John Pontifex while commenting about the persecution of Christians in Syria said, “For the Christians there is the other dimension of very direct persecution. Indeed, we have had reports of what we really can call genocide. Christians being put under pressure by being killed, being forced from their homes, being forced to convert, being forced to pay a jazia tax – an Islamic tax – and all evidence of Christian culture destroyed: Churches, chapels, crosses sanctuaries.”

“We need to stand up for religious freedom. We need to stand up for the right of Christians to remain in their place of origin in the birthplace of Christianity, the cradle of Christianity. The threat to the survival of Christianity in the region is very grave, and the moment to act is now,” he said.
