Like the rest of the world, I have been transfixed by the discovery in Cleveland of three young women who were freed this week after a decade in captivity near their homes.
As far as I am concerned, the three brothers can be let loose in an Ohio prison, especially one rife with Hispanic gangs. There they might get a real education in rape, pillage and murder.
Yet I am just as concerned about reports (including one published today) of the 500 Coptic women in Egypt, kidnapped by Islamic countrymen, raped and forced into conversion and marriage to appropriate members of the Religion of Peace.
From today's American Thinker:
At the Children of Holocaust Survivors site, Frank Crimi highlights a 2012 report commissioned by Christian Solidarity International describing "500 cases of Coptic females having been kidnapped and forcibly converted to Islam." Furthermore, the article goes on to explain that Coptic Orthodox Pope Tawadros II has called the kidnapping and forced conversion of Christian girls a "disgrace for the whole of Egypt," while also asking, "[c]an any family accept the kidnapping of their daughter and her forced conversion?"
Crimi writes that "...while many Christian families may not be accepting of this horrendous practice, it may be safe to assume that the Obama administration is, given its recent decision to send over $200 million to Egypt in financial assistance." In fact, "[t]hat money, which is part of more than $1 billion in US financial aidpromised to Egypt by President Obama in 2012, was reportedly contingent upon the Egyptian government's promises of economic and political reforms, a benchmark that the Obama administration apparently believes has been met."
President Barrack Obama this week told members of our military that sexual harassment in their ranks is unacceptable. Isn't freedom from kidnap, rape and worse one of the 'human rights' his administration is so focused on?
