Melhem on "The Twilight of Middle Eastern Christianity."

My old friend Hisham Melhem has written some cogent columns recently for Al-Arabiya, but I particularly want to call your attention to his recent "The twilight of Middle Eastern Christianity."

It's a lament for what the Middle East stands to lose as Christian communities dwindle, illuminated by personal anecdotes (Hisham's background is Lebanese Christian). I considered providing some excerpts but on reflection I think I should just encourage readers to click through and read the whole thing.
