Adherence to Islam, the state religion since the 12th century, is mandatory in order to become a citizen and almost all of the country’s 300,000 people are Muslims. The president of the Maldives has even declared that the island nation has no room for any religion other than Islam.

As the 15-month conflict rages with no end in sight, Syria’s many Christian minorities have come face to face with the emerging threat posed by radical Sunni Islamists. These elements have established themselves as a key factor in Syria’s future, backed by immense political and economic support from the Arab world and indifference from the West.

Christians are constantly abducted and held against their will and occasionally murdered. Christian worker Johannes Hentschel and his wife and 3 children were all abducted in the Yemeni province of Saada. Three other abducted Christians, bible students, were found dead by the Saudis.
