Religious Freedom in The Middle East

For peace to be obtained religious freedom and the ability for members of different religions to coexist peacefully is necessary. Religious freedom is a global concern yet more people are persecuted for their faith now than at any other time in history.  Nowhere are threats to religious communities more visible than in the Middle East. This lack of religious freedom has led to persecution and the genocide of religious minorities. In some countries in the Middle East, religious freedom simply does not exist. Others, like Turkey, were once mainly Christian, but due to persecution and genocide, Christians are now a tiny minority.  Christian communities may not have full legal status and Christians may face restrictions on their ability to own property.

To Many Refugees, Starvation Is a Bigger Threat Than COVID-19.

Refugees are already at risk for starvation, but due to COVID-19, they are at an even higher risk. In normal circumstances, starving is a constant worry for refugees. Refugee camps rarely have enough resources.  Now, COVID-19 lockdowns and restrictions have worsened the already horrible living conditions in these camps, putting thousands of refugees around the world at risk of starvation. In some camps, such as Jordan’s Zaatari and Azraq refugee camps, lockdowns have prevented people from working at jobs outside […]

COVID-19 Aids ISIS

COVID-19 has created suffering across the world but has helped one group. The Islamic State militant group (ISIS) has used the virus to its advantage as it seeks to increase its hold in the Middle East. Christians in the Middle East have faced decades of persecution.  Recently, ISIS has been their main persecutor, with its attempts to annihilate the Christian and Yazidis communities. ISIS moved rapidly a half-decade ago, taking town after town.  Gains have been made against ISIS in […]
