Click “play” on the file below to hear an interview with ICC’s Jonathan Racho and a church leader from the area in Ethiopia where Christian churches and homes were burned to the ground by Muslim mobs in the first week of March. The church leader describes the situation for the 10,000 displaced Christians and what Christians around the world can do to help stand with our brothers and sisters.
This one’s for our Ethiopian / Amharic-speaking followers. ICC’s Jonathan Racho gave an interview to Voice of America this week regarding the crisis in Ethiopia – if you understand Amharic, we encourage you to listen to the interview here.
Also, if you have any Ethiopian friends, please pass this link along for their information.
The first part of the interview is the Muslim perspective – claiming that the alleged desecration of the Quran that has been cited as the cause of the attack occurred when Muslims found a Quran in the toilet of a church. Though the man they interviewed cited this as the immediate cause of the attacks, he also mentioned that one of the primary reasons for the attack was evangelism by Christians in Muslim areas.
