Jim WallaceJim Wallace is the deputy chairman of the Australian Christian Lobby. In this interview with the ACL's Katherine Spackman, Mr Wallace talks about his recent trip to the Middle East where he assessed the situation of minorities in the Syrian conflict. He says that Christians are vulnerable to both sides of the conflict and that the Syrian opposition is being radicalised by previously moderate Sunnis under the influence of the Al Qaeda proxy Al Nusra. He says there are reports that as many as 200 Australians might be fighting for Al Qaeda in Syria and urges western countries to pass Anti-Mercenary laws that will forbid nationals from fighting as mercenaries.
