In ancient times, Arab and Jewish Christians were in any case protected against Muslim hostilities as “people of the book.” However, today, in Iraq, Syria, Egypt and Lebanon, Christians of all denominations are being hunted, tortured and killed by Islamists as an unwanted and undesirable minority.

Wherever the Muslim Brotherhood, al Qaeda or other extremist groups prosper by virtue of the absence of a strong government (and internal security force), Christians of that region suffer deprivation, death and different forms of oppression and discrimination.
