Christianity in the Middle East
I write today about why Copts have to be nervous about the Egyptian revolution, and about the nightmare the new Iraq has been for Christians:
It’s an irony almost too bitter to bear that George W. Bush, an evangelical Christian fired by a vision of freedom with religious overtones, waged a war of liberation in Iraq that led to the uprooting of the country’s Christians. And did almost nothing to prevent it, or even remark upon it. Iraq’s Christians are the collateral damage of the country’s post-Saddam revolution.
