    Found this article through Baptists Today. For me it really struck a cord

    http://www.project-syndicate.org/commentary/the-exodus-of-christians-from-the-arab-world-by-fiorello-provera

    The world I live in is so small. I get upset when I have to wait 10 minutes for something. If the church building is a bit too hot, it was just awful. What a whiny baby I can be. I've done hundreds of funerals, never once had anyone shoot at me. Never been pulled off the street and tortured either.

    It also makes we curious as to why all the talk of save Israel, fight for Israel and nothing for fellow brother's and sister's in Christ who are in perilous conditions?

    Aside from your strawman at the end there I agree.

    Unfortunately, there's only so much we can do with the believers in the countries that are totally hostile to the gospel.

    But it really DOES put things in perspective, doesn't it?

    Not trying to agitate the whole Israel arguments. Just wish we had more balance when the Middle East topic comes up.
