What Will Become of the Middle East’s Christians?
October 30, 2012
In the fall of 2010, a few months before revolution swept the Muslim world, I happened to be in Yemen for work. The trip coincided with the start of the Eid holiday, which provided ample free time to see much of the capital, Sana’a. One afternoon, en route to the hotel from the historic Old City, the driver pointed out the window at a group of men standing on a vacant corner. “Look!” he said with the excitement of happening upon a rarity. “Those are Jews.” They were some distance away, and whatever distinguished them from other Yemeni, I could not see it through the window of an SUV. In the blink of an eye, they were no longer visible.
The Egyptian and Syrian Christians are already seeing the reality first hand. If they will live dhimmi to Islamic leaders then they can stay. Otherwise they will be pushed out or worse. It's a very old pattern after all.....
