New York Times gives detailed, sobering report of the peril of Christianity in the Middle East

The New York Times Magazine has a long and sobering piece by Eliza Griswold July 22, “Is this the end of Christianity in the Middle East?”, link here

I’ve not one to join in public emotional solidarity over persecution about anything. The article gives a long history of the cycling of Christianity and Islam in the Middle East, as well as the concept of the dhimmi. The brutality of the recent invasions by ISIS and the harrowing trials of many Christian families, especially in northern Iraq, are given in detail here.
