Arab leaders on Wednesday voiced their “total rejection” of foreign interference in Arab affairs, especially over the region’s Christian minorities.
“Arab kings and presidents… express their total rejection of attempts by certain states and foreign parties to intervene in Arab affairs in the name of protecting the minorities of the East,” they said in a final statement after the Arab Economic and Social Development Summit in Egypt. This “demonstrates a regrettable lack of understanding of the nature of the terrorist acts… and a harmful ignorance of the history of the people of the region.”
Arab leaders said they opposed “any foreign attempt to interfere in Arab affairs under any pretext, or using events to tarnish the image of Islam and Muslims, or to sow sectarianism between Muslims and Christians.”

For these autocrats to reject “foreign interference” is beyond absurd. None of them would stay in power for even one day if their patrons in Washington, London, Moscow and Paris stopped “interfering” in their countries by providing them with the weapons, money and expertise they could never produce themselves and which they need as much as they need the very air they breathe.
So this statement rejecting “foreign interference” is meaningless except as a reminder that Christians in Arab countries should not expect help from any earthly kingdom. Their governments won’t be persuaded by outside pressure to respect their freedom of religion or human rights.
As I have said before on this blog, the Arab Christians are giving us all a great example of how we need to stop looking to governments and other things we pledge allegiance to in THIS WORLD for our help, and get serious about looking to Yeshua Ha’Mashiach (Jesus Christ) as the only source of our hope and strength.
Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.
