Important Conference - The Persecuted Church: Christian Believers in Peril in the Middle East
Recent attacks against churches in Iraq and Egypt demonstrate that Christianity faces an uncertain future in the Middle East. This one-day conference will bring together representatives from the Christian communities in Lebanon, Iraq and Egypt to speak about the day-to-day threats faced by Christians in the Middle East. Activists serving the persecuted church in Muslim-majority countries will describe their efforts to promote human rights in the Middle East.
Speakers include: Raymond Ibrahim, author of The Al Qaeda Reader. Of Coptic descent, Mr. Ibrahim is fluent in Arabic.
Juliana Taimoorazy, Executive Director of the Iraqi Christian Relief Council
Richard Landes, Associate Professor of History at Boston University and Director and co-founder of the Center of Millennial Studies at Boston University
