Britain’s Prince Charles on Tuesday made a call for solidarity with Middle-Eastern Christians after visiting a Coptic Church in Stevenage and a Syriac Orthodox Church in London, followed by a reception held for Middle-Eastern Christians at Clarence House.
Having stated his 20 years of hard work to build bridges between Islam and Christianity, he expressed his concern saying that those bridges are now being ‘deliberately destroyed.’
The king-to-be said that he was ‘deeply troubled’ by the ‘organized persecution’ of Christians in the Middle-East by ‘fundamentalist Islamist militants’, before calling on fellow Christians to reach out to their co-religionists in the region.
‘Christianity was literally born in the Middle East and we must not forget our Middle Eastern brothers and sisters in Christ,’ he said.
Christians in the Middle-East make up approximately 5% of the overall population and have been living side-by-side with Muslims for fourteen centuries.Güncelleme Tarihi: 18 Aralık 2013, 11:21
