Crisis in the Middle East: A Video Newscast

Do you know what’s going in the Middle East right now?

Ancient Christian communities are being driven from their homes, churches desecrated and destroyed, hundreds of men, women, and children killed — some even publically executed in brutal fashion for their faith.

In this videocast, we feature two stories: one from Gaza, where the local Greek Orthodox Church is providing a safe haven to Palestinian Muslims in danger from Israeli rockets; and a second story from Iraq, where Islamist extremists pose an existential threat to Christianity’s survival in and around Mosul.

Please be advised: in the story from Iraq, there are very graphic images of the violence being inflicted upon our fellow Christians. But there is truly a crisis in the Middle East right now, and the truth deserves to be told.
