Archbishop of Canterbury reflects on meeting Iraqi Christians in Jordan

Posted May 3, 2017

[Lambeth Palace] Archbishop Justin and Caroline Welby visited St Paul’s Anglican Church in Amman, Jordan, with Archbishop Suheil Dawani, the Anglican bishop in Jerusalem on the first day of his visit to Jordan, Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

“The intense suffering of Iraqi Christians does not end when they leave Iraq. As I listened, there was this awful sense of lives torn apart.”

    Iraqi Christians are ignored by ECUSA & discriminated against by those at the UN who vet to send people to America. Why do we ignore our brothers & sisters.

    I agree. It’s an absolute disgrace.
