Tell Congress: Minorities at Risk in the Middle East
Clearly the Arab Spring is becoming a radical Islamic nightmare for human rights. President Obama and Hilary Clinton are supporting the Muslim Brotherhood in the Middle East, especially in Egypt, and it's putting all the minorities of the Middle East especially the Christians in great danger.

The elected president of Egypt, Mohammed Morsi, is openly a member of Freedom and Justice Party, which is the political arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. In fact, in his speech at his swearing-in ceremony on Friday, June 29, 2012, he promised to try to free the Egyptian-born militant Islamist, Sheik Omar Abdel Rahman, who was convicted of planning to attack other New York City landmarks after the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center.

The Christian minority in the Middle East is facing a growing threat and thousands are being forced to flee their homes as they face harassment and persecution from radial Islamist factions. For many years, the Middle East Christians have been ignored by the outside world. In the first ten days of Ramadan, there have been eight major
attacks on Christians in Egypt that we know about.

On July 24, 2012, Dr. Yassir al-Burhamihas issued new fatwa, published
in the “Voice of the Righteous Salaf,” forbidding Muslim taxi-drivers and bus-drivers from transporting Coptic priests to their churches, which he depicted as "more forbidden than taking someone to a liquor bar."

On Friday July, 27 2012 Muslims set fire to Christian homes in Dahshura village near the Egyptian capital after a fight between a Muslim man and a Christian laundry worker over burnt shirt. The police said in the early morning, after the morning payer, the Muslim man came to the laundry worker's house, caught the worker's brother, Maher
Rizkalla Ghali, put out his eyes, and burned the house. Not only that on July 31 2012, security forces evacuated a priest from church of Saint George in Dahshur, and forced all Coptic Christians in the village to evacuate immediately for their own security, and to release the security forces from all liability and all responsibility for their safety if they did not leave the village within two hours. Copts were torched of their homes and enforced displacement, while not a single action is taken against the Muslim culprits."

A new report from George Washington University professor Michele Clark
and Coptic rights activist Nada Ghaly has argued that thousands of young Coptic Christian girls in Egypt are the victims of kidnapping and forced servitude by Muslims in the North African country. The fact that Christians are under attack by Islamists, especially in Egypt and Syria, where Christian women and children are regularly abducted, molested, and forced to convert; where churches and monasteries are regularly attacked; where blasphemy laws, imprisonment, murders, and calls for jizya (payment to stay Christian) are back.

In the past Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton, has, called religious freedom a "bedrock priority" of the Obama administration's foreign policy." She also said that, the United States was ready towork with Egypt's democratically elected leaders, but reaffirmed that
‘our engagement with those leaders will be based on their commitment
to universal human rights and universal democratic principles.

That’s why we hold president Obama responsible for the erroneous direction of his foreign policy in the Middle East. Millions of powerless Christians will be seen as troublesome and unwelcome infidels, not just by "extremists," but by the government as well, which, as history teaches, can be the first step to genocide.

Because of these recent attacks on Christians in Egypt, We ask Congress and the Senate to:

1- Conduct a full investigation about the approximately 50 million
dollars sent before and after the presidential election to support
Mohammad Morsi, the Egyptian president, a Muslim brotherhood leader.

2- Do more to stop Muslim brotherhood from any progress toward ruling Egypt or other countries in the Middle East in order to protect minorities in these countries.

3- Open American embassies to provide asylum for all persecuted minorities in the Middle East especially the Christians.
