Puzzling that so little is spoken of this

Reader comment on item: Religious Minorities in an increasingly intolerant Middle East

Submitted by stanley b (United States), Mar 16, 2012 at 16:13

It is distressing that Christian minorities in Muslim countries continue in this day and age to suffer as they do (of course there are no Jews left to be persecuted except for a few scattered here and there). The mentality of the news media is perhaps that of identifying with the underdog. And outrageously, the poor underdog has become the Muslims, no matter how many billions in reality, or how much of a majority in a country. Similarly, Christians are always perceived as a majority, no matter what the reality is because of the historical slant of the white man and slavery. It is a tragedy that there is such blindness and political partisanship. Christians being attacked does simply not fit the narrative and so will not be addressed.
