JNS.org –  Israeli Christians leaders have a launched a new group called the Emergency Mission for Christians in the Middle East to take action on behalf of persecuted Christians in that region.

“It is a dark time in the Middle East… extreme Islamist ideology has taken hold in the Middle East and is on a mission to destroy our Christian history, culture and identity,” said Father Gabriel Naddaf, chairman of the Christian Empowerment Council and one of the new group’s organizers.

“We must act to help, showing our love and care for our Christian sisters and brothers in the Middle East,” Naddaf added.

According to Naddaf, the group is relying on donations to provide “immediate aid to persecuted and victimized Christians across the Middle East.”

This will include medical aid kits, humanitarian supplies, food, survival equipment, training for volunteers, summer camps for refugees’ children, and a medical care truck in Iraq.

The group will work together with the Israeli aid organization Rescuers Without Borders, which was founded in 2005 “to provide assistance to the local population in Israel and the Palestinian territories.” Rescuers Without Borders has since expanded to “save and improve” lives across the world utilizing hundreds of rescuers, EMTs, doctors, nurses, psychologists, and ophthalmologists across 12 international hubs.

“It’s our duty to help the survival of Christianity in such a dark time in the Middle East. Each donation counts, no matter how small, to help those who are suffering and to help save lives,” Naddaf said.

    What goes around comes around.

    Before the Christian Arabs felt they were being oppressed by their Muslim rulers they were always anxious to denigrate and condemn Israel and Jews.
    Now they are paying the price for their perfidy and expect their former victims to give them sympathy and aid.
    I would like to see all their expectations denied.
    Fortunately for them Jews are not Christians.
    But upon seeing an opportunity the Christians will always turn once more upon their favourite scapegoats , their Jewish benefactors.

    Why don’t they follow the teachings of their Jewish founder, Jesus
    Christ, and instead of feeling sorry for themselves they can glory in ‘Turning the other cheek,’
