Thank you to Qatar cabinet on the same subject

Cabinet condemns genocide of Iraqi Christians

Cabinet condemns genocide of Iraqi Christians HE the Prime Minister and Foreign Minister Sheikh Hamad bin Jassim bin Jabor al-Thani presided over the weekly Cabinet session held yesterday at the Emiri Diwan.

After the meeting HE the Minister of State for Cabinet Affairs Sheikh Nasser bin Mohamed bin Abdul Aziz al-Thani stated the following: At the outset of the meeting the Cabinet expressed Qatar’s condemnation of genocide, terrorising and displacement of Christians in northern Iraq which could undermine security and stability in the country and target its national unity. The Cabinet underlined the need to provide security to all the categories and sects of the Iraqi people and to protect Christians, to ensure their security and safety and to respect their rights and dignity.

The Cabinet called on the Iraqi people to unite in the face of such ugly acts to help maintain the unity of the country and the right of all its sects and categories to live within it in security and peace.

A reminder to my blog readers who are Christian that Qatar recently witnessed the consecration of its first Catholic cathedral, and other Christian denominations are building churches on nearby land, generously granted by the Emir for this purpose.
