The year has just begun, and already Fox News' Sean Hannity is telling the story of how Christians are being persecuted in the Arab world.
Hannity observed that a holy war may be "brewing" in the Middle East, as he reported on the New Year's Eve bombing of a Christian church in Egypt.
Cliff May, a notorious neoconservative and creator of the Foundation for the Defense of Democracies, was a little more excited about the prediction than Hannity.
"In your intro you said a holy war is brewing," May began. "It is not brewing, it is taking place."
"Christians and other religious and ethnic minorities are being not just discriminated, but persecuted in Egypt and throughout the broader Middle East," he added.
"Do you think we are headed for a modern day religious war in the Middle East?" Hannity asked.
