Rome, 19 Oct. (AKI) - Christians are at risk of being targeted by Muslim fundamentalist organisations because they are considered a symbol of Western culture, said Italian foreign minister Franco Frattini.
"Fundamentalists equate Christianity with a West that should be attacked," he said on Tuesday during a speech at a Rome conference on Christians in the Middle East.
Christians are the victims of two-thirds of murders related to "religious hatred", he said.
"Christianphobia today is a growing danger," he added.
I was going to include some pictures of Christian school children beheaded by men adhering to the murderous tenets of Islam but I just cannot. If you wish to be dismayed and disgusted, google images under "Islam Violent."
