Where is this story in the media

Even with the extensive coverage that the Lebanese side got this summer during the conflict, I never heard a bit about the suffering of this group.
Christians, mostly Maronite Catholics, now make up only 40% of the population of Lebanon.  The middle-eastern country once boasted a majority Christian population, but is now being increasingly populated by Muslims, including Shiites who are represented, in large part by, militant group Hezbollah.
So send some prayers to our brethren who are truly suffering.  There is much to hope for and the leadership sounds strong.
Archbishop Chucrallah-Nabil El-Hage of Tyre said, “The most important thing is to stay in this land” despite other daily problems, such as unemployment, that Christians face amidst a Muslim majority.
