In the midst of an almost incoherent foreign policy in Egypt, Christian churches and their membership are being deliberately targeted and destroyed on a daily basis. Still, American military aid to that country will continue.
Why? Well, because what with all the dramatically unsuccessful rapprochement to Middle East Muslims, Christians still don’t matter.
“Walk softly, and carry no stick,” is our guiding principle, and we don’t want to offend Muslims by standing up for those they are willfully and systematically turning into refugees.
We’ll even stand down from defending an ambassador! Why? Well, think of all that we have gained in the region over the last 6 years! We surely can’t risk losing our strong credibility.
