Ed West today has an article in the Telegraph in which he notes the current plight of Iraqi Christians and suggests Britain should take action in this regard, even to the point of offering sanctuary here in the UK.
I used to posit the same, but now my views have shifted.
Rather than remove this ancient Christian presence from the region, they should be given their own territory and homeland.
Sound impossible? It has been achieved in the past; just think Israel.
How would this be achieved; where would this territory be located? No idea, but I still think it’s a solution worth floating even though it’s not realistic.
Short of assimilating Christian minority groups from Islamic lands into Western nations, what is to be done?
From a purely pragmatic perspective, imagine the strategic benefits of a small Christian nation allied to the West and located in the Middle East!
I like the sound of it, even if it is only the land of my imaginings…..
