    Arab Christians moving from Muslim communities

    “The Christians don’t want to be around Muslims,” Mr. Abi Haydar said. “They just want to stay away from them.”

    Sterling Heights, Mich. - Mich. — Arab Christians here are trying to separate themselves from a boisterous Muslim community that has served as a punching bag for “terrorism” stereotypes since Sept. 11.

    Many have moved to Detroit’s northern suburbs — Sterling Heights, Madison Heights, Farmington Hills and the Bloomfield areas — to get away from the high concentration of Muslims in Dearborn, said Pastor Haytham Abi Haydar of Arabic Fellowship Alliance Church.

    Other Christians, he said, have turned their backs on their Arab heritage and integrated with American culture.
    (Snip)
    Still, there are many pastors and churchgoers who assume that all Arab Christians are converts from Islam, when, in fact, many have been Christians all their lives.

    Syrian Protesters Killed; Christians, Muslims Clash in Egypt

    In Egypt, where former President Hosni Mubarak was ousted in February, 11 people were killed and 150 injured yesterday in clashes between Christians and Muslims in Cairo, Al Jazeera television reported. The army was later deployed on city streets to stop the violence that was sparked by reports of a romance between a Coptic Christian and a Muslim, it said.

    Megi, do you purposely make titles just to get people to open your threads? Because I read that entire article and is talked about Michigan, which is hardly a gulf state. I don't understand your logic.

    Maybe he confused the Great Lakes with the Gulf of Mexico.

    It's doubtful he did it. It's probably just a cut and paste from FR.
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.

    I am well aware of that.The reason they are here is that they are facing persecution and death if they remain in their own countries.It isn't so much that America is the land of greater opertunity but rather America offers them a place to worship their GOD and not be killed.

    Islam is rampant and intollerant throughout the middle east and they burn Christian churches and rape and murder non Islamics .
    "There were once about 1.5 million Christians in Iraq, but more than two-thirds are believed to have fled since the US-led invasion in 2003. Hundreds of families have also moved to the northern Kurdish region.

    Maybe he was thinking "golf states"?
    There are an awful lot of Muslims in California as well and California and Michigan are #2 and 3 in number of courses.

    The areas they are talking about are areas in which a lot of immigrants live, not just those from the middle east. There are a lot of Vietnamese americans in Madison Heights, there has been a strong community of coptics and chaldeans in Sterling Heights for over 20 years, and there are some big churches that work in those areas. There are a few mosques, but it isn't like East Dearborn, where there is almost a mosque on every corner.
