How Many of These Do You Find in Arab Countries?
Today I went to the Old City of Jerusalem with family. Just outside of Sha'ar Yaffo, the Jaffa Gate were lots of tables with colorful awnings. They are all decorated for Xmas. Christians here in Israel are given lots of freedom of worship.
I also noticed the variety of religious items on display at the various stores in the Arab Market of the Old City.
Yes, Jewish and Christian items share the shelves in many of the stores. You certainly won't find this sort of display in an Arab country.
So, where, in which country in the Middle East do people of all religions have the opportunity supported by law to practice their religion without persecution?
