In this article, the author describes how Christians tend to respond to the fear of becoming a minority (dhimmis) in the context of Islam. It seems that there are only two options—fight (if necessary with weapons) or flight (literally or mentally). Several questions can be raised about either approach and neither guarantees survival. The question is whether an alternative approach can be outlined. The author takes his starting point for such an approach in the strength of the Christian community, and he describes a number of characteristics of such a community.
