On Monday, in Nashville, Tennessee, more than 200 Coptic Christians protested the Obama administration’s indifference to the plight of Coptic Christians in Egypt while Coptic Christian churches, schools and businesses have been burned and Christians killed. They chanted, “Obama, Obama, don’t you care? Christian blood is everywhere!”, “We love Egypt. We love U.S.” and “Eid wahda”, which means “one hand” and implies that Egyptian Christians and Muslims both decry the terrorism of the Muslim Brotherhood. One demonstrator spoke into a camera of The Tennessean and said:
We are hoping you all pray for us in Egypt. Egypt is under siege right now by the Muslim Brotherhood. We hope you pray for a free Egypt, a democratic Egypt and peace in the Middle East.
