The persecution of Jesus in the Middle East is no new phenomenon, as saddening as the situation is. Way back in the first century, Christians suffered a great ordeal under the Jews and the Roman Empire. Over the centuries the situation has worsened in different parts of the world, including Union of Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR), Mexico, North Korea, Germany, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and so on.
