U.S. ignores abuse of Christian women in Egypt

Nadia Ghaly’s cousin disappeared 40 years ago. She was introduced to a Muslim man as a young woman, subsequently vanished and resurfaced later three months pregnant wearing a hijab. She was the victim of a forced marriage.

She is not alone. Coptic Christian women are routinely victimized and forcibly converted by Muslims in Egypt, Miss Ghaly says.

In its annual Religious Freedom Report, released July 30, the U.S. State Department acknowledged the problem, but at the same time appeared to downplay it. The report described forcible conversions as “disputed,” asserting that while there were “occasional claims” of Muslim men forcing Coptic women (and sometimes girls younger than legal age) to convert to Islam, these accounts “often included inflammatory allegations and categorical denials of kidnapping and rape.”

    Its not Obama alone. For decades now, the US has taken the decision to ally itself with Islamists. Whether it is in Bosnia, Kosovo, Libya, Egypt, Sudan or Indonesia, the US can be relied on to side with Islamists/Jihadists/alQaeda.

    I no longer consider America as part of the West but an agent to destroy it. As for American policy towards Europe, America since WWII, has been the main agent for imposing multiculturalism in Europe. America always considered its “melting pot” policy as the main agent of its success. They didn’t realise it was a failure as long as the multicultural mass was small. Now, with the multicultural mass in excess 0f 40%, the failure of the melting pot policy in all social indicators, is becoming evident even to the most blind.

  2. dp you are right about the alliance being decades old, the dems allied with the Moslems when Carter was in the White House, what you are not considering is that the left is out to destroy western civilization just as the Moslems are. The left is using the Moslems and the Moslems are using the left, as was stated in other articles comments is that the Moslems appear to be winning the contest to see who is going to win them or the left.

    Personally I think that when Putin gets tired of the Moslem attacks the left around the world will follow suit.
