Listen HERE

Peter Bahlawanian is the producer of director/writer/editor Mariam Avetisyan’s The Desire to Live.

    1. That’s true. With all the Zionist hoopla about “(Muslim) persecution of Christians,” most of which is BS, you’d think they’d latch on to this issue, which is completely legitimate.
