 Dhimmi Watch: Athens opposes 'Arabisation' of Greek Orthodox Church in Jerusalem
What was a survival tactic for Churches (Catholic and Eastern rites) has become over time epitomized by the stockholm syndrome, where the dhimmi identifies with the oppressor, much like Michel Aflaq (once a Christian Arab) did when he joined with a Muslim Arab to create the Ba'ath (Renaissance) Party (Aflaq subsequently converted to Islam).
