Ask anyone who has cared to stick around – the phrase “Christian Quarter” is a misnomer.

“Christians are becoming extinct here; they move to Europe, the US and Canada, and then Muslims move in,” Kevork Kahvedjian, a lifelong resident of the Christian Quarter, says as he gestures to the streets outside his shop. “The name is Christian Quarter, but it’s more or less the Muslim Quarter.”
