The problems of Middle Eastern Christians are sometimes not discussed forthrightly, in part because of the anti-Muslim hysteria that frequently attends the topic in the Western media. In many ways, the problems of Christians are everyone’s problems—dispossession for Palestinians, autocratic rule for Egyptians and Syrians, war and sanctions for Iraqis, to list a few.
