Egyptian Christians, Muslims March Against Obama
AINA ^ | 23 Aug 13 | Mark Martin

Posted on 08/23/2013 6:41:41 PM PDT by xzins

Hundreds of Egyptian protestors, many of them Coptic Christians, rallied in front of the White House Thursday, outraged over President Barack Obama's support of the Muslim Brotherhood.

"Don't support terrorists!" protestor Hale Salem said. "Don't support terrorists! Please, Mr. Obama I voted for you -- don't support terrorists."

"He's asking us as Egyptians to leave the terrorists in Egypt alone? To kill us, to kill our people? It's not gonna happen," another protestor declared.

Muslims were also present, voicing their opposition against the Brotherhood.

"I'm a Muslim," demonstrator Mina Khalifa said. "It's not a Christian thing. It's an Egyptian thing."

Another Muslim protestor, Suzanne Elnahal, said, "They are terrorists; they have done so many problems in Egypt."

Meanwhile, there are new concerns the old regime is making a comeback, as former Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak was released from prison and flown to a military hospital. He is now under house arrest.

But protestors say Mubarak wasn't as bad as ousted President Mohammed Morsi.

"He's not really a good guy, but he's not at least a terrorist," anti-Brotherhood demonstrator Layla Sedhom said. "But Mohammed Morsi is a terrorist. He belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood."

The protestors say the Egyptian military is needed to keep order.

"They protect us from (the) Muslim Brotherhood," Madline Mansour, a Coptic Christian, said. "Muslim Brotherhood kill us, kill all Christian people. Morsi is a terrorist. He belongs to the Muslim Brotherhood."

Those at the rally say the Brotherhood has burned dozens of Christian churches, businesses, and more.

"For the Coptic Christians, they burn their houses. They're targeting them," one protestor said.

The protestors are also angered by Western media coverage of the situation in Egypt. They rallied against the Washington Post, accusing both the newspaper and Obama of being biased in favor of the Muslim Brotherhood.

"So the Obama administration helps the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt; that's not right," anti-Brotherhood protestor Sawers Kamel said. "That has a lot of question marks. Why? Why?"

The time to impeach the Kenyan has come. The Founding Fathers were right. Foreigners should never sit in the White House. Americans only.

The makeup of the demonstrators, their understanding of the facts and their savvy of the news media, are all very encouraging.

March against OBAMA...not America.

Think this will be discussed on the Sunday morning talk shows? Remember how we were constantly told that the Arab streets were erupting in protest against Bush?

Instead, the media is now focused on the Clown calling one of his low information voters while TV cameras are focused on her in a CNN makeup room.

CNN: wanting to be Obama’s whore more than PMSNBC.
