Christian Persecution ‘Worsens’ Across The Middle East
Persecution of Christians across the Middle East is getting worse according to an Iraqi priest who visited the UK this week to deliver a petition, signed by a staggering 800,000 people, to the Government, calling for immediate help.
The Open Doors ‘Hope for the Middle East’ petition called for a new plan for helping Christians and other minorities facing vicious persecution in the region.
Although Christians are now returning home as ISIS is being beaten back they have returned to find their homes churches and whole communities devasted.
‘Father Daniel’ told the Daily Express:
We are asking all the governments to take action. I am saying action now because there is no time. Many Christians are leaving because their homes and towns and cities are destroyed.
They find their own country doesn’t want them anymore despite being the native people of this country.
Both Conservative and Labour MPs have welcomed the petition and called for the government to take more action to support persecuted Christians, however, we will wait and see what actual action is taken, if any.
