CAIRO, EGYPT (Worthy News)-- An Egyptian Christian cleric has chastised President Barack Obama and his administration for not speaking out against the Muslim Brotherhood's persecution of the Church, according to the Christian Broadcasting Network News.
In the aftermath of the destruction of many church buildings by Brotherhood members, Father Rafic Greiche, spokesman for the Catholic Church in Egypt, criticized Obama for not speaking out against the worst violence seen by Egyptian Christians in nearly 700 years.
"President Obama, when he made a speech, he just touched on the burning churches instead of telling the Muslim Brotherhood that they are terrorists and they are making terror on Egypt," said Greiche. "He did not speak loud for this and shame on him if he is a Christian ..."
"Obama does not appear to understand the situation," Greiche told AsiaNews. "He didn't even so much as mention all the churches and Christian buildings being burnt down by the Muslim Brotherhood.
"This must absolutely be made clear: the Muslim Brothers are terrorists and are tied to groups belonging to al-Qaeda and to the Salafites. The history of the Muslim Brotherhood, even since their foundation, has been a history of 85 years of bloodshed."
Egypt's deputy president of the Supreme Constitutional Court, Tahani al-Gebali, recently claimed that President Obama has a connection to the Brotherhood through his own half-brother, Malik Obama.
