#1 received death threats after voicing opposition to the recruitment of Christians

I guess, some ME Christians get it.

#2 RandomJD, this article is in further answer to a question you asked some time ago. It is not that I've forgotten, merely that I am moving slowly.

#5 Zhang, I gather that dhimmi status roughly means that if you play the ruler's game and look lowly enough, they protect you from the rest of the Muslims. Or something like that.

It's rather more along the lines of "straying from the plantation", akin to the reaction of blacks and latinos when someone from their respective community "goes white". In this case substitute 'arab' for the two groups.

#7 Of course, Christians in the West Bank must be very, very quiet. A religious souvenir shop in Bethlehem has no signs announcing what it is. Tourist buses go in, the tourists enter the shop, and go out - quietly.
