(first we kill the Jews, then we take care of the Christians)
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?
One of the most important aspects of the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict that has been overlooked is the
plight of Christians in the Holy Land. Christians in the Palestinian
territories have dropped from 15 percent of the Arab population
in 1950 to just two percent today. 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.
English-speaking French journalist Pierre
Rehov addresses this alarming trend in his new film, The 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.
