Egyptian Christian leader on Obama' silence on persecution of Church: 'He did not speak loud for this and shame on him if he is a Christian' (Video)

"Shame on him 'if he is a Christian," indeed. Obama says he is, but his primary concerns seem to focus on the Muslim Brotherhood and how Muslims are treated, in general.

"The spokesman of the White House who…was asked 'What is the red line for the Christians in Egypt?' he mocked and said, 'I didn't bring my red pen," he noted.

From CBNNews.com (hat tip - Robert Spencer):

An Egyptian Christian leader is calling out President Barack Obama and his administration for not doing enough in face of intense persecution against the Church by the Muslim Brotherhood.

Following the recent barrage of church burnings, Father Rafic Greiche, the chief spokesman for the Catholic Church in Egypt, criticized President Obama for not speaking out against the worst violence against Egyptian Christians in nearly 700 years.

"President Obama when he made a speech he just touched on the burning churches instead of telling the Muslim Brotherhood that they are terrorists and they are making terror on Egypt," Greiche said. "He did not speak loud for this and shame on him if he is a Christian that he does not speak out loud."

"The spokesman of the White House who…was asked 'What is the red line for the Christians in Egypt?' he mocked and said, 'I didn't bring my red pen,"he noted.

"So I think it was a mockery and not at its place and really shame on him also," he said.

Radical Islamists, many members of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood, attacked at least 60 churches, Christian businesses, and institutions in the days following the crackdown against supporters of ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

"Obama does not appear to understand the situation," Greiche told AsiaNews. "In his speech he didn't even so much as mention all the churches and Christian buildings being burnt down by the Muslim Brotherhood."

"This must absolutely be made clear: the Muslim Brothers are terrorists and are tied to groups belonging to al Qaeda and to the Salafites," he said. "The history of the Muslim Brotherhood, even since their foundation, has been a history of 85 years of bloodshed."
