Over 45 churches & Christian institutions reportedly attacked in Egypt - Where's the media?

As the Egyptian government attempts to disband supporters of ousted president Mohamed Morsi, a wave of devastating violence has swept through the country. The AP has reported that 638 people have been confirmed killed and nearly 4,000 are injured. It's now being uncovered that much of this violence is being committed against Christians and their institutions.

This morning on radio, Glenn gave his listeners a rundown of the institutions that have been attacked and what is happening to the Christian Egyptians as their nation unwinds into chaos — something the mainstream media has been deafeningly silent on.

The President gave a statement on the issue on Thursday, in which he stated:

“The United States strongly condemns the steps that have been taken by Egypt’s interim government and security forces,” Obama said. “We deplore violence against citizens.”

Unfortunately, it's not simply the "interim government" that is engaging in serious violence. It's his so-called "nonviolent" pals that he helped initially win office, the Muslim Brotherhood.

The supporters of the Muslim Brotherhood have reportedly called for a 'day of rage' (non-violent, of course), yet the president and many in Congress are still considering sending aide to the country.

"I would just like you to keep these churches in your prayers because the front page of TheBlaze has a picture of one of these churches in Egypt that has been burned down," Glenn said. "So just keep these people and these churches in your prayers.  In Egypt these are the churches that have just been burned down by the Muslim Brotherhood.  The Father Maximus churches, the St. George Church, the Good Shepherd's Monastery where the nuns were attacked and burned.  The Angel Michael Church and the St. George Coptic Orthodox church have been burned."

Sadly that's just a small portion of the churches that have come under attack or been destroyed.

"It's really sad — awful," Pat responded after hearing a portion of the list.

TheBlaze.com has obtained a growing list of the institutions from Amira Mikhail at Nile Revolt.

The most shocking part of this story, aside from the horrific violence, obviously, is that in a country where 70% of the population labels themselves Christian, a country with much of it's foundation rooted in Christianity, no major mainstream media outlets are providing major coverage of what is happening in Egypt. Most Americans and American churches are not informed on what is happening to their Christian brothers and sisters in Egypt.

Why?

"This should give you some idea that we have Kristallnacht, the night of broken glass happening," Glenn referenced. "The Kristallnacht, in case you don't know, the night of broken glass, was in Germany.  As they started to blame everything on the Germans, what they did was they burned down the synagogues and then they attacked all of the Jewish businesses."

Much like Kristallnacht was blamed on the communists, the Christians are being blamed in Egypt. And Glenn believe's that Israel will soon be blamed as well.

"This is, by the way, the Muslim Brotherhood," Glenn continued. "The Muslim Brotherhood is the one doing this.  Because they needed somebody to blame.  They couldn't blame it on their fellow Muslims who threw the — Morsi out.  So they had to blame it on somebody.  So they are blaming it on the Christians.  The next target will be the Jews, but this is what's happening to the Christians.  And we're sending $2 billion a year to them, and our government is playing footsie with the Muslim Brotherhood, and this is what they've — this is what they're doing right now.  Right now."

Glenn went on to state that it is time to cut off support and aide to Egypt.

"We're only making things much, much wose," he said. "We are arming and emboldening those people burning down churches, killing Christians, kidnapping and raping Christians girls. 12‑year‑old girls are being taken from their Christian homes at night and raped and married off so they become Muslim.  Wake up.  And call those, call those absolute excuses for human beings in congress and the Senate and the White House that are turning a blind eye, call them what they are.  Despicable.  Those media outlets that are not reporting what's really happening on the ground in Egypt and those politicians like Lindsey Graham who say, "I had no idea it was so bad," you're despicable.  And you're dismissed."

"Support those people who are telling you the truth and support those people who are standing for the truth," Glenn continued. "The rest of them, dismiss them and pay no attention to them."

Countless leaders on the left are now arguing that removing President Donald Trump from office won't be enough — they're now calling for the president's "cult-like" supporters to be "deprogrammed." And it's not just fringe politicians.

During an appearance on "Real Time with Bill Maher" last week, former NBC anchor Katie Couric said, "The question is, how are we going to really almost deprogram these people who have signed up for the cult of Trump."

Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Democratic Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi questioned whether the nation needs "a 9/11-type commission" to determine whether President Trump was colluding with Russian President Vladimir Putin "the day that the insurgents invaded our Capitol." Clinton also made sure to include her favorite "deplorables" in her unsubstantiated conspiracy theory:

"But we now know that not just [Trump] but his enablers, his accomplices, his cult members, have the same disregard for democracy," Clinton said to Pelosi.

Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson and New York Times Magazine's Nikole Hannah-Jones agreed that there is a need for "millions of Americans, almost all white, almost all Republicans" to be deprogrammed and punished, during an MSNBC interview last week.

Now, a story from the Washington Post is also preaching that narrative and even added that we need more restrictions for conservatives on social media and in the broadcast industry.

"So now we have to be deprogrammed? We've heard this over and over and over and over again, for months," said Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday. He read through the shocking details of the Washington Post op-ed and discussed the extraordinary dangers of the latest anti-conservative movement in America.

As calls for censorship and restrictions against conservative voices get louder, Glenn Beck said he feels an "awesome responsibility" to speak, not the words he'd personally like to say, but those he believes the Lord would want him to share.

"It's an awesome responsibility, and one that I am not worthy of," Glenn said. "I want to say ... what He wants me to say. And I have to listen very carefully, because I feel the same way you do. But that will get us nowhere."

Glenn said it's time for Americans who are awake — not woke — to come together, no matter which side of the political aisle you're on, and stand with the truth.

"We are the Alamo, we will stand. But we desperately, desperately need you," Glenn said. "We need the people who are awake — not woke — awake. You may disagree with us. We are your allies, not your enemies. And if you will not stand with us in our hour of need, there will be no one left to stand with you in your hour of need. We must all come together, anyone who is awake."

The incoming Biden administration plans to waste no time in overturning much of the progress achieved by President Donald Trump.

On his radio program Monday, Glenn Beck ran through 10 executive orders President Joe Biden plans to announce on "day one" of his time in office — including rejoining the Paris climate accord, canceling the Keystone pipeline, mask mandates on federal land and during interstate travel, and a proposed federal minimum wage of $15 an hour.

Eric Weinstein, managing director of investment firm Thiel Capital and host of "The Portal" podcast, is not a conservative, but he says conservative and center-right-affiliated media are the only ones who will still allow oppositional voices.

On "The Glenn Beck Podcast" this week, Eric told Glenn that the center-left media, which "controls the official version of events for the country," once welcomed him, but that all changed about eight years ago when they started avoiding any kind of criticism by branding those who disagree with them as "alt-right, far-right, neo-Nazi, etc.," even if they are coming from the left side of the aisle. But their efforts to discredit critical opinions don't stop there. According to Eric, there is a strategy being employed to destroy our national culture and make sure Americans with opposing views do not come together.

"We're trifling with the disillusionment of our national culture. And our national culture is what animates the country. If we lose the culture, the documents will not save us," Eric said. "I have a very strongly strategic perspective, which is that you save things up for an emergency. Well, we're there now."

In the clip below, Eric explains why, after many requests over the last few years, he finally agreed to this podcast.
