Christians Rally in Israel Against EU Silence on “Ethnic Cleansing” of Middle East Christians – Aryeh Savir (San Diego Jewish World)
(dailyalert.org, Mar. 24, 2014)
150 Christian citizens of Israel demonstratedon Sunday outside the EU’s delegation in Tel Aviv against the EU’s silence on “the ethnic cleansing of Christians throughout the Middle East.”
The protesters demanded that the EU act on their own cry for human rights and fight for the Christians who are quickly becoming extinct everywhere but Israel.
Father Gabriel Nadaf, a Greek Orthodox priest from Nazareth and strong proponent of Christian enlistment in the IDF, demanded that the attacks on Christians be stopped and thanked Israel for being a warm home for Christians.
Shadi Halul, spokesman of the Christian Lobby (CL) which organized the protest, said: “We constantly receive reports from our Christian brethren throughout the Middle East imploring that they be helped, envious of our status as Israeli citizens.”
