Christians in the Holyland
Here's an interesting article about Christian communities in Israel and the disputed territories. While the Christian minority in Israel has enjoyed more freedom and prosperity than other Christian communities in the Middle East, the fate of Christians who would live in a predominately Muslim future Palestinian state is not one that I would envy.

Don't expect a 60 Minutes program deveoted to this. If they cannot blame Ariel Sharon's government then why bother?

Funny how the spin goes. Why do the Christians of Greece and Anglicans support Arafat? This was most obvious during Arafat's reign in Lebanon. Hilarion Capucci comes to mind. Why did the media not tell the story of Bethlehem's Christians from the time Arafat got control of the town till October 2000?
Maybe ask Joseph Farah for details.
I suppose that is why joint business deals between Jew and Christian Arabs, such as Maxims restuarant (remember the bombing?) are successful. By the way why didn't the media cover the re-opening of the place and the Christian Arab owner's response?
