Copts refuse to meet with Sec. Clinton

Catholic World News - July 17, 2012

Coptic Christian leaders refused to meet with US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton during her visit to Egypt, charging that American policy is tilted toward support for Islamic power in that country.

Clinton strongly denied the complaint that Washington favors the Muslim Brotherhood: the political party that has dominated election returns since the “Arab Spring” uprising that ousted the Mubarak regime. She had hoped to meet with representatives of the Christian minority during her stay in Cairo.

    Of course the Copts are correct-the Arab Spring created a vacuum that the Muslims were all to ready to take advantage of - look at Syria, too. The administration also favors a Palestinian state so much that they'd forsake Israel if push came to shove. It just shows how much the people in Washington don't understand the Mid-East, Islam and even Christianity.
