Charge: Hard-Line Islamic Workers At Egyptian Embassy Denying Visas To Coptic Christians

They're Egyptians, not Americans:

The State Department has launched an investigation into whether hard-line Islamic employees at the U.S Embassy in Egypt are working behind the scenes to deny visas to Coptic Christians, The Post has learned.

State Department officials are closely examining 15 to 20 Egyptian employees of the embassy's consular section after top officials received complaints from lawyers and human-rights groups about discriminatory behavior toward the Copts seeking visas to the United States, sources said.

Hundreds, possibly thousands, may have been wrongly denied visas, sources said.


Among those making complaints to the State Department is a Christian man who was seeking to donate a kidney to an uncle in New Jersey.

He says he was twice told to remove the cross he was wearing if he wanted a visa. He refused and was denied a visa.


There have also been complaints that these employees keep posters in the embassy promoting supporters of the Hamas terror group.

What the hell is the problem with the State Department? It's nice that they've begun an investigation, but what the hell are these people doing collecting money from the US government and, perhaps, jeopardizing embassy security?
