WH Jokes About Attacks on Christians?

By Matthew Clark1377279544000

The rampant persecution of Christians in Egypt by radical Islamists is devastatingly undeniable – nuns paraded through the streets, churches burned to the ground, Christians being murdered.

Yet, the White House has thus far been nearly silent.  Then yesterday the White House was directly asked about this disturbing situation: “With people being killed, Christians in particular being targeted, churches being destroyed, what’s the President’s red line in Egypt?”

The White House’s official response was “Well, I didn’t bring my red pen out with me today.”

The room was silent – not a chuckle from a single journalist in the White House briefing room – dead silence.

But where is the outrage?  Imagine if the White House had made a joke about violence in our schools?  Yet, Egypt’s Christian children are dying.

Christian persecution is no joke.

Take a stand.  Sign the petition to defend Egypt’s Christians today.

It's a War Against Jihad Not Poverty

By Jay Sekulow1424378951298

Now we know why apocalyptic jihadists rule vast stretches of the Middle East, beheading and burning alive all who oppose them. Because it’s too hard to start a business in Syria. At least that’s the verdict of State Department spokesperson Marie Harf, who declared earlier this week that fighting...

War on ISIS Is Still Ineffectual

By David French1424276789451

As Andrew noted , last night State Department spokesperson Marie Harf declared that we “cannot kill our way out of this war.” Instead, she supports — of course — dealing with “root causes,” like — you know — insufficient young entrepreneurs in the Middle East. Facing intense criticism, she took to...
