A Woman on a mission - She is carrying the cross for Christians, Jews and the moderate Muslims who are not able to stand up and speak the truth.
I have very close muslims friends. I trust them with my life. But they are not the majority. Good people, good heart, but like most all of us humans(christians, jews or muslims) they don't speak up when they should. If their religion is being misrepresented, it is their job, not the chrsitians or jews, to work hard to defend it and protect it from the extremists within them.
It is truly as simple as she says, prove her wrong, prove us wrong. Until Saudi Arabia, Iran, Syria and the like countries defend and protect the freedom of Christians and Jews to worship in their countries and preach Jesus and Moses, they have absolutely no leg to stand on when they do little to keep extremists from attacking the Twin towers and our way of lives in America. And to top it of, they still complain that we are being racists and extremists.
The facts do speak for themselves.
The Christians of Lebanon fought to protect their faith and voice in the middle east. Today however, they are very split; some have allegience to Saudi Arabia while others to Hizbollah/Iran. Maybe it is a survival mode, but there was a time when Christians were the few, the good and the undefeated. Not today.
Lebanon is the last Christian country in the Middle East by which its president has to be Christian. It is a Republican form of government. What other country in the "arab world" can claim that. We see what Iran is doing to its people. We saw what Iraq did to its people (irrespective of your view of the war today). We see what Syria does to its people. Yet, they come to America, supposedly to run away from that culture only to impose it on us.

I am amazed
It does not amaze me that someone who was 10 yrs old left a country that has changed so much since is able to write a book that I found to be far from the truth. I lived in Lebanon till 1997 and I am a Christian Lebanese as well even though I hate to differentiate between religions. I felt that the book was written by someone who is paid or eager to gain acceptance by a side that enjoys building more fear and hatred toward the Muslims. The only Muslims that came to Lebanon in 1975 were the Palestinians and some Libians. The Palestinians came due to a natural process that states when you suppress and terrorize people they would migrate. And the only place the Palestinians could migrate to are neighboring countries. I was hoping this book is based on facts but it was the oppositge and part of a propaganda and smudge campaign. I suggest that the writer spends more time reading about the History of the ME so she can enlighten us in the future with a book that shines the light on the true cause of the issues in the Middle East 'part of it, I agree, is extremism'
