Coptic Christians In Orange Jump Suits Demonstrate at White House

By    |   Wednesday, 25 Feb 2015 06:08 PM

A group of Coptic Christians demonstrated in front of the White House Tuesday, dressed in orange jumpsuits like those murdered by the Islamic State in Libya earlier this month.

Twenty of the 50 demonstrators wore orange jump suits and knelt in front of the White House with their hands held behind their backs to symbolize those who were beheaded earlier this month, The Washington Post is reporting.

The demonstrators then marched from the White House to Capitol Hill with a police escort. The group was demanding that the United States make a more aggressive fight against ISIS and other Islamic terrorist groups.

"Obama, Obama, did you see? Christian blood in the sea," was their chant.

One of the demonstrators present was Hanna Assad, 29, who now lives in Fairfax, Virginia and works as a network engineer. He immigrated several years ago from Egypt. However, one of his cousins and best friends moved to Libya, where they were able to find work, as other Coptic Christians had done.

Assad's cousin, Samuel Alham, was one of the 21 Coptic Christians kidnapped and beheaded by ISIS in mid-February.
