Christians in the Caliphate
- Consider St. John of Damascus who served the Islamic caliphate as a government official and translator. He was able along with the monks of the Palestinian desert to actually write apologetics against Islam under an Islamic regime! He wasn’t executed. Others like Anthony of Baghdad were able to do the same.
There is Father Zakaria (Zakaria Botros) of Al hayat TV in Egypt. Of course, he faces much opposition and Gneisenau is right "that many Muslims are just as throughly modern" and "share more in common with 20th ideologies than with early Islam."
