Christians United for Israel (CUFI), the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S., condemned the recent attacks on Christianity in Egypt and urged the U.S. government to do more to aid Christians there.

“Events in Egypt this week highlight yet again the tragedy facing the Christians of the Middle East. Once again, Christians are being targeted for murder. Once again Christian schools, businesses and churches are being attacked.  And once again, the world is largely silent,” David Brog, executive director of CUFI, said in a statement.

Brog added, “This is a modern pogrom. The silence must end. The United States must lead. We must make it clear to the Egyptian government, the Muslim Brotherhood and the world that we will not ignore this tragedy.  An important first step must be the immediate passage of H.R. 301, which would ensure that a top administration official will be focused on this issue at all times.”

House Resolution 301 is a bill introduced into the U.S. House of Representatives in January that calls for the U.S. to establish a special envoy to promote religious freedom.

Since Aug. 14, when the Egyptian military cleared two pro-Morsi encampments in Cairo, Islamic terrorists have targeted dozens of Christian churches, schools, businesses, and homes. At least two Christians have also been killed in the violence.

CUFI is the largest pro-Israel organization in the U.S. with more than 1.2 million members. More than 5,000 pro-Israel Christians attended its annual summit in Washington, D.C. earlier this summer.

    It seems so very strange that the U.S. and Britain, as well as other European countries, are silent on this
    important issue. Has Christianity become a non-vote getter for these Administrations?

    What it is, is a Roman Catholic inquisition against the “heresy” of Orthodox Christians. The reason the MSM propaganda outlets and the US gov mafia (and Israeli gov mafia, btw) are compliant, is because they are all controlled by the Vatican by way of the CIA.

    The agenda is the same as it ever was — the genocide of “heretics”. They’re tad more sophisticated about their use of force by using secret agencies and sponsored proxies like the Moslem Brotherhood and al-CIA-da, etc. But the tactics are the same tactics used against Roman “heretics” when the Vatican created and sponsored Islam, and unleashed their army Islamic mass murders on their Roman citizens who were Orthodox Christians and Jews.
