The Angelus: The Middle East

What are the reasons for conflict in the Middle East and its repercussions in the Western world? How much will immigration destabilize the old continent? These and other related topics frame this issue of our journal. 

Excerpt from the publisher:

The Middle East is the cradle of the Christian Faith. This vast region, including not only Jerusalem but also Damascus and Babylon, is the theater of familiar biblical history. But, for the last 1400 years, it has been overrun by the Quran, which imposes its despotic rule over vast expanses of the Fertile Crescent. If Islam tries to present a soft face to the gullible West, it always reverts to Muhammad’s logic of holy war against and servitude of the “infidels”."
