Congress considers military aid cuts to Egypt because of persecution
WASHINGTON (AP) - Some members of Congress say the U.S. should
consider suspending the $1 billion a year in military aid it gives
to Egypt unless the rights of Egyptian Christians are fully
Elyce Anderson, foreign policy director for Congressman Frank
Wolf, says that appeal is in a letter circulating on Capitol Hill
that will be sent to President Barack Obama. She and other
advocates for religious freedom addressed the Family Research
Council on Wednesday.
Ann Buwalda, executive director of the Jubilee Campaign USA,
said "Coptic Christians are fleeing Egypt in droves" to escape
attacks from Islamists and government forces that have intensified
since the overthrow of President Hosni Mubarak.
Thomas Farr, director of the Religious Freedom Project at
Georgetown University, says the U.S. should warn Egypt's leaders
that their transition to democracy is doomed to failure unless they
grant full and equal rights to their millions of Coptic Christians.
