in response to reader comment: Arab Christians

Submitted by Martin Katchen (United States), Mar 27, 2012 at 19:59

It's hard to generalize about Arab Christians. Often it is a matter of denomination. Maronite Christians (as in Lebanon), who are Roman Catholic, have warm relations with Israel, while Melkite Christians (Eastern Orthodox) tend to be both anti-semitic and anti-zionist, preferring if possible to live under Islam than be part of a Jewish state. There was one Greek Orthodox archbishop who was convicted of aiding terrorists. And then there are the pro-Israel Evangelical Christians, some of whom are converted Muslims.

all the best
