Illustration of Christian Persecutions from The Daily Mail: 2019.05.02.

245 Million Christians are persecuted, in 50 countries - in more countries than any other religious group. They have been attacked by extremist groups in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Nigeria, Philippines, as well as in India and China. That's not even counting the Easter Sunday massacre in Sri Lanka. This has extinguished their populations in many areas, and in other, put them on the verge of extinction.

  • Christians in Palestine represent less than 1.5% of the population
  • In Iraq they had fallen from 1.5 million before 2003 to less than 120,000 in 2019
