Well said, Yuval

Reader comment on item: Mosque in Cordoba, Church in Damascus
in response to reader comment: How about the temple mount

I rarely hear people mention the need for Muslims to be reciprocal with Jews as well as Christians. What is happening now to Christians is just an extension of the massive hate directed for centuries at Jews. If Christians had stood for the Jews in Middle Eastern countries while they were becoming juden rein, there would be others there now able to support them. I'm sure all readers here have read Niemoller's poem:

When the Nazis came for the communists,
I remained silent;
I was not a communist.

When they locked up the social democrats,
I remained silent;
I was not a social democrat.

When they came for the trade unionists,

I did not speak out;
I was not a trade unionist.

When they came for me,
there was no one left to speak out.

Well, Christians better stand up for Jews in much greater numbers than they are, and Jews better stand up for Christians, or we will all fall to the Muslims.
