Washington, D.C.- In Defense of Christians Executive Director Kirsten Evans made the following statement:
“In Defense of Christians mourns with the global community over the needless loss and destruction of human life this morning caused by the violent terrorist attacks at the Brussels international airport and subway.
“We echo the messages of Prime Minister Charles Michel calling the attacks ‘blind, violent and cowardly’ and European Council president Donald Tusk, stating, ‘These attacks mark another low by the terrorists in the service of hatred and violence.’
“IDC calls upon the international community to use all resources available to us to stop the bloody assault on Middle Eastern communities, including Christians and other religious minorities, waged by the so-called Islamic State, whose growing ideology of hatred and destruction is being aggressively exported across borders, leaving innocent civilians around the world vulnerable to acts of terror.
“We extend our deepest sympathies and prayers to the people of Belgium and to the families and loved ones of all who lost their lives or were injured in today’s horrific events.”
