Arab Christians: a persecuted minority?

Christian communities have existed in the Arab world for centuries and make up the religious minority in many countries, such as Jordan, the West Bank, Egypt and Iraq. Already fragile, these groups are increasingly subject to persecution. For many, life is becoming too hard in their native lands and the only option is to leave.

  • Jean MAHER, Copt associations representative in France

  • Dr. Walid PHARES, Senior Fellow at the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, Author of "The Coming Revolution: Struggle for Freedom in the Middle East" (to be published next week in the U.S.)

Programme produced by Diaraye Bah, Perrine Desplats and Yi Song.
