In Egypt, whether the new junta that holds sway now, or it they are repalced, the Copts will still find it a hard go to survive in a world where Islamic activism seems to be growing. In Syria, the Christian minority that has wavered between supporting Assad, and the opposition will get it either way they chose. Then too, who says Islam is the wave of anything, but suppression of freedoms and keeping their populations from moving on into the twentieth century. Yeah, a force that supresses "its own" is hardly a good example of a group that is at a disadvantage. In any case, relative to the rest of the Middle Ease, the circumstances of the Palestinian Arab Israeli is far better than the rest of Arab world in all the indicators. So it's not the best, but . . . be thankful for small favors.
