Welcome to the site where people concerned about the plight of Middle East Christians can exchange ideas, create a community, and work towards a bold new idea to provide Mideast Christians with dignity and security while correcting a historical injustice: the creation of a Christian state in the Middle East.

BACKGROUND

There are 50 states in the world where Muslims are a majority of the population.

The Middle East and North Africa have about two dozen Muslim-majority states/territories (Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Mauritania, Morocco, Oman, Palestinian Authority/Gaza, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Tunisia, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Yemen).

In the vast majority of these states, Islam is the official state religion.

The land area in the Middle East and North Africa was last measured at about 3.3 million square miles (8.6 million square kilometers) in 2010, according to the World Bank.

In the contiguous land mass comprising the Middle East and North Africa, there is not a single Christian-majority state.

Yet Christianity originated in the Middle East in the 1st century AD and was one of the major religions of the region until the Arab Muslim conquests of the mid-to-late 7th century AD.

Christians now make up 5% of the Mideast population, down from 20% in the early 20th century.

It is estimated that at the present rate, the Middle East’s 12 million Christians will likely drop to 6 million by the year 2020.

The Christians of the Middle East are among the most vulnerable religious minorities on Earth, and face vicious persecution without the political or military power to protect themselves.
