Seems State Department Spokeswoman Jen Psaki issued a statement on Saturday condemning the series of bombings in Baghdad last week that killed more than 70. The release, in part, contained the following:
The United States condemns in the strongest possible terms the cowardly attacks today in Baghdad. These attacks were aimed at families celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday that marks the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The terrorists who committed these acts are enemies of Islam and a shared enemy of the United States, Iraq, and the international community.
While the sentiment is admirable, I cannot help wondering at the deafening silence from State in regards to the uncounted hundreds of Coptic Christians who have been targeted and killed by Islamists, including the Muslim Brotherhood, since these new waves of murders began in January of 2011.
Since the pro-Morsi Brotherhood and Jemaah Islamiyah groups have taken to the streets in armed mobs, the killing of Christians and burning of their houses of worship have begun anew. Yet, there has not been a peep from our State Department, no declaration condemning the “enemies of Christianity”, no solidarity with the international Christian community. Nothing but thunderous, telling, shameful silence.
Oh, there WAS DNI James Clapper telling us that the Muslim Brotherhood is a largely secular organization. Apparently our Director of National Intelligence is not very competent. But hey. This Administration seems pretty good at surveillance of the true threat, the American people.
