The United Kingdom’s Prince Charles addressed a problem largely ignored by President Obama — Christians being targeted for persecution in the Middle East and North Africa by fundamentalist Muslims.
The prince made his remarks at a reception for religious leaders at Clarence House, the official London residence of The Prince of Wales, according to The Telegraph.
Prince Charles’ comments were a subject for the Wednesday night panel on Fox News’ “The Kelly Files.” After playing a short clip of his remarks, host Megyn Kelly called for reactions.
“I can’t believe I’m saying this, but good for Prince Charles,” Monica Crowley said, adding that it’s an issue that has failed to gain traction in the West “because it’s Christians who are being prosecuted.”
Democratic pollster Bernard Whitman said that as a gay Jew, he felt particularly “sensitive to the plight of the persecuted.”
“At the end of the day, discrimination, hate, persecution, prejudice all comes from the same place — it’s ignorance, it’s fear and it’s wrong,” he added.
