US Senate Condems Jan 1 Attacks

In response to the tragic terrorist attack against Coptic Orthodox Christians at al-Qideseen Church in Alexandria during New Year’s Eve prayers, the United States Senate has passed Senate Resolution 22. According to its sponsor, Senator Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey), the resolution “condemns the New Year’s Day attack; calls on Mubarak to identify, locate, and prosecute – to the fullest extent of the law – the criminals responsible for this horrific attack; and urges the Egyptian government to work toward religious freedom and equality of treatment for all Egyptians.”  The resolution passed the Senate unanimously on January 31, 2011.
