White House speaks out to specifically condemn violence against Christians in Egypt

Over 60 Christian churches in Egypt have been attacked as Morsi supporters are targeting the Coptic sects. Now, after several press conferences, the White House more clearly condemns condemned the violence against the Coptic Christians after several days of denouncing violence by the military-run government against supporters and members of the Muslim Brotherhood.

While President Obama has been lumped in with the Muslim Brotherhood's President Morsi by protesters, the White House has now spoken out to condemn the violence against Christians

“We have condemned in unambiguous terms all of the violence that has been perpetrated there in Egypt,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters Wednesday. “We have been concerned and condemned the violence that was perpetrated by the government against peaceful protestors and we’re just as outraged and just as concerned about reports that Christian churches have been targeted.”

The response was an answer to a question from Fox News reporter Ed Henry. On Monday, USA Radio Network reporter Connie Lawn asked Earnest a similar question during the White House press briefing, but Earnest ignored the question.

“The violence in Egypt should come to an end,” Earnest said Wednesday. “It needs to stop and that is the way we are going to facilitate reconciliation that will allow the interim government to make good on their promise, to transition back to a democratically elected civilian government. We need to see an inclusive process get started there.”
