Arab Islamophobia?

Several hundred protesters have rallied in Chicago to call on the United States to provide better security for Christians in Iraq.

Protesters dressed in black finished a Monday afternoon march through downtown at a plaza in front of the Dirksen Federal Building.

One demonstrator held aloft a placard that read, "Save Iraq's Most Vulnerable Population." Others held of graphic photographs from inside Iraqi churches after they'd been attacked.

An organizer, Natasha Shino, says Christians are being forced to flee their homeland. The Chicagoan says Iraqi Christians believe the U.S. can do more to protect them.

The Chicago protest and similar ones around the country come in the wake of a recent bloody siege of a Baghdad church that left around 60 people dead.,0,7788671.story

I'm waiting for the U.S. media to start accusing Iraqi Christians protesting their slaughter by fundamentalist terrorists of "Islamophobia".

Of course, I'm also waiting for Obama to take time out from attacking Israel's settlement policy to comment upon the Islamic fundamentalists' Christian murder policy.
