The Greek Orthodox Church of Antioch and the Levant has strongly criticized France's offer to grant Iraqi Christians political asylum, describing the move as an attempt to empty the region from the adepts of Christ.The church charged that Muslim extremists persecuting Christians were being supported logistically and militarily by states through undeclared alliances.In a related development, Future Movement MPs expressed solidarity with Iraqi Christians Wednesday and called for providing them with aid similar to that given to Syrian refugees.
