Coptic Christians in the Middle East are dwindling after years of persecution.
The book, “The Body And The Blood”,by Charles Sennott, documents the ongoing
plight of Coptic Christians. Years of steady persecution have taken their toll
on the Coptic communities from Iraq to Egypt. Through violet terrorist acts, to
segregation, they had managed, but now their numbers in the Middle East are
shrinking.Copts from the Middle East are migrating away to more tolerant
locations where they can go about their daily lives, and spiritual lives in peace.
- Last week, Christians in Egypt were going to pray, and ISIS gunman attacked them.
- This is nothing new. The coptic christians have been being persecuted for many many many years.
- Many Christians in the Middle East believe the time for Christians is over for them. They believe that soon there will be no Christianity in the Middle East.
“As journalist Charles Sennott wrote back in 2001 in his book “The Body And The Blood,” persecution and emigration have steadily diminished the numbers of Christians in Egypt and in nearly all of the Middle East.”
