About 4%, so around average for an Asian country (higher than say Thailand or Japan but maybe similar to China, India).

This happened in Egypt not in the Holy Land.

Well Sinai near the Egypt-Israel border. I consider the Sinai area really an extension of the 'Holy Land' anyway, it includes Mount Sinai and the Sinai desert where the Israelites wondered in the desert in Genesis and Exodus.

Israel is part of Asia and Egypt is part of Africa and the Sinai is part of Egypt and not the Holy Land.

Actually technically the Sinai is part of Asia, so Egypt is in two continents.

Anyway no need to be pedantic about it...in my previous post about not going to the Holy Land I was talking about Israel anyway, not Egypt.

Christianity helped their suffering through the Japanese occupation. Buddhism doesn't really have the sense of community.

Some people like their opiates.

Although I don't think it worked out that well for the Philippines. Catholicism probably hampered their economic development. Adam Smith stated in the wealth of nations that the church and the crown always got in the way of trade in the spanish colonies.

I've heard that said about Latin America and Southern Europe too.
