Alarm Bells in the East: From September 11, 2006

The August 13-20 issue of America commemorates the 40th anniversary of the unification of the Jerusalem following the Six Day War. Over the past few years America has published numerous articles on the conflict in the Middle East. It is a particular concern of our editor in chief, Drew Christiansen, S.J., who served for 13 years as the principal policy adviser to the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops on Mideast affairs. Last year, Fr. Christiansen expressed his anxieties regarding the fate of Christians in the Middle East. "Nothing short of an all-out campaign by the Christian world to protect the Christians of the East stands a chance of saving them," he wrote.
