The best Christian minds and most Nationalists in the Middle-East have been forced to emigrate

Note: The author of this post Sami Ayoubi claims that the Christians in the Middle-East, from Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Iraq, have emigrated Not because of religious persecutions of other Islamic sects, but because they preferred to live in a Western cultural environment.

I beg to differ, Not on account of preference of cultural settings, but because persecutions of the Ottoman Empire in all this region and the purposeful famine it imposed during WW1 have pressured many to immigrate to USA and Latin America and Africa.

Currently, the immigrants to Africa and Latin America of Muslims, during Lebanon civil war and after was much greater than Christians. During the civil war in Lebanon (1975-1990) and the latest civil war in Syria that started in 2011 forced many educated graduates to emigrate.

ISIS slaughter-hood in this region targeted far more Sunni Muslims than other sects and this savage extremist religious “State” exacerbated the immigration process to all out of shear fear.

We must consider the proportions of immigrants according to religious sect and the education level, especially those who graduated from private universities that have links to colonial powers universities for easier transfer of the minds.

Note 2: Christian emigrants from Palestine has reached a critical level due to apartheid Israelis policies of forcing them out of Jerusalem and the prosperous Palestinian towns and cities

تناقص المسيحين من الشرق

جبران خليل جبران، وميخائيل نعيمة، وإيليا أبو ماضي، ونسيب عريضة، ورشيد أيوب، وعبد المسيح حداد، وندرة حداد، وليث سعيد اغريب، وأمين مشرق، ووديع ياحوط. و ميشيل نعمان معلوف، وفوزي المعلوف، ورشيد سليم، وشفيق المعلوف، وإلياس فرحات، وعقل الجر، وشكر الله الجر، وجرجس كرم، وتوفيق قربان، واسكندر كرباج، ونضير زيتون، ومهدي سكافي، وعمر عبيد، وسلمى صائغ، ويارا الشلهوب أمين الريحاني، ونعمة الله حاج، وآخرون.
… ..
انهم من أفضل الادباء والشعراء 
اني احبهم واحترمهم وافخر بهم
هؤلاء العقول العربية المسيحية هاجرت من وطنها ..لبنان وسوريا الى اوريا وامريكا الجنوبية والشمالية .

هاجروا اوائل القرن التاسع عشر ..وعاشوا هناك وفي قلوبهم حنين وحب لوطنهم الام ..هذا الحنين عبروا عنه شعرا بديعا وادبا رفيعا وبلغتهم الام وهي اللغة العربية .
دافعوا عن قضايا امتهم وحاولوا قدر ما استطاعوا مساعدة ابناء وطنهم .

انظروا ايها السادة ..انها اسماء عربية ..لم يجبرهم احد ان يسموا انفسهم بها
لاحظوا انه هاجروا مع انكفاء الدولة العثمانية وقدوم دول الاستعمار ..اي لم يهاجروا تحت ضغط ديني او مذهبي
وانتبهوا انهم هاجروا ولم يعودا ..ولو عادوا لزادوا عدد المسيحين افرادا كثيرة

واعلموا احبتي انهم كتبوا كثيرا بحب بلادهم الام وحنينهم الى اهلها ولم نسمع منهم كلمات حاقدة او شامتة او مفرقة .
ما اردت قوله ..ان المسيحين في بلادنا هم نخبة متعلمة وذات اخلاق رفيعة ..
والوطن بحاجة لهم وهم احد خيوط نسيجه الجميل .

لكن حدث وان هاجروا ..
اريد ان اقول اني قرات دراسة تتحدث عن اسباب تناقص المسيحين في السرق الاوسط… شملت هذه الدراسة .سوريا ولبنان وتركيا والعراق وفلسطين والاردن .
اعطت بعض الارقام ..وعلق بذهني ان نسبة المسيحين في الشرق الاوسط كانت عام 1914 هي تفوق 14% من عدد سكان المنطقة

وفي عام 2014… قلت لتكون ما يقارب 4%

اذا يقل عدد المسحين بوجود دول غربية مسيحية حاكمة للمنطقة فتخرج تلك الدول ليليها حكومات علمانية .
اذا لا وجود للعامل الديني دور هنا بالهجرة .
وعليه فان تناقص اعداد المسيحين انما جاء من
ميل الشباب المسيحي للهجرة اكثر من ميل المسلم .
وكذلك الثقافة الخاصة بالنسل ..

فالمسلم يملك ثقافة تحضه على الزيادة وعلى عكسه تماما المسيحي .
وهكذا حدث هذا الفرق


Top of British society is a racket for the privileged

Judges sit in the House of Lords

Much of the upper crust of British society is a racket for the privileged in defiance of the democratic wishes of the majority.

That really is the core of Elitist Britain, that while 95% of Britons believe “in a fair society every person should have an equal opportunity to get ahead”, the figures in a government report published on Thursday reveal an ingrained unfairness.

Only 7% in Britain are privately educated.

And yet this section of society makes up 71% of senior judges, 62% of the senior armed forces and 55% of permanent secretaries.

It is quite something when the “cabinet of millionaires” is one of the less unrepresentative pillars of power, with 36% hailing from private schools.

The statistics should provoke Britain’s media into a prolonged period of self-reflection.

They probably won’t since 54% of the top 100 media professionals went to private schools, and just 16% attended a comprehensive school – in a country where 88% attend non-selective state schools.

43% of newspaper columnists had parents rich enough to send them to fee-paying schools.

In the case of the media this has much to do with:

1. The decline of the local newspapers that offered a way in for the aspiring journalist with a non-gilded background.

2. The growing importance of costly post-graduate qualifications that are beyond the bank accounts of most; and

3. The explosion of unpaid internships, which discriminate on the basis of whether you are prosperous enough to work for free, rather than whether you are talented.

Why does the unfairness highlighted by the report matter?

As it points out, elitism leaves “leading institutions less informed, less representative and, ultimately, less credible than they should be”.

They focus “on issues that are of salience only to a minority but not the majority in society”.

If there are so few journalists and politicians who have experienced, say, low wages or a struggle for affordable home, then the media and political elite will be less likely to deal with these issues adequately.

Instead, they will reflect the prejudices, assumptions and experiences of the uber-privileged.

The flaw with the report is an implicit assumption that inequality is not the problem, but rather that our current inequality is not a fair distribution of talents.

If only a few bright sparks from humble backgrounds could be scraped into the higher echelons,” seems to be the plea.

Certainly Britain is in desperate need of radical measures to ensure all can realise their aspirations, including the banning of unpaid internships, the scrapping of charitable status for private schools, investment in early-years education, and dealing with issues such as overcrowded homes that stifle educational attainment.

But surely Britain’s chronically unequal distribution of wealth and power has to be tackled too.
