UN, West, Accused of Ignoring Plight of Syria’s Christians

The United Nations and Western nations including Britain have been accused of abandoning Syria’s Christians in the face of widespread persecution by Islamic State and their Muslim countrymen – even within refugee camps.
Last September Britain’s then Prime Minister David Cameron pledged to take 20,000 Syrians from refugee camps in the region to aid the humanitarian effort in response to the Syrian civil war.

But figures obtained from the Home Office through a freedom of information request lodged by Christian Today has now revealed that 97.5 per cent of the Syrian refugees brought to the UK under the government’s resettlement scheme so far are Muslims, whereas Christians account for fewer than two percent.
