What about minority prejudice against the majority in the Middle East? Lebanese Christian bigotry as an example
In Western media, only Middle East majority prejudice is of interest to them. When Lebanon was ruled by a sectarian Christian anti-Muslim clique, the regime was hailed as a victory for humanity. There is a whole campaign in Lebanon to not sell Christian property to non-Christians and there is nothing about that. I think that there is Western sympathy for such measures because it reminds them of Israeli Zionist prejudices against Muslims and Christians. This add appeared An-Nahar and species that the buyer has to be Christian.
