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.
