The there was this nutbag in 2012, but interestingly enough, I am not sure Muslims protested this outrageous statement:

Well since this article covers Middle Eastern Muslims who converted to Christianity, most Muslims in the ME are not going to react to it since they know where the influx of cash comes from (the Christianity of Europe is not the same as the Christianity of the ME, but do send a load of cash and arms to Muslims to look the other way).

I never thought of it that way. But I suspect you are right. I noticed in Saudi that in spite of the laws some Christian denominations operated quite openly and freely.

Which Saudi are you talking about?

Saudi Arabia Declares Destruction of All Churches in Region

Destroy all churches in the Arabian Peninsula ? Saudi Grand Mufti ? RT News

Will Saudi Arabia finally allow a church on its soil? - Beliefnet.com

What are you basing that opinion on?

Possibly my on the ground facts since I work in the region and have been to Saudi Arabia instead of media that tends to over blow situations out of proportion and over sensationalize topics. And I'm not even a Muslim.

As to your links, the first is Christian from 4/1/2013 so we know how it leaned, the second one from 3/16/2012 is Russian who sides with Iran so we know how that one leaned, and the third one is fake that they probably picked up from another website. Its actual article from 2/25/2014 is below:

Church linky

On my own experiences in the region, although that was a long time ago and on online conversations with my NON-MUSLIM friend Pruzhany who visits the region quite often.
