Americans believe in defending our freedom. We support and sympathize with courageous people in other countries who rise up, often in extreme danger, to claim their freedom.
That's why the current events in Egypt are deeply troubling. Egyptians are rising up to defend their freedom. Hundreds of thousands of them are protesting Moammed Morsi’s dictatorial regime.
They are in grave danger. Reports tell of Egypt's ruling party "paying gangs of thugs to sexually assault women" who participate in the protests. And the Muslim Brotherhood is "paying gangs to beat up men" who speak out.
But that's just the beginning of this grisly nightmare. An Egyptian newspaper reports that Mohammed Morsi's government is torturing those who dare to dissent.
Why hasn't our President expressed outrage over the atrocities being committed? He was deeply disturbed at waterboarding that was done to protect American lives, but he's turned a blind eye to these vile acts.
And why is Barack Obama sending 1.3 BILLION dollars of tanks and weapons to this evil regime?
Please pray, and do whatever you can, for our liberty-loving friends in Egypt.
