“….In Australia, Labor and Greens politicians responded negatively to news that the Liberal Coalition has provided asylum to several thousand Christians fleeing Islamic State genocide in its dedicated program for Syrian refugees. Greens senator Nick McKim created a distinction between selecting on “genuine need” and religion in relation to the Syrian intake, and described the latter as “disgusting”.

He stated that more Muslims have been killed in the Middle Eastern conflict than members of any other religion.

The Barnabas Fund charity rescues Christians from Syria and reports they are at risk of violence in “Muslim-majority shelters.. ” Islam Nation’s Christian Genocide
