The heir to the British throne, Prince Charles, said that he is “deeply troubled” by the plight of Christians in the Middle East.

“I have for some time now been deeply troubled by the growing difficulties faced by Christian communities in various parts of the Middle East,” Prince Charles said at a London reception honoring Middle East Christians that was attended by the Archbishop of Canterbury and Britain’s chief rabbi, The Telegraph reported.

“It seems to me that we cannot ignore the fact that Christians in the Middle East are increasingly being deliberately targeted by fundamentalist Islamist militants,” he said.

Earlier in the day, Prince Charles was joined by Jordan’s Prince Ghazi on a tour of Middle East Christian churches in Britain, including a Syriac Orthodox Cathedral and a Coptic Orthodox Church, where he was presented with an icon of St. George in honor of his baby grandson Prince George.

  1. It should be noted that there are christians and then there are Christians. You will always have the genuine and the cultural posers. Just as all Jews are not dishonest lawyers, so all Christians are not ignorant racists. Also, back in the day, the Pope would not allow anyone to own a translated Bible so most people knew only what they were told. They did not know that the Jews were not Christ killers because Jesus said that he laid down his life and no man took it from him. Thus 'no man ' was guilty of his death. Furthermore he came for the express purpose of dying on a cross.

    My support for Israel cost me my job but I don't regret it, although I do miss the income. :o) During the Holocaust some Christians lost their lives trying to help the Jewish people.
