We cannot emphasize enough how important it is to pray and work for the safety and preservation of the Christian presence in the Holy Land.

Christian Arabs choose to live here, despite being caught in the middle, and are forced into situations like the one above, simply because of their citizenship.  Why is it important that Christian Arabs remain in the Holy Land?  

Because they are the remnant of Christianity in the land where Christ was born and Christianity began.
