Middle East Conflict

The Middle East has long been the site of religious and ethnic animosities, often erupting into outright warfare. Christians have tended in the past to view these events through the prism of biblical prophecies regarding the End Times. Today, they watch the Middle East with a wary eye, worried about the safety of resilient Christian minorities seeking to carve out a precarious existence for themselves amid a hostile climate of persecution. Many fear that the wave of revolutions touched off in 2011, and dubbed by some as the “Arab Spring,” will empower Islamist elements that will drive Christian communities from their ancient homelands.
