JNS.org 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.
