“The best way for Christians to respond to the Middle East crisis,” writes Billy Halloway, faith editor for The Blaze news website, “can be summarized in one simple word: Education. Believers should arm themselves with knowledge about the current political and social constructs as well as the region's history, while also keeping up-to-speed on the latest regional developments. While the situation is certainly complex with multiple layers and allegiances that rapidly rise and fall as sociopolitical unrest emerges and subsides, equipping oneself with knowledge is key. Christians should be prepared to discuss the Middle East in all venues with an up-to-date understanding of what's currently unfolding (also, it's easier to pray for something when one understands exactly what he or she is seeking of the Lord). Media outlets and historical sources are the best place to go for more information."
