The Muslim Brotherhood attacks on Christians have been brutal. Egypt has had a total of almost 100 churches burnt since August that we know about, some of which are hundreds of years old. There have been threats on families, kidnappings that have ended in murder for people not being able to afford the stiff Jizyra (penalty tax against non-Muslims) that they attempt to impose, and violence on a daily basis.

During the afternoon press conference on Tuesday, November 14, the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, if the President had a new “red line” over the attacks on Christians by the Muslim Brotherhood. Fox News correspondent Ed Henry was quite serious when calling an end to the violence by the President.
The answer stunned the crowd.

Soon after making the remark he stated that the White House was “outraged and shocked” over the attacks and violence. It is noted, however, that the attackers were never called out. He never names the attackers, and he neglects to criticize their attacks instead blaming the military saying they are, “portraying violence against the peaceful protesters” Peaceful protesters, with all the death, businesses destroyed, bombings, and church burnings?
It got even better in that he stated it is because they don’t put the Muslim Brotherhood back in charge!

“We have been concerned and condemned the violence that has been perpetrated by the government against peaceful protesters, and we’re just as outraged and just as concerned about reports that Christian churches have been targeted,” he said.
During the last year, Obama backed the brotherhood-backed elected prime minister, and is now considering whether to strongly push for its return to power.~the DC
