Why don’t we care about Christians in the Middle East?

28 Apr


“Do we want to be the generation that stood by as Christians disappeared almost entirely from the ancient homelands they have occupied since the days of the New Testament?” – so asked Peter Feavor and Will Inboden in last September’s issue of Foreign Policy magazine. They were Americans addressing a largely American audience. In Britain, however, I’m not so sure we care.

In April 2016, the British Parliament unanimously declared that what ISIS had been doing to Christian and Yazidi minorities in Iraq and Syria should be counted as “genocide”. But what interest has come of it, what action, what policy initiative? Nothing that I can think of.



Share, encourage, uplift, inspire  and help spread HOPE, LOVE and LIGHT
