How is that Arab Spring working out for you, Mr. President? Well, it's not working out too well for the Christian population in Egypt. I imagine, committed Christian that you are, that just tears your heart out knowing that "fellow Christians" are forced to flee their homeland, thanks to your insistence that Hosni Mubarak step down. Now, the "nonviolent, secular" Muslim Brotherhood is working its way into power.

NGO report: 93,000 Coptic Christians left Egypt since Muslim Brotherhood "Spring"
"Considering the bloody oppression of non-Muslims under Islamic rule, thank Gd these Christians got out alive. Let's work on getting the rest out before that country gets completely swallowed up by Islamic jihad.
Assad Elepty warns us,
'Do not let the head line deceive you. These copts did NOT LEAVE (left) Egypt, they ESCAPED, they FLED, they ABANDONED their home land, they RAN AWAY.....
Where is the outcry from the international community?
Why does the world stand by and watch another GENOCIDE ("driven out or be killed") take place?
Where are the past lessons the world has learned?
Every righteous person has a duty to scream out in his/her capacity,
"We will not remain silent and watch the persecution of the last surviving Christian minority in the Middle East."'
NGO report: 93,000 Copts left Egypt since March Almasry Alyoum.com
'Nearly 93,000 Coptic Christians have left Egypt since 19 March, a report by an Egypt-based Coptic NGO has said.
The number may increase to 250,000 by the end of 2011, according to Naguib Gabriel, the head of the Egyptian Federation of Human Rights, which released the report.
The current trend of Coptic immigration endangers the structure of Egypt's population, Gabriel told Al-Masry Al-Youm on Sunday. He urged the ruling Supreme Council of the Armed Forces (SCAF) and the Egyptian cabinet to work on curbing the phenomenon.
Gabriel based the data stated in the report on information from Coptic churches and communities abroad.
"Nearly 16,000 migrated to California, while 10,000 moved to New Jersey, 8000 to New York, and 8000 to other American states," according to Gabriel. "Around 14,000 left to Australia, 17,000 to Canada, and 20,000 settled in the Netherlands, Italy, England, Austria, Germany and France."
Gabriel attributed the Coptic emigration to hardline Salafi groups seeking to apply Islamic law, deny Copts senior government posts, and reduce incoming tourism. He also blamed attacks on Coptic churches and the government's failure to bring attackers to justice.'"
