Christians in the Middle East

Two contrasting perspectives on the plight of Christian populations in the Middle East.  The first comes from Austin Ivereigh, writing for the Guardian.  The second from Robert Fisk, contributing to the Independent.  Read and comment.

  1. Fisk touched on an issue that has truly bothered me about contemporary American Evangelicalism…the majority of Protestant churches hold to a pre-millennial, pre-tribulational theology of the last days which blindly supports a Zionistic Israeli agenda without any consideration to the oppression and difficulties of Arab Christians living in Palestine.

    As a Christian I try to stay current on issues effecting Christians in the Middle East, be it the rise in Muslim-Coptic violence in Egypt to Arab Christians plight in Palestine. I believe that Fisk’s ending point is that “Western” Christians view the Middle East as full of Muslims and historic Christian sites, without considering their brothers and sisters in faith as they often face persecution and discrimination in their homeland.
