Christian Arabs have been victims of frequent human rights abuses by Muslims.

"There are many examples of intimidation, beatings, land theft, firebombing of churches and other Christian institutions,

denial of employment, economic boycotts, torture, kidnapping, forced marriage, sexual harassment, and extortion," he said.

 PA officials are directly responsible for many of the attacks, and some Muslims who have converted to Christianity

 have been murdered.

"The problems for Christians in Bethlehem are typical throughout the Middle East.

As in Palestinian society, Christian Arabs have no voice and no protection. It is no wonder they have been leaving.

Because of emigration – some of it dating back two or three generations – seventy percent of Christian Arabs

who originally resided in the West Bank and Gaza now live abroad.

Tens of thousands live in Sydney, Berlin, Santiago, Detroit, and Toronto.

The emigration of Christian Arabs has multiplied over the last decade,

with no end in sight.
