Ibrahim Hooper, a spokesman for the Council on American-Islamic relations, claims that “there are lots of Christian churches and synagogues in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Turkey, Jordan, Indonesia, Qatar, Kuwait. … If you go to any number of so-called Muslim countries you will see thriving Christian and Jewish populations. The only one where you don’t see it, where you can’t have a Christian church or synagogue is Saudi Arabia,” Hooper said.” He also noted that one member of the Iranian parliament is Jewish.
