Paul: 'We'll Have another Islamic State' in Syria

Ad Feedback

As the West debates military action in Syria, Syrian Christians continue to face an uncertain future.

Many have backed President Bashar al-Assad's regime for fear that if Islamists took control, they would be severely persecuted

It is a point Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., made on NBC's "Meet the Press" this weekend.

"I see Assad, who has protected Christians for a number of decades, and then I see the Islamic rebels on the other side, who have been attacking Christians."

Rand said if Islamic rebels overthrew the government, "We'll have another Islamic state where Christians are persecuted."

Christians make up about 7 percent of Syria's population.
