:

The American people have worked too hard to recover from a bunch of crises – several of them now over the last couple of years inflicted by some of the same folks in Congress that we’re talking about now – to see extremists in Congress cause another crisis.

And their colleagues in the House caucus are “appeasers”:

The House Republicans are so concerned with appeasing the tea party that they’ve threatened a government shutdown or worse unless I gut or repeal the Affordable Care Act.

They’re engaged in “shenanigans,” pushing a “hobbyhorse.” They want to “burn the house down simply because you haven’t gotten 100 percent of your way.” The contempt is palpable.

“That’s not how our constitutional system is designed!” Obama declared, making me wonder if he’s smoking out GOP subversion of the Constitution in order to justify taking unconstitutional measures himself.

Well, IT IS how our constitutional system is designed. Congress gets to spend. But the Constitution doesn’t say Congress has to spend.

You are by no means required to watch this in its entirety.

Your palette cleanser via Biz Pac Review: Cavuto blasts Obama: ‘We at Fox News are not the problem — you are’:

Obama blamed Fox News for the Affordable Care Act’s unpopularity Thursday in a speech he delivered at Prince George’s Community College. Cavuto wasn’t about to let this go unanswered.

“Mr. President, we at Fox News are not the problem,” he said. “I hate to break it to you, sir. You are. Your words are. Your promises are. We didn’t sell this healthcare law. Sir, you did. Remember this?”

He then listed a long litany of promises Obama made to sell his signature healthcare law to a gullible public — every one of them broken.

Sen. Ted Cruz with Greta Van Susteren on the Senate Vote and What Comes Next to Defund Obamacare:


GVS: 25 Republicans crossed over and voted with the democrats and you say it’s not over. Where does it go from here?
TC: To the House of Representatives. Last week the house stood strong. They passed a strong bill that defunded Obamacare. They listened to the people. I’m hopeful and optimistic they’ll sign a strong bill and send it back to the Senate and I hope this time back in the Senate that Senate Republicans come together and stand shoulder to shoulder with house Republicans to actually fix this disaster of a law.
GVS: What makes you think that would happen? Because if it goes — it is going back to the house an say the house puts back in the defunding of Obamacare, the same bill and ships it back across to the Senate, why would you expect the Senate to vote any different this time around?
TC: I don’t know if they’ll put in the same language or something else. What I think is critical is that they act to stop the harmful consequences that millions of Americans are feeling because of Obamacare. One of the things we tried to focus on this week is all of the millions of American who is are struggling to find jobs because of Obamacare, facing the threat of being forcibly forced into premiums and seeing the health care threatened to be taken away because of Obamacare and I think it’s critical in the house step up and stop that damage, stand for the American people and if they do that, I hope the second time around is an opportunity for Senate Republicans to come home and stand united and I hope that’s what we do.
GVS: I guess I’m a little bit — I’m — I don’t think that’s likely to happen in the Senate. You know the Senate better than I do. I don’t think the vote is likely to change. Would you be satisfied if the house bill that came back to the Senate was one that delayed Obamacare for one year? Didn’t defund it but declared it for a year. Is that something to stand behind?
TC: I don’t think to dictate terms to the House of Representatives. They’re 435 members. Each is elected in their district and has to be accountable.
GVS: Is that something that you consider it something that would be effective in your strategy if you could put it off for one year?
TC: For me, what I have said is that I will not vote for any continuing resolution that funds Obamacare because I think Obamacare is a disaster, a train wreck, a nightmare. You know? I’ll note the last two terms, train wreck is what the lead author of Obamacare called it and nightmare is what James Hoffa President of the teamsters called it. I hope that the house continues to do what they do. I want to salute Speaker Boehner and leader cantor and house leadership for joining arm in arm, bringing together the Republicans in the house, to listen to the American people. That’s what they did last time and I hope and believe they’ll continue to do that.

Former United Nations ambassador John Bolton told Fox News Friday that the U.N. Security Council resolution demanding Syria eliminate its chemical weapons arsenal was nothing but a continuation of the Russian-brokered agreement from last week, calling it another victory for the Assad regime and its Russian allies.The Security Council voted unanimously in its decision, warning of consequences but not authorizing the automatic use of force if Syria was found to be in violation, as previously sought by the Obama administration.
