Gaza City, Jan 14, 2020 / 00:47 am
With fewer than 1,000 Christians in a population of 1.8 million, the Christian population in Palestine's Gaza Strip today is less than half of what it was 10 years ago.
"They are -- of all the Christian groups in the Holy Land -- certainly by far the group that's facing the most difficulty," Robert Nicholson, president and founder of the Philos Project, told CNA.
Nicholson is currently leading an initiative to help Gazan Christians. He insists the world does not need to wait for a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to help the dwindling Palestinian Christian population.
"Christians are often forgotten in this conflict," he said. "They are really caught between forces that are much bigger than them … They're looking for stability, they're looking for freedom."
