Genocide - How Christians are being killed and driven out of the Middle East
by John Pontifex, Dublin, 7th April 2016




Principal Findings

  • The Church’s survival in parts of Africa and the Middle East are threatened by religiously motivated ethnic cleansing by extremist Islamist groups.
  • The Church is being driven out of its ancient biblical heartland thanks to a massive exodus - Christianity is on course to disappear from Iraq potentially within five years.
  • Totalitarian regimes such as those in China and North Korea have put Christians under pressure due to the perception that Christianity is linked to the West, seen as corrupt and exploitative by communist states.
