Over 200 Coptic Christians in Nashville, Tenn. took to the streets Monday in a mass demonstration calling out the Obama administration for its lack of response and begging Americans to “pray for Egypt” while calling for an end to the terrorism inflicted by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Chanting, “Obama, Obama, don’t you care? Christian blood is everywhere,” and “We love Egypt. We love U.S.,” the crowd also shouted “‘eid wahda,’ an Egyptian phrase that translates as “one hand,” meaning that the Egyptian people, both Christians and Muslims, were united with the army against terrorism, which they blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood,” the Associated Press reported, according to The Tennessean.

You can’t blame them for asking if Obama cares.

While Obama kicked up his heels golfing and Sec. of State John Kerry went sailing last week, Muslim Brotherhood supporters in Egypt burned scores of Coptic Christian churches, schools and businesses.

Breaking for a moment from the demonstration, Coptic Christian Sherif Barsoum spoke directly into The Tennessean’s camera and said, in part:

We are hoping you all pray for us in Egypt. Egypt is under siege right now by the Muslim Brotherhood. We hope you pray for a free Egypt, a democratic Egypt and peace in the Middle East.

    RACIST WHITE FOLKS NEED TO GO BACK TO THEIR TRAILERS

    • lovinspoonful

      Really? And what are you – a racist black?

    • SandyLester

      What is racist about praying for our Christan brothers and sisters in Egypt?

    • DC

      and you back to your cardboard box…

    • John

      Look at that….one of Obama’s genuflectors can read and write.

      Really Racist???? That is the only card you got to try to play – Grow up you race-baited, this is not about whites!

  • Sharon ODonnell

    Ok, I’ll quote the story: the crowd also shouted “‘eid wahda,’ an Egyptian phrase that translates as “one hand,” meaning that the Egyptian people, both Christians and Muslims, were united with the army against terrorism, which they blamed on the Muslim Brotherhood,” … First and foremost, the ONE EDICT of the religion of Islam is to “Kill the Infidels”. That would be the non-muslim people. You cannot have it both ways, muslims of Egypt. Either you are following Islam and want to kill the infidels –OR– you renounce Islam. Black & White. Pure & Simple.

      Just wondering if you have ever visited Egypt?

      • DanielTribeofDAN

        It really does not matter if one has visited the region or not. The FACT of the matter is that the prevalent dominant faith of that area is diabolical and demon-istic. Until the light of the world is allowed to shine in that ancient land, murderous venom will be common. If you personally dispute plain facts, you need to do some more home work.

    I notice they borrowed the anti-Israel chant and modified it. Even a moment of uncertainty during that one. Maybe, ‘From the Nile to Red Sea, Egypt’s tyrants made to flee!’. Yeah! that works.

    Well, it’s really quite simple. O’Bolshevik doesn’t care about anybody who doesn’t vote democrat. And since the majority of Christians usually REFUSE to vote democratic, he couldn’t care less if they are shot down in the streets. Remember, O’Bolshevik is ruthless….he cares for only four things…himself, his wife, his spawn, and the continue favorable political winds of the democratic party. Anything else, to him, is cake.

      Jaundiced you forgot to mention that he cares for his constant companion the gay Reggie Love!!! Don’t ever forget that!

      • Jaundiced

        Trust me, if he thought he could get a political contribution for the Dems out of it, he’d throw old “Reg” under a bus without hesitation.

  • AnnaGraceS

    No need to be racist when Christians are being murderd or any other time for that matter!!!
