He brought Lebanon as an example of muslims and Christians living peacfully together, how annoying this is?. The whole Middle East were Christians, Nastorians and Jews before the invasion of Islam. Dhimmis were given three choices, 1) pay Jizya and live as Dhimmis (in a humalation status), 2) convert to Islam or 3)death.

Hey, don't try to explian Jizya that it is designed to protect Dhimmis and then compare it to Zakkat. Jizya is a humalation tax that Dhimmis had to pay (Sagheroon, i.e in humulation), Dhimmis' were not allowed to ride anything except donkeys and have to ride backword, they had to wear different clothing made of harsh materials, they had to admit the superiority of islam, no bells from churches are allowed, Dhimmi's life worth 1/2 of a muslim life and some other sections of islam it worth fifth of a muslim life, etc etc etc.

A muslim can humulate a Dhimmi, but if Dhimmi defended him herself they will be persecuted as blashemy which is considered a crime that punished by death. A Dhimmi can not be witness nor raise a law case against a muslim.

Mr. Avenger, how about you speak on your behalf and spare the christians who live in muslim countries more pain than what they have. What else do you want from them? they left their homeland just to escape your intimidations and humiliations.

Please speak for yourself and don't volunteer to speak on our behalf.
