Last week Tunisia grabbed headlines following two suicide bombings. ISIS has since claimed responsibility for both attacks. However, this unrest is not new. Rex Rogers with SAT-7, a satellite TV ministry to the Middle East and North Africa, cues us in on the topic.

“What we try to do is broadcast Christian teaching in terms of love and respect for human beings in terms of the ability to accept people different from yourself.
