MidEast Christians need international help

The support of the international community, including Hungary is necessary for the survival of the Middle Eastern Christian communities who constitute the roots of Christianity, the Maronite Patriarch of Antioch, Bechara Boutros al-Rahi told Hungarian public channel M1.

The patriarch, who was invited to Hungary’s national holiday by Deputy PM Zsolt Semjen and Archbishop Peter Erdo, stressed that Middle Eastern Christians, the indigenous people of the reason paid an enormous price for the war.

He said that the size of the Christian population in Syria and Iraq has decreased by millions, so Hungary is right to support the Christians, the survival of their communities, the Christian civilisation in the region. The patriarch warned that fundamentalism and radicalism are growing among the Muslim population.

During his visit, Bechara Boutros al-Rahi met President Janos Ader and Laszlo Kover, the President of the Parliament too.
