The Disappearing People : The Tragic Fate of Christians in the Middle East
by Stephen M. Rasche




Overview -
Persecution of Minorities in the Middle East.

Western indifference and complicity.

The looming end of Christianity in the Middle East.

For 1,400 years, the Christians of the Mideast lived under a system of sustained persecution as a distinct lower class of citizens under their Muslim rulers. Despite this systemic oppression, Christianity maintained a tenuous--even sometimes prosperous--foothold in the land of its birthplace up until the past several decades. Yet today, Christianity stands on the brink of extinction in much of the Mideast. How did this happen? What role did Western foreign policy and international aid policy play? What of the role of Islam and the Christians themselves? How should history judge what happened to Christians of the Mideast and what lessons can be learned? This book examines these questions based on the firsthand accounts of those who are living it.
