While Egypt Attacks ISIS in Libya, Our WH Can't Even Call the 21 Victims Christians

Hat tip Jihad Watch and The Right Scoop

ISIS Releases Video Murdering 21 Christians

The Egyptian government has announced it is taking revenge out on ISIS for the beheadings of 21 Coptic Christians in Libya. Jordan is taking revenge for the burning alive of their pilot. Meanwhile, the White House puts out a statement that refers to the victims only as "Egyptian citizens" as Obama plays golf in Palm Desert.

Amazing. Stephen Harper of Canada refers to them as Christians. The Egyptian government refers to them as Christians, but not our White House. They don't care about the Christians, and they don't care about the Jews.

We have an administration that is hostile to Israel. They are also not friendly to the new government in Egypt, which did the world a favor by ousting the Muslim Brotherhood. We should be giving full logistical support to the Egyptians, the Jordanians and the Peshmerga Kurds.

Eventually, the world is going to have to confront this evil. If we don't, it will only come to our shores.

Oh wait! It's already here.

Every time I hear that Obama has not correctly portrayed Radical Islamist atrocities and has his minions follow his malfeasant ideological road, I think of what he wrote:
From Audacity of Hope written by Barack Obama, on page 261 in the paperback edition:
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction”
Any questions?

This has been discussed at great length at The American Conservative. The president's job is not to spout whatever rhetoric will titillate our itchy spots, rather it is to conduct effective diplomacy. The fact that Egypt bombed the ISIS camps in Libya probably had more to do with the fact that the dead were Egyptian citizens than with the fact that they were Christians.

Anyway, there is a band of southern Baptist bloggers who insist that they were not Christians, because they had not been born again and lacked a personal relationship with Jesus. (The president of the SBC made much more appropriate remarks.)

Don't get me going on southern baptists. When we lived in Virginia we put our son in a baptist school. It was a disaster.
