Coptophobia

Feb 22nd, 2016 | By

As for targeting Christians, ISIS has made a very public fetish of destroying Christian symbols and sites, uprooting historic communities, and killing Christians as it gained territory in Iraq, Syria and Libya. But the group also did this when it was still publicly a member in good standing of Al-Qaeda (2003-2014). Both groups seem to harbor a particular hatred for the largest single Christian denomination in the Middle East and North Africa, the Coptic Orthodox Church, the “Patriarchate of Alexandria and the See of St. Mark.”

Obama State of the Union Ignores Christian Genocide

Jan 18th, 2016 | By

Obama’s January 12 State of the Union made no mention of rescuing Christians from genocide, a term whose policy implications would have run counter to his advocacy of diminished American global leadership. Americans “can’t try to take over and rebuild every country that falls into crisis…that’s a recipe for quagmire,” he stated, the “lesson of Vietnam…”



Christian Genocide Collides with Georgetown Fantasies

Jan 5th, 2016 | By

Shah’s overly-optimistic appeal for Mideast Christians and Muslims to unite upon the basis of individual human dignity reflects Islamophile sentiments all-too prevalent at Georgetown. Guided in particular by the university’s Saudi-funded Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding (ACMCU), Georgetown faculty and deceptive events regularly dismiss concerns about Islam as “Islamophobia.”
