The plight of Christians in the Middle East


Guests: Hisham Melman and James Zogby

The Middle East uprisings over the past several years have had a serious impact on Christian communities throughout the region forcing many to flee. In Syria, Egypt and Iraq, Christians have been confronted with violence and discrimination and have even been prevented from practicing their religion. In the Palestinian territories, Christians face economic and political hardship. In this hour of Radio Times we’ll discuss how the changes in the Middle East have threatened Christians who live there. Our guests are journalist HISHAM MELHAM and JAMES ZOGBY, president of the Arab American Institute.
