Jbeil Maronite Archbishop Beshara Rai said Monday that an Islamic summit should announce its stance from fundamentalists that are attacking Christians in the region.
Islamic and Arab countries should also make a stance from the latest attacks on Christians in Iraq and Egypt, he told LBC TV network.
"Egyptian authorities should protect Christians," Rai said, adding "no one has the right to consider Christians second class citizens."
They should have equal rights with Muslims, he told LBC.
On Sunday, Rai urged Lebanese officials to be on full alert to prevent the infiltration of terrorist networks to Lebanon following the deadly church bombing in the Egyptian city of Alexandria.
