The Orthodox here have never been persecuted by the Muslims.
YET is the word missing from your sentence.  ;D
They haven't started persecuting us for 0.5 k years. I doubt they'll start soon.
They have not bred themselved into a majority yet.
I would be happy to agree with you, but then both of us would be wrong.

They assimilate, sadly.

As soon as they're able, on the basis of demographics, i.e. more Muslims than others.  Then you will have no doubt.

Maybe in Poland.  Not in Britain.

I weep for the man who seeks to assimilate into all aspects of danish society.

Obviously you haven't spent much time in Syria or Egypt lately.

Being danish is something you learn to love to hate.

How would one categorize the treatment of the Armenians in the early 20th century?

Come over here. If you want to taste wienerbrød, you have to do it the danish way.

Uh, no thanks. I'll stick to homemade pasta and sauce with a good ol NY strip on the side.

You can keep your weeners...... ;D
