Syrian Christians Are Fearful Of Muslim Uprising

I have a friend that is a Eastern Orthodox Christian from Syria. The other day we talked about the effects this uprising might have on non-Muslims in Syria. She is fearful of what effect this Muslim uprising will have on the freedoms of the Syrian people. She told me, "Christians in Syria are not as safe as they used to be". "Syria used to be safe for all religions, but so was Egypt". "My family in Syria are hiding their crosses". I could see the pain in her eyes as she told me her fears of radical Muslim. Democracy may have started many of the revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa, but radical Islam has taken control and we all know what happens to a free nation once Islam and Sharia take hold. Islam has made it clear that all religions are the enemy of Islam. Sharia is the antithesis of freedom.

It seems that many in the Middle East blame Obama for this uprising. It is common knowlege in the Middle East that the Obama adminitration has been pushing from the bottom up and the top down to destabalize the Middle East. What are your thoughts on this?
