Persecution of Christians in the Middle East

Last week I wrote about the persecution of Christians.

It seems that not only is the persecution of Christians on the rise, but the media's acknowledgment and coverage of Christian persecution is also increasing.

I think it's about time that the mainstream media started reporting on the persecution of Christians in majority Muslim countries.

In the West we put so much effort into accomodating minorities and into fighting negative stereotypes about Muslims that the media has been quick to turn a blind eye to this trend, which is certainly something which is not only a recent developement.

Here are 2 videos from CNN and here is a link about Egyptian Christians in Canada who are being targeted by an Al-Qaeda affiliated group.
