Why has there been a great-and little reported-Christian exodus from the Middle East, with some two million fleeing in the past 20 years alone?
This Christian exodus is a result of many factors, including the fighting between Israelis and Palestinians, the related decline of the economy, but perhaps most significantly, the religious persecution these Christians encounter from their Muslim neighbors.
"First comes saturday, then commes sunday "is a well known sentence in the Middle East meaning : "First we take care of the Jews (who pray on saturday) then we will take care of Christians, the "sunday people"
Pierre Rehov addresses again this alarming trend in his new film, a sequence of "Holy Land: Christians in Peril. The film is a documentary containing interviews with Christians as well as exclusive footage showing how dangerous their Situation is under Islamic rule.
