Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: History supports me

Hi Debanjan,

History supports your contention that Genghis Khan's Mongol armies were Christian? Really? Who was their patron saint? Please cite your sources.

History supports your contention that secular democracy is favored by Arabs? Too bad you forgot my simple request to list the secular democracies that currently exist in the Arab world. The list must be a long one, given that secular democracy is favored by Arabs. BTW, what's the Arabic word for democracy?

"Since the birth of Israel has anyone seen any Arab minister in Israel?"

Yes, actually, starting with Raleb Majadele in 2007.

Does anyone ever see even a Jewish resident of Syria? A Jewish resident of Gaza? Jordan? Saudi Arabia?

Israelis have been loudly arguing among themselves for their entire history. I'm not that worried (nor, like you, already celebrating their destruction). Israelis seem able to effectively unite each time their democracy-loving neighbors attempt once again to "push the Jews into the sea."

P.S. Good news, Debanjan, your heroine of the century, Chelsea Manning, one of the "greats of Western civilization" who has made "epoch shattering contributions," has written a book that will release soon. You can pre-order at Penguin Books. Enjoy!
