A combined Plea of Intervention for Persecuted Christians




On Tuesday, December 15th, the Canadian Rabbinic Caucus and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops had a joint meeting and have sent an appeal to Stéphane Dion, the nation’s new minister of foreign affairs, to advocate on behalf of persecuted Christians.

“From Egypt to Iran and from Iraq to Nigeria, Christian communities throughout the region experience persecution in various forms, ranging from state discrimination to intimidation by local populations to attacks by terror groups on churches,” the heads of the rabbinic caucus and episcopal conference said

Acknowledging the widely know fact that Christians suffer a lot of persecutions round the world, their added saying:

“Nevertheless, we humbly request that the Government of Canada make a priority of advocating for at-risk Christian communities throughout the Middle East and Africa, and likewise explore new and effective ways of providing diplomatic and humanitarian assistance to alleviate their suffering.”
