Very few Western church leaders understand the Middle East as well as Canon Andrew White. Also known as the ‘vicar of Baghdad’, Andrew White has intimate knowledge of the difficulties of living for Jesus Christ in a majority Muslim region. Not only this, he has a unique understanding of the complexities of the Middle East peace process and the animosity towards the Jews from surrounding nations and the world at large.
We have blogged before on the flagrant bias against Israel demonstrated by many international ‘peacekeeping’ bodies such as the UN which do little to conceal their obsession against the only democracy in the Middle East – they appear to… Continue reading
The Bible believing Christian has many reasons to be confident in their faith – however, there is one that defies any rebuttal. This is the refusal of Christian converts to recant their faith and go to their deaths as a direct result of their testimony.

Many have now been injured or killed in this escalating situation, including a Sky News cameraman, who was shot.
