Stray dogs get more of the West's attention than persecuted Christians

If they were endangered whales, stranded stray dogs, caravans trying to storm the USA, they would get front page headlines. But they are only Copts and a woman in death row for 'blasphemy.'

Here are the names of the victims of the last massacre of Christians in Egypt. A whole family has been swept away from the face of the earth:

Nady Youssef Shehata, 54 years old

Rida Youssef Shehata, 51 years old

Kamal Youssef Shehata, 20 years old

Poussy Youssef Shehata, 41 years old

Bishoy Rida Youssef Shehata, 15 years old

Marya Youssef Shehata, 12 years old

Asaad Farouk Labeeb, 36 years old

Their “guilt”? Being pilgrims in a land which was Christian six centuries before Islam was even born and that the beasts of the Islamic State are trying to erase.

In eight years, Islamic fundamentalists have killed more than 270 Coptic Christians in Egypt, they kidnapped thousands of Christian girls to marry and convert them to Islam, they burned and destroyed hundreds of churches and Christian shops and forced at least 100.000 of them to flee abroad. Egypt has the largest
Where are those in the West who shout “no to the death penalty”, “respect for minorities”, “down with the femicide” and “long live freedom of expression”?
Christian community in the Arab world. If Christians sink there, they end in the rest of the Middle East.

In the same week, from Pakistan, the news reports were all about a Christian woman, Asia Bibi, who spent a decade in death row before being acquitted of “blasphemy”. The Western élites were silent during the 3.422 days in which this Christian mother was kept in jail. They were silent after Pakistan acquitted her. And they are silent now that the Islamist troglodytes have thrown Pakistan into chaos and claim the scalp of the Christian woman. The Pakistani government capitulated to their violent demands and delayed Asia Bibi's liberation.

Where are those in the West who shout “no to the death penalty”, “respect for minorities”, “down with the femicide” and “long live freedom of expression”? Cowardice is rampant.

Stray dogs are treated with more respect and coverage in our media than all these masses of Christians swallowed by this clash of civilizations.

When on Faroe Island fishermen kill some whale, the Western journalists are all there to write about the animals. For ten Egyptian Christians killed at point-blank and a Christian mother sentenced to death, they have time for just a few lines. Clowns.
