In a new position paper, the Christian Democratic People's Party of Switzerland (CVP) cals for the Swiss government to stop providing development aid to the governments of countries that fail to protect the rights of Christian minorities.

The paper specifically mentions the persecution of Christians in "Muslim lands" and notes that it has increased significantly in recent times. The plight of the Copts in Egypt is discussed in some detail. "States are responsible for ensuring that minorities receive the protection required," it reads. "We must exercise pressure on states to fulfil their responsibilities".

Instead, the paper proposes that money should go to help Christian communities directly or to support organisations that form a "cultural counterweight" to Islamic fundamentalism: "Projects that lead to a strengthening of women and their rights and which focus on the protection of human rights."

The CVP is one of the major political parties in Switzerland. It is not a fringe element. In recent years, it has been losing support to the less politically correct Swiss People's Party, so this may be an attempt to win back lost voters.
