    As Islamist extremism grows, Christian existence in Palestinian territory is disappearing at an alarming rate, warns a distinguished scholar and international human rights lawyer. During a discussion last week about the preservation of the 2,000-year-old Palestinian Christian community, Dr Justus Weiner, a Scholar in Residence at the Jerusalem Centre for Public Affairs, shared horrifying stories of Christians being persecuted and tortured by Palestinian authorities. He noted that the population in Bethlehem during the 1940s was estimated to be about 75 to 80 per cent Christian, but now that number has dropped to about 12 per cent. Moreover, the overall Christian population of the whole West Bank has declined to about 1.5 to 1.7 per cent of the total population and is ?practically at the point of disappearing?, Weiner said during the talk at the public policy think tank Hudson Institute on Tuesday.
