As ISIS and other extremists threaten, enslave and kill Christians, is their history in the birthplace of their faith coming to an end?. ‘There is a global war against Christianity’ states Timothy Radcliffe, former master of the order of preachers. According to a Vatican report, 100,000 Christians are martyred every year. Others are harrassed, raped or attacked, and subjected to forced displacement and the destruction of their places of worship.. Nowhere is the problem more severe than in the Middle East.
