Obama Admin : Anti-Christian, Anti-Israel, Anti-Hope

Mistaking the Muslim Brotherhood movement-and the support it regrettably received from Egyptian voters-as evidence of democracy in an “Arab Spring,” the Obama administration reacted negatively to the Egyptian military’s overthrow of Mohamed Morsi and banning of the Muslim Brotherhood as a terrorist organization. Few Christians in Egypt doubt that the Muslim Brotherhood is a terrorist organization. And few Christians in the Middle East can now look to the Obama administration for friendship and support. President Obama bowed before Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah. The Saudis burn Bibles and behead those who convert to Christianity. Even so, Saudi Arabia now views the U.S. with distrust because of the Obama administration’s Munich-style accord with the Shi’ite mullahs of Tehran.

History may record that the Obama administration was the most anti-Christian, and anti-Israel administration in U.S. history. Let us hope not. There is time yet to turn around. The Mideast is imploding. States are collapsing and what one Egyptian diplomat called “tribes with flags” are rising up. Perhaps the most hopeful sign from this violence-racked region was the photo of Muslim men ringing a church in Egypt to protect Christian worshipers. This is the way to re-kindle “the sacred fire of liberty.” We appeal to the Obama administration to change course.
