I know for a fact that the Copts are not on their own.

Then where was such support in August of 2013 when the Copts in Minya (in Upper Egypt) were subjected to the same atrocities as in the case of the Christians of Mosul and I hope that you are aware that a mini calipahte was declared in the city of Delga back then and Coptic Churches and a 4th century monastery were looted and torched and a church was converted to a mosque and the Copts were asked to pay the Islamic mafia tax the Jizya or convert to Islam and nuns were paraded in the streets and here is a link for what I call the Coptic Kristallnacht

Where was Obama and where was the NYT and the hypocrites the likes of Hillary Clinton and where was the EU and our free press

Just imagine if the opposite was taking place and Copts were torching mosques and converting them into chruches! We would never have heard the end of it

And where is Obama today when the properties of the Christians in Mosul are marked by the Arabic letter ن or N for Nasara or نصارى not unlike the Nazi marking Jewish properties with the Star of David

Where is Obama and where is our so called free press? Taking a nap? despicable!

For the readers the word نصارى or Nasara is read in the Qur'an as Christians but the etymology of the word is not known and even al-Tabari offers different meanings in his exegesis of Q2:62 where he says that it could have something to do with victory (al-Nusra) or it has something to do with the name of the hometown of the Quranic Jesus and it is supposed to be al-Nasira in other words he does not know but the end result it Christains are left with a name that is supposed to be a way to humiliate them after all how would Muslims feel if we start calling them Muhammadans?

When Orthodox Christian priests, and bishops, stick up for Copts in my neck of the woods in Canada, this speaks volumes to those who have ears to hear.

Well the real problem here is "to those that have ears to hear" and the likes of Obama cannot hear
