Faced with the “daily threat of murder” in the Middle East, Christians are on the verge of “imminent extinction,” according to the archbishop of Canterbury in the U.K.’s Telegraph.

“In the birthplace of our faith, the community faces extinction,” Archbishop Justin Welby  wrote in the Sunday Telegraph.

The threat has the most senior clergyman in the Church of England calling for the taking in of more Middle East refugees, the Telegraph reported.

Archbishop Welby added Christians are facing “the worst situation since the Mongol invasions of the 13th Century” in his op-ed headlined: “In the Middle East, Christians are under grave threat – let us show them they are not forgotten.”
