The Prince of Wales met the leaders Middle East-based Christian churches
Unusually, the British Monarchy has spoken up regarding Christians being persecuted by Islam, and it’s followers.
Prince Charles commented after visiting an Egyptian Coptic church and the Syriac Orthodox cathedral , both based in the UK.
Speaking at a reception after the visits he said:
“For 20 years I have tried to build bridges between Islam and Christianity to dispel ignorance and misunderstanding.
The point though, surely, is that we have now reached a crisis where bridges are rapidly being deliberately destroyed by those with a vested interest in doing so.
This is achieved through intimidation, false accusation and organised persecution including to the Christian communities in the Middle East at the present time.”
Violence against Christians is increasing across the globe, and atrocities in the Middle East have markedly increased of late.
His visits came on the same day that Sky News lead with a story regarding a previously unknown brigade of British fighters in Syria.
The report claims that British security experts have vastly underestimated the number of British Jihadsists in the region.
Speaking on condition of anonymity, one of the brigade, identified as Mustafa said:
“I’m not part of al Qaeda, and I’ve never been a part of al Qaeda – ever, I’m not a terrorist in any way. If people could see how much goodness we have in our hearts, how much mercy we have for people and how much you know we are driven by compassion to help other people they wouldn’t think that we were terrorists.
But this is a line that they have been fed, and there are people that benefit from pushing that narrative about us, so I protect my identity.”
The Britons say they were angered by the lack of international intervention
