In my experience, a lot of Middle Eastern Christianity is more cultural, including being influenced by Islamic society, than spiritual. And Westernized Arabs find it difficult to gel with those from the Middle East, and vice versa. How do you all feel about this, and is there a way for cultural Christians to be more spiritual, and for East and West to bridge the gap?

Not really. The differences are too great.

So do you just not mix?
That is not the issue. People from different cultures can and do mix. But they do not give up their cultural traditions or biases.

I think most people moving someplace new do so to change their traditions and biases. At least most who immigrate proactively. There are also those who recreate their cultures in their new place and don't integrate, which I don't understand.

Yes, that is rather strange. Why did they move to the West, if that was not really acceptable to them in the first place?

Then we have the huge Muslim migrant invasion of the West (millions), which is actually a part of Jihad according to the Quran. The whole idea being to come into the West and then undermine Western and Christian values, establish Sharia law, establish mosques, promote Islamist Radicalism, and eventually establish an Islamist Caliphate. Not to mention increase the Muslim population drastically by having many more children than Westerners.

This is ASYMMETRICAL WARFARE, but Western politicians are too stupid and too ignorant to understand Islam and its plans for worldwide domination. After 9/11 Bush said stupidly -- "Islam is a religion of peace!" Imagine the reverse if 9/11 had happened in Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia has been playing both sides -- funding Islamist terrorism and ensuring that the West buys its oil, so that more terrorism can be funded!
