Christians under threat in the Middle East per BBC News

Jane Corbin for the BBC reports on the persecution of Jews across the Middle East, , there's a programme about it tonight that this article accompanies - This World: Kill The Christians will be broadcast on BBC Two on Wednesday 15 April at 21:00. 

The article is interesting, including where the West's invasion of Iraq is blamed for ending the Christian safety in Iraq, but it is this passage caught my eye:
'The same story is being repeated across the Middle East, where the Arab Spring unleashed forces that turned against Christians and the authoritarian leaders who once protected them.'
Strange, I can think of one Middle East state where Christians live free to worship and live peacefully. But then why would the institutionally anti Israel BBC ever refer to Israel positively?

Christians don't fare so badly in Lebanon or Jordan.
