Attacks On Christians In The Middle East

I've criticised Rowan Williams before, pretty recently when he was guest editor of the New Statesman, but I like to think I'm nothing if not fair. So it's only right to applaud the Archbishop for highlighting the increasingly desperate situation of Christians during this 'Arab Spring'.

He claimed there had been more killings of Christians and burnings of churches in Egypt than people were aware of and that life was unsustainable for Christians in northern Iraq, and tensions in Syria were nearing breaking point.

It's good to see a public figure telling it how it is and not how they'd like it to be.

I came across this on the eChurch Blog.

A Reluctant Sinner has an excellent post on Christian persecution and martyrdom around the world.
