Finally: Prince of Wales Showing Some Backbone on the Plight of Christians

Prince Charles actually saying something I agree with?!?

I know, I can hardly believe it myself. But it is true. 

This is good stuff and yes-pretty brave. 

It's much safer to stick with wacky eco-concerns, so kudos to him for talking about a real problem, with real lives at stake.  That is the honourable thing to do, talking about the massacre of Christians by Muslims in the Middle East is the moral thing to do-such candor befits a member of the Royal family.

Look, it's not quite as forceful as it should and it contains the obligatory softball can't-we-all-get along pap (which did not work out very well for Theo Van Gough of course), but it's a very good start.

If the Prince is speaking more candidly about this, it is a good thing and a show of courage and moral fortitude and that must be commended.
