A group of American Muslim and Christian organizations announced the formation of an interfaith coalition to protect Christians and other religious minorities in the Middle East.
Leaders of major Muslim and Christian organizations, religious leaders and activists met in Washington, D.C., at the invitation of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation, to form a specific plan of action for the protection of Christians and religious minorities.
As a first step, Coalition members agreed to hold two conferences to develop support for Christians and religious minorities in the Middle East. The first conference will be held in Washington, D.C., followed by a second conference in an Arab country.
The committee elected Sir Rateb Y. Rabie, president/CEO of the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation, as chair and expressed an open arms policy to all organizations and groups committed to its mission.
The Free Muslims Coalition is delighted to be working with the Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation and other groups for peace, justice and the common good.
