You would have thought that a bomb attack by Islamists on Christians at Easter, in the wake of similar attacks at Christmas, might attract headline news. But no. Even in the quality broadsheet (London) Daily Telegraph it only featured deep inside and a smallish item mid-page. Cannot recall seeing it at all on BBC TV or Sky where the usual introverted political froth bubbled away eg alleged racist remarks by police officers. The indifference of our culture to persecution of Christians in Africa and the Middle East is baffling.

Thanks to T19 for keeping these stories before our eyes. Christmas and Easter have long been the most dangerous days of the year for Christians. With Orthodox Easter this coming weekend, we ought all remember to pray for Orthodox Christians in the Middle East, easter Europe and the Horn of Africa.

#1: not ‘our culture’ but the self-appointed holders of the key in ‘the meeja’. No surprise that the BBC chooses to ignore it - much more concerned with whipping up support for the Syrian uprising. Why? Part of the Muslim narrative?
