Christians march to White House in orange jumpsuits with chilling chant to Obama

A group of Coptic Christians marched to the White House on Tuesday, demanding that President Obama protect Christians from the genocide that is taking place in the Middle East.

“Obama, Obama, did you see? Christian blood in the sea,” they repeated as they marched in D.C.

As U.S. allies push back against ISIS, the Islamist militants take every opportunity to inflict acts of barbarism across Iraq and Syria. Even in retreat, they’ve taken over small villages, kidnapping Christians, and separating the men from woman and children.

No one can be certain of their fate, but if recent history is any indication, the men will be paraded out, tortured and murdered. And the Christian women and children will be sold as sex slaves.

Juliana Taimoorazy, with the Assyrian Philos Project, described the situation for CBN News.

“These women were sobbing, saying, ‘What is our fault? Why is the West silent? Why is the Church not talking about our persecution?” Taimoorazy said.

“And they’re asking, they’re questioning the foreign policy of America and also other world powers and Europe, saying, ‘Why is it that there’s nothing; there’s no agenda.’ There’s really nothing being done to help the persecuted in the Middle East,” she said.

The gruesome situation compelled the group of Egyptian-American Coptics, wearing orange jumpsuits to commemorate ISIS victims, to gather at the White House.

The Copts are hoping to raise awareness of the dire situation in the Middle East, and are demanding that President Obama do more to protect those who are falling prey to a situation that some Middle East experts fear is quickly becoming a Christian Holocaust.
