On Wednesday, May 8 at 8:00 p.m. EST, TheBlaze’s new, hard-hitting documentary series “For The Record” will take on two sobering human rights issues, beginning with the plight of Christians in the Middle East.  

As Islamists grow in strength under the stewardship of the Muslim Brotherhood, their crusade to purge Egypt of its Coptic Christian community by way of persecution, harassment, rapes, forced conversions and outright slaughter has stepped up its intensity.  

Yet the mainstream media has all but ignored that roughly 100,000 Christian Copts have fled their native land due to the “Arab Spring.”

“For The Record” will feature first-hand accounts from brave men and women inside Egypt who have risked their own lives to shed light on how women are being kidnapped and raped, while children taken from their parents. 

In fact, a mass-exodus of Christians from Islamic countries is currently underway. Coptic Christian Raymond Ibrahim, who chronicles the community’s persecution in his new book, “Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians reported Tuesday that millions of Christians are “being displaced from one end of the Islamic world to the other.”

“We are reliving the true history of how the Islamic world, much of which prior to the Islamic conquests was almost entirely Christian, came into being,” he wrote. 

Even the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom noted that “the flight of Christians out of the region is unprecedented and it’s increasing year by year.”  

It went on to state that “Christians might disappear altogether from Iraq, Afghanistan, and Egypt.”

The first of those countries, Iraq, indeed has seen a drastic decline in its Christian population from roughly one million in 2003 to fewer than 400,000.

This is a result of churches being bombed while Christians are actually beheaded and crucified by Islamists.   

But the persecution of Christians in the Middle East and Maghreb is but one example of horrific human rights abuses. Delving into the matter even further, “For The Record” will also expose the multi-billion dollar human trafficking industry.

As vulnerable minors are forced into sexual slavery, people thought the problem was relegated only to far-off countries with histories of human rights abuses.

New reports, however, reveal that this dark world has even reached the shores of the U.S.

“For The Record” will feature the stories of two young girls who were kidnapped and forced into the sex-trade, providing a sobering account of a struggle few can imagine. 

TheBlaze TV will air an encore of this profound episode on May 12, at 8:00 p.m. EST.
