Arab Christians in the Time of ISIS

I came today upon the article below. Christians from Arab countries are fleeing and those remaining, are sometimes discriminated against and of course at other times killed. Israel presents itself, among other things, as a country, where all citizens have equal rights.

I hope that others would learn the importance of being open-minded and accepting minorities!!! In a perfect situation, accepting minorities and respecting them is not a favor, gift, or act of kindness of the majority… It is a right of each citizen to be treated equal under the law! Here in Germany for example, I have quickly and easily noticed how the foreigners are vehemently protected by the state. I wish it existed the same thing in a country like Egypt, where Copts, who are not immigrants, cannot easily have the simple right of building churches. Not to speak of churches being burnt or bombed!
