Can you honestly say that we were not forced into what you called "christian amber"...
We have been denied the expression of our identity and whom we are for the longest time in all arab countries in one way or another and the only country which was the safe haven for christians to express themselves was and is to some extent today Lebanon and that too regional and international stupidity.
If the arabs of the mid-east didn't treat the chrisitians amongst them as un wanted guests when they are the owners of the land and the rest are the guests,we as christians would have been in a better position but it was always the dream of those arabs to turn any thing that is christian to muslim and that's what prompted christians to hold back even though they are the builders of the golden age of the so called arab civilization which owes a great deal to our people...
Can you show me how the arabs of yester years and of today are recognizing this contribution other than calling us arab christians and further oppressing our existence... Then you come and say christian amber ...
: A statue of Ishtar and other monuments....I was kinda thinking of you when I posted it.
: Unbelievable how our people are so short sighted that they can't see it even when it's under their very noses.
: Our ancestors as great as they were in creating the Sumerian, the Babylonian and the Assyrian Empires were also responsible for the Abassid Empire.
: This last piece of the puzzle will remain a mystery as long as we remain locked in this Christian amber.
