Khalid Jabara murder in Tulsa, OK

Did anyone hear about the murder of Khalid Jabara, a Lebanese Orthodox Christian man, by his neighbor who had previously called him a 'dirty Arab' numerous times?

I fear with the rise of Daesh/ISIL, violence against innocent Arabs, some of whom are our brethren in Christ (though I get that Orthodox Christianity can be a bit hard for Evangelicals to wrap their minds around sometimes It's...a bit of a head trip) is only going to get worse.

I think you are correct.

The body of the nation will continue to securitise in ways, as well, that will cause portions of the population to auto-immunise within their geographical borders. Self-destruction.

On evangelicals and Orthodox Christianity: most do not even know it is a thing that exists. I didn't for a long time. Not until later on in University. This is the way of the world.

I think you're right. And I don't think we're immune to it up north of the 49th parallel, either. We just had a terrorist standoff in London, Ontario, in which thankfully no one was killed but Daesh claimed responsibility.

I have a bunch of friends from the Middle East. Some of them (most) are Arab Christians - Orthodox like Mr. Jabbara was. Some are Muslims. All are excellent people.

Through the prayers of our holy brothers and sisters, Lord Jesus Christ our true God, have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
