The same discriminatory view was prevalent against Jews in the south during the 30s and 40s. Now that Jews have prospered, the mantra going around is Judeo-Christian culture. This, however, was not always true, and historically Jews have been much abused in Christian lands.

Who is to say 50-100 years from now the same would happen/or not to Buddhist, Hindu or even Muslim - Christian culture.
