Stand with Egypt’s Christians

Concerned Women for America (CWA) calls on President Obama to ensure religious liberty in Egypt and to protect that nation’s Christian minority.  I worry, as do many others, that in the chaos of the “Egyptian Moment,” an ugly force of intolerance will hijack events and install a regime against which the Mubarak government may pale in comparison.  Even under Hosni Mubarak, Christians in Egypt were targets of barbarism, persecution and savagery.  How much worse will even that be under a Muslim Brotherhood-style ayatollah regime if that should take root?  Right now in Iran, Christians are routinely rounded up, arrested and abused in the worst ways.  It is up to President Obama and his Secretary of State Clinton to ensure that the same fate does not befall Egypt.  We call on the Administration to defend all segments of Egyptian society, but especially to ensure that we do not abandon Egypt’s Christians.
