Survey/Question [survey] *Update from Senator Bob Corker October 25, 2013* *Attacks on Christians in Egypt Warrant A Clear U.S. Response* In a letter [link 5] to Secretary of State John Kerry this week, Senators Bob Corker, Lamar Alexander and Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said recent reports of more frequent, targeted attacks against Coptic churches and individuals in Egypt �warrants a clear U.S. response.� �Egypt�s Christian minority and their ability to worship are in danger. The situation warrants a clear U.S. response. We are especially troubled by reports that Egyptian authorities have failed to respond to attacks on Christians and churches, or hold perpetrators accountable,� wrote the senators. �It is our view that Egypt is part of a broader trend: religious freedoms throughout the Middle East and South Central Asia, particularly for Christians, are under assault. The U.S. must respond to this challenge and continue to be a forceful defender of religious freedom throughout the world. We recognize this is not an easy task. We offer our support and stand prepared to work with you as you find ways to use U.S. influence to stop sectarian violence and end the persecution of Coptic Christians in Egypt.� To read the letter in its entirety, click here [link 6]. In an interview [link 7] on Fox News on Wednesday, Senator Corker reiterated the need for the U.S. to play a role in ensuring Christians and other minorities are protected around the world.
