Christians in the Middle East
Many Christians who live in the Middle East live under sharia law see it as second-class citizenship. Some live peacefully and prosper, others face daily intimidation and are unable to take the best jobs. They have to deal with violence against their places of business.
Many Middle Eastern Christians leave their homelands in search of a more open society. A large number of them end up in the United States. This work- in- progress looked at the ex-patriot Coptic Christian community in the New York/New Jersey area.
It featured interview individuals, groups, and families about their experiences in Egypt and their acclimation to America.
