Damning and timely, this short, accessible book focuses on the plight of modern-day Christians in the Middle East. I strongly recommend this book to anyone who wants to know what our culture turns a blind eye towards and our Western media so often, and dangerously, neglects to report.

Ed West writes of one of the greatest tragedies of the age - the persecution of Christians in the Middle East. Countless thousands are being driven from their homes where their communities have lived for centuries, with many being killed. However the governments of the West say and do absolutely nothing. The Silence of our Friends indeed! This is a book that will upset and make you angry. Let's hope that enough people get its message and prompt Government not to be silent any more.

This important book terms the very depressing recent history of the Christians in the middle east. Whether you are religion or not, we all need to have freedom of thought and beliefs, and this book reveals the great threat to this liberty

Ignored by the mainstream media the systematic destruction of the ancient Christian communities of the Middle East cries out for attention by all who care for human civilisation. It makes a harrowing and heartrending read. "Democratic" western governments and certain leaders past and present ought to feel shame.

We hear occasional reports of the more eye-catching attacks upon Christians in the Middle East, but this shows succinctly how much greater the problem is. For such a short book, it also does a pretty good job of giving a bit of historical context. Recent Western intervention has clearly exacerbated the situation, but may be accelerating an exodus that has been underway for a century. Thankfully, West doesn't neglect the persecution of other religious minorities in the region too. I'm ashamed to say that I didn't even know that 796 Yazidis had been killed in the second worst terrorist attack in history.

West tries to blame our ignorance on the Left's supposed domination of broadcast media, but our press hasn't shown much interest either. The demise of religious minorities throughout the Middle East is a tragedy unfolding before our eyes; or it would be if we were looking.

The plight of Christians in the Middle East is something that the Western media seem not to be very interested in and Ed West is to be congratulated on raising the issue in this fascinating book. The so called Arab Spring and the continuing conflict in Iraq have been disastrous for Christians and no one seems to want to talk about it - not even Western Christians. It is ironic that Western liberals can be so touchy about any perceived failure on our part to be sufficiently respectful of religious minorities in our countries (minorities who have the luxury of concerning themselves with hurt feelings) and so indifferent to the persecution and murder of Christians in the Middle East. If a non-Christian minority in a Christian country were being treated in this way, there would be outrage.

As a western Christian living in the Middle East, I can not speak highly enough about this book.

He has successfully captured all the main points using plain and frank language which makes it accessible to anyone.

Please read this - it is today's untold story.

Please read it and tell others in your churches what is going on.

Thank you.

A short, sharp read which highlights the hypocrisy and tendency of western Christendom to bend over backwards for Islam while ignoring the extinction of their faith in the Middle East at the hands of militant Islamism. As Mr West points out, a reluctance to defend their brothers and sisters in the Middle East will result in the Islamists escalating their militancy.
