Dear Dr. Pipes

Reader comment on item: Dhimmis No More
in response to reader comment: Christian population declines

Submitted by Debanjan Banerjee (India), Jan 1, 2018 at 01:18

Wish you a happy and prosperous 2018 to you and your families.

I believe the worst is over for the Christians in the Levant.

Just recently the Christians in Aleppo and Damascus celebrated Christmas under the protection of Hezbollah and Syrian Arab Republic. Christians in Mosul also did the same under the protection of the popular resistance volunteers.

I believe Christian exodus in the region can be controlled and in fact reversed provided Iran and Hezbollah do play the same hegemonic role that US/Israel/Saudi Arabia currently plays. As long as there is any Western presence in the region, the problem for Christians starts.

I believe the region's violence occurs due to the hegemonic role played by US/Israel/Saudi Arabia in the region who creates and nurtures genocidal groups like IS. Dr. Pipes personally supported the creation of these groups like IS to checkmate Iran and it was these support that encouraged IS to did those wrongs against Christians.

I challenge the writer to document this statement, for I never supported the monstrosity that is ISIS.
