BBC Radio 4: Iraq's Forgotten Conflict
Tuesday 6th April 2010Edward Stourton tells the story of Iraq's religious minorities, which are facing extinction from targeted killings and forced exile.
The Archbishop gives his contribution in this programme which was broadcast on BBC Radio 4 on 6th April 2010, and BBC World Service on 21st April 2010.
Just what is happening to these urbane, educated, intelligent minorities? Why is it happening? What can be done? And what hope can there possibly be for that 'pluralistic democracy'?
The Archbishop blames Western ignorance of Christianity in Iraq, which is not about missionaries and converts – it was there long before St Augustine turned up in Britain on his mission of conversion, and half a millennium before the Prophet Mohammed was born.
