John Batchelor had an important, news-making interview last night (8/23/12) on his radio program. He broadcasts live after 9 p.m. on WABC radio (WMAL in Washington). In the 10 p.m. hour (second hour), Batchelor and Malcolm Hoenlein interviewed Dr. Asharaf Ramelah, founder and president of Voice of the Copts, a human rights organization that defends Coptic Christians. (On the recording, start at 9 min 30 sec / 39:56.)
The conversation focused on dangerous changes in Egypt that are taking place after the Muslim Brotherhood gained power with the inauguration of Mohammed Morsi as president. The interview’s conclusion was alarming. Batchelor: “Right now, the Copts in Cairo, are they safe tonight?” Ramelah: “Nobody is safe in Cairo. No Copts, other Muslims are also not safe. Anybody who is against the Muslim Brotherhood is not safe in Egypt.”
So much for the Arab Spring.
