TODAY, ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST, CHRISTIANS FACE EXISTENTIAL THREATS
In Iraq the Christian population has collapsed from more than a million to just 250,000 since the invasion of 2003.
In Syria more than a third of the country’s 1.5 million Christians have been forced to flee their homes.
Fifty years ago, Christians comprised 50% of Lebanon’s population, today that number is down to 35%.
In Egypt, Christian Copts are being viciously squeezed between many who believe they assisted the overthrow of the Morsi government, and the military regime that replaced it, which has failed to respect their democratic rights.
In Israel, Christians live in an uneasy limbo between sympathy for Palestinian independence and Israeli efforts to divide them from their Muslim co-nationalists.
