Sort of like black conservatives.
Same thing is true for SE Asian Christians. On the UW-Milwaukee Campus the South Korean Christians were the most open and unashamed about their faith.
“As a side benefit, they also get to know which Arabs are unlikely candidates for harboring terrorists.”
This is true, NOW.
Back in the day, the Christian Arabs were actually worse, in that they had to be “on the team against the Jews” with the moslems to prevent themselves from being targets. Logical, if unfortunate.
It has taken the last 50 years or so of being decent humans by Israelis to swing them around -— and then recent experiences in Lebanon, Syria, Eqypt that sealed the deal.
I have a Coptic Christian doctor from Eqypt (who did residency with my wife in the USA) living in my house (with my mom, whom they love because she never lets anyone have a meal without wine — little better than Eqypt!) in Israel that we basically smuggled in during the very recent troubles and finagled a “research” position at a local hospital. Got his immediate family and working on the uncles, aunts, and cousins and a semi-orderly disposal of his assets in Eqypt.
His biggest shock coming to Israel, I think was going to a church without an armed guard, buying a Bible at the equivalent of Barnes & Nobles, and buying beer at a supermarket.
I suspect they are going to ultimately settle in England, but they also love Texas or Utah, oddly enough. The climate is very similar.
