The Catholic Archbishop of Sydney has voiced concern that Australia’s intake of 12,000 Syrian refugees will mostly feature Muslims rather than Christians, Yazidis and Jews. Critics say the UN’s selection process for refugees has failed to target “vulnerable minorities.”

Archbishop Anthony Fisher told The Weekend Australian that the community and Oriental Christians were feeling “very anxious,” unable to “get clarity on what the Australian government is trying to achieve.”

He said Islamic State was meanwhile determined to “exterminate or enslave” Christians.

“Groups like the Yazidis, Christians and Zoroastrians are at peril of extinction in the Middle East at the hands of Daesh,” he told the newspaper, using a pejorative acronym for Islamic State.

Last month the Archbishop of Aleppo, Jean-Clement Jeanbart, said that Christian communities are the “prime target” of Islamic State’s “religious cleansing campaign.”

“We are facing the rage of an extremist jihad; we may disappear soon,” he warned.
