Arabs should not fear retaliation by Christians

Reader comment on item: Obama vs Netanyahu, Round Three
in response to reader comment: Risk Of Conflict Rise

I can see where some Arabs may think this. How people think is highly influenced by where they get their information. Do not forget that the tyrants that now rule many Arab countries are using the USA and other "Christian" countries to be the bad guy. By doing this they divert attention away from their own horrible statistics on human rights. During the Cold War the World was asked to pick between USSR and USA. Some did, some remained neutral. From what I can tell this did not accomplish much except to make arms dealers wealthy and spread weapons all over. Christian Countries are not out to fight Arabs but as with Egypt and Libya, most will support the growth of Democracy unless the quest for democracy is hijacked by extreme interests as was done in Iran.
