Copts and Robbers: Can The Remnants of Christianity in Nubia Be Preserved?

 

To its immense credit, the perpetually beleaguered Coptic church of Egypt has seen fit to dedicate some resources to the study of its history.

Nonstate actors of all kinds, most of them armed, are emerging to run their own shows. Generations of mistrust underlie it all.

 

Why Turkey Should Acknowledge the Armenian Genocide?

The centenary of the genocide carried out by the Ottoman government against its minority Armenian population in their historic homeland, which lies in present-day Turkey, will be observed on April 24. The commemorations present an opportunity not only to remember the 1.5 million victims, but also to recognize – and challenge – the Turkish government’s continued denial of the atrocities.
