The website, if you guys want the link I'll show it to you, said that the Muslims were pretty much tolerant of the Orthodox faith ....
It depends on the country. There are many Muslim nations that are not tolerant of the Orthodox. You might want to check out some Orthodox websites for a different prospective than the one that you found. The Orthodox Church in many Muslim countries has been almost decimated. In some countries the oppression has been violent (like the Armenian massacre by the Turks in 1915). In others, the persecution is more subtle. They simply make it very difficult for a Christian to worship or live in their country.
I read a great book about this once, “From the Holy Mountain. It talks about the state of the Christianity (mostly Orthodox) in Muslim countries. http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... s&n=507846
Some of the more subtle ways of getting rid of the Orthodox is by not letting them build new churches or repair old ones. In some countries, very old, very beautiful Orthodox chruches have been bulldozed. One country removed mosques that were in the way of a new dam, while letting an important Orthodox church be distroyed by the water. In many countries, things like this happen all the time.
I think that if you asked most Orthodox Christians who have been in countries that are dominated by Moslems, you won't find many that agree with the website that you found. The book I cited will give you more information.
According to what I have read, the Catholic and Orthodox Church were getting along pretty well around the time of the Council of Florence but then the Muslims put pressure on the Orthodox Churches and they were forced to dissociate from the Catholic Church.
I haven't heard that before.
