Who Rescues Endangered Christians?

Burning church copts egyptIt’s pretty clear that in the midsts of the coming civil war in Egypt, the ancient population of Chritian Copts is not going to fare well

Many ancient churches were destroyed in the last few days. It’s going to get worse. There’s a good blog post about Copts in the Times of Israel:

Since the fall of Morsi, Copts have suffered from attacks on an almost daily basis. Most of the Copts subjected to violence are also suffering from deep poverty, living in government-abandoned villages in Upper Egypt. While the Muslim mobs used to create false accusations as a means to justify their attacks, today they attack Copts indiscriminately, for no reason at all. In Rafah, one Coptic priest was shot dead in broad day-light in a busy market street, another Copt was found beheaded in the same area, and a Christian man in Al Minya was attacked simply because we was listening to military music.

Earlier this week, when the army and police started their crackdown against Morsi’s supporters, the Islamists reacted by striking back against the army and by attacking Copts, as promised. In less than 24 hours an estimated 20 Coptic churches, houses and community buildings were torched all over Egypt. The Egyptian military is cleaning house and the Copts are paying a heavy price.

The Mossad’s primary role (ever since it’s creation) has been the rescue of Jews from all over the world. Not intelligence gathering, not finding Nazis, not bumping off Iranian nuclear scientists: it’s done all those things too (probably) but along the way it rescues Jews.

Out of all the notionally Christian countries in the world, which one rescues or protects endangered Christians?

Just asking.
