William Dalrymple
Summary
Article summary: 

Text of lecture about a declining Christianity in the Middle East. Dalrymple compares between his travels in the mid nineties to when he collected material for his book ‘From the Holy Mountain: A Journey among the Christians of the Middle East,’ and recently travelled to the areas he had visited ten years earlier. Dalrymple concludes “When I started this journey, I had imagined that it would be quite a simple story of fundamentalist Muslim persecution of Christians.  Now one of the most interesting things I found on this journey was the fact that this was the case almost nowhere.  The situation, as so often in the Middle East, is far more complex than it appears when viewed from the distance of London or Washington.  The situations in almost all cases turned out to be far more complex than one would imagine, and the rights and wrongs to be very different than the ones they seem from the distance.”
