""..that were really the case, Russians would not have egged on the Serbs to massacre moslems.""

I say that is not true historically speaking..orelse what about the cgristians that were masacered by the Surbs!! you need to have a multidomentional eye. Russians supported the Serbs because there was a vested interest in former Yugoslavia.

..""All Orthodox churches from Antioch to Georgia to Ukraine and Russia ( including Armenia ) have a history of persecutions by moslems, mainly the Turks and pan-turkic communities""

I say that the berbers of eastern Algerian Rif were persecuted by the Ottomans...they were Muslims..Also The Turkish Ottoman persecuted the Shiites and the Alawites..they are also Muslims..so do you see how your argument has a hole and does not hold water!!

"..Had that really been the case, Armenian holocaust would never have taken place. Why did many Arab christians migrate from Syria to US after the Arab-Israeli war ? Christians and moslems are not exactly kissing .."" etc etc..

Christians , Jews and Muslims suffer(ed) from not the other in religion (except Crusaders and Nazi), but from the other in Power. Nowadays Egyptian American friend government marginalizes the role of the coptic culture..yet this government is secular and American friendly....Moroccan Jews are better treated in Morocco than in Israel..so where does religion come to play?

""..If Jerusalem continues Israeli rule, the wailing wall, Al Aksa, the Church of Nativity and every shrine that belongs to any community will be protected by law of the land. Leave it to moslems and they will knock down everything except the "dome of the rock" into a parking lot. When moslems take over governments, minorities lose most of their rights. I believe that all Christians understand this very well."""..

yeah right..the only people who attacked the church of nativity are the Jewish Extremists..

The Zionist movement has no place for the Christian legacy. The Islamic movement does really..

Arabs say: " if you give a man one river of gold, he will ask for a second one..truly nothing fills the mouth of a man (meaning human) other than the soil where he is burried"

I say: May this comment fill your mouth!

I want you to switch from rational to radical....to the way you perform better..
