    You might be surprised how many people believe the Christian Coalition is just as dangerous as the Muslim Brotherhood.

    In the current social conditions of areas with a Christian majority; Christianity is practically harmless.

    Agreed. I would be more concerned about social agendas versus a new crusade.

    They certainly didn't win California in a peace negotiation led by Hamas.

    This paper is a nonsensical sophistry that conveniently avoids any revealing details, or, more importantly, the real context.

    For instance:

    (1) the fact that there had been a war triggered by the Palestinians (who refused the UN proposal of a bi-national federation), a war that Jews weren't supposed to win (since they were considered to be the underdogs, then),

    (2) that Jews too were expelled and had nowhere to go if they wanted to survive (unlike the Arabs). As a matter of fact, there were far more Jewish refugees than Arab ones, and what would become Israel was then considerably poorer than its Arab neighbours.

    (3) that a lot of Arabs had the opportunity to live peacefully as Israeli citizens, and that today they represent almost 20% of the current population. There never was such a thing like ethnic cleansing, since Israel is not based on any kind of racist Ideology, despite the dubious comparisons used.
    On the other hand the Arab countries ruthlessly cleansed their Jews and any foreigner during that period.

    Agreed, especially under contemporary interpretations of fundamentalist Christianity (unlike medieval Catholicism, which was worse than Islamism); a surprising number of people think otherwise, raising concerns about "Christian fascism" or "Christianism," and likening fundamentalist Christians to the Taliban.
