Middle East Review - A Catholic Church Perspective

Dr Harry Hagopian
The 'Arab Awakening' - initially dubbed the 'Arab Spring' - started in Tunisia in December 2010. Since then, those revolutions and popular revolts have already enveloped Egypt, Libya, Syria, Yemen and Bahrain. Today, the whole Middle East North Africa region is in a state of flux - even fear - about the unknown or the unpredictable.

In an extended Middle East Analysis, Dr Harry Hagopian looks back at the major events that took place in the past weeks and analyses both the nature and direction of those changes as well as their impact on the region's people - including the indigenous Christian communities.

It looks at...
The death of Qadhaffi and a new dawn for Libya
Ongoing bloodshed in Syria and its impact on Lebanon and the region as a whole
Israel and Palestine
Post revolution elections in Tunisia and Egypt
