Ramzy Baroud discusses the often-forgotten Palestinian Christian minority, which faces all the same problems at the hands of their Israeli occupiers that the Palestinian Muslims do. People in the U.S. are often surprised to learn how many Christians there are in Palestine, but Baroud reminds us that this is the oldest Christian region in the world, and once had a huge population of practicing Christians. Today that population is dwindling as they are either forced out of their land, or leave voluntarily in response to Israeli hostility, never to return. Baroud dispels the rumors that Christians are leaving due to tensions with the Palestinian Muslims, alongside whom they have thrived for generations.
