Kucinich: US Must Do More to Protect Religious Minorities Abroad

By Wanda Carruthers   |  

The United States must do more to protect religious minorities, particularly Christians, who have come under attack in other countries, former Rep. Dennis Kucinich said Wednesday.

"We need to see the State Department involved, and not just condemning, but in taking action to try to protect Christians and other religious minorities," the Ohio Democrat said on "Fox & Friends."

Christians are under attack in 50 countries worldwide, but particularly in the Middle East, Kucinich said, adding that the U.S. policy may be partly to blame.

"We have to be aware that a partial reason is Western intervention. U.S. comes in. We knock off a government. Radicalization takes place. And, Christians end up getting targeted. That's a fact," said Kucinich, now a Fox News contributor.

Kucinich maintained the U.S. should alter its policy when it gets involved in the workings of foreign governments to ensure religious minorities are not targeted.

"We must be aware that when we intervene, as we did in Iraq, that Christians ended up getting some of the blowback. That's a fact. It's not just about one administration. It's about U.S. policy," he added.
