New York Post June 2nd 2013 : Our Middle Eastern “allies” and foes alike eradicate thousands of years
of Jewish and Christian heritage. Our diplomats treat the persecution as
a minor embarrassment, best ignored. A thousand years ago, there were more Christians in the Middle East than
in Europe, and Jewish communities prospered from the Nile to the
Even a century ago, more than 20% of the region’s population was
Christian, and Jews still adorned Arab cities with their talents. But all they possess does not suffice for Islamist fanatics. Israel

This is an old, old story, nearing its end. We shroud it in lies to
excuse ourselves from taking a stand, even accepting the preposterous
Arab claim that Muslim failures today are the fault of the Crusades, a
brief interlude when Christians occupied a coastal strip hardly larger

classical texts that formed our civilization. That’s utter nonsense. The

composed of illiterates. Conquering at a time when the warring Byzantine
and Persian empires had exhausted themselves, the new rulers found that
tribal practices didn’t suffice to run provinces. So they took over the
existing bureaucracies, staffed by Greek-speaking Christians and Jews.
It was those officials who saved the Greek classics for Europe’s future
Renaissance — and their descendants designed Islam’s greatest monuments.
Yes, some Arab rulers came to value learning — but the Arab world
never produced a Homer, Plato, Sophocles or Thucydides whose appeal
transcended their culture.

Islam was a religion spread by war. It was only a “religion of peace”
where it had conquered. True, Islam sometimes proved more tolerant of
minorities than Europeans, but that was at the zenith of the faith’s
