Another Outrageous Moral Equivalency

I don’t know much about the Copts, or any other kind of Christian in Egypt. But, it should be clear to anyone who knows anything about the Middle East, that they are horribly treated and terribly persecuted. And, now that there has been a breakdown in law and order, the Christian community is suffering even more.

The fact that the Obama administration has seen fit to be ‘even handed’ is an outrage. This is the same ‘even handedness’ that has been used to abuse Israel, and now we see it being used to abuse another persecuted minority in the Middle East.

I am so upset, that I’ve run out of words to express the incredible fury at what the West is doing, yet again. Making the victim equally responsible for a crime is one of the lowest forms of evil and completely shameful.

Completely.

We have come expect this kind of awful equivalency with Israel, but to make it so blatant and obvious is a sickening new low. Israel can defend herself. These Egyptian Christians cannot. They are completely and utterly defenseless. How dare the Obama administration do such a thing.

Here are a couple of the stories that got my blood to boil:

Obama Calls for Restraint by Egypt’s Christians

by Keith Koffler on October 13, 2011

President Obama has responded to the Egyptian military’s massacre of Coptic Christian protestors in Cairo Sunday with a pointedly even-handed statement that calls equally on Christians and the military to show restraint.

“The President is deeply concerned about the violence in Egypt that has led to a tragic loss of life among demonstrators and security forces,” Obama said in a statement released this week. ”Now is a time for restraint on all sides so that Egyptians can move forward together to forge a strong and united Egypt.”

Incredibly, Obama is not only equating the deaths of peaceful protestors and their killers, but he is suggesting that Egypt’s increasingly persecuted Christian minority should show as much “restraint” as their tormentors and refrain from vigorously objecting to the growing abuse.

And then there’s Erick Stakelbeck’s article that got me on this topic:

Madness: The Obama Administration Calls on “All Sides” to Show Restraint in Egypt

CBN viewers know all about  the church burning and riots–driven by Muslims who attacked peaceful Coptic Christian protestors–that resulted in the deaths of some  two dozen Egyptian Christians in Cairo last weekend. Well, according to the Obama administration, those besieged Christians must show “restraint” as they are being massacred and maimed by Islamists and the Egyptian military: two factions, ironically enough, that the Obamis empowered when they threw Hosni Mubarak under the bus and pledged support for the so-called Arab Spring earlier this year. Really, you can’t make this stuff up. Here’s more, from Keith Koffler’s White House Dossier:

Is it any wonder that America is going down?
