That is exactly what you said. English has these funny rules. When you don't specify any quantity and then describe a group, the reader is to understand that the description is a defining characteristic of that group. There was no conditional clause.

Does it state every Muslim country - No - It states that you have never been to xxx where persecution exists.Now have you been to a Muslim country that practices these things mentioned??? If yes then the question could have been worded differently - If not then the statement is correct.
Trying to read to much into something.
We know that Christians can build Churches in some Muslim countries - But many of these countries make them jump thru hoops - Fact
We know that Churches cannot be built in Saudi - Fact
We know that Copts in Egypt are singled out for persecution. Fact
Christians are persecuted in many Muslim dominated societies - Fact. Not all but the majority - Persecution does not always mean show trials, false imprisonment - It can run along a number of rights that Muslims enjoy but Christians do not. Again Fact.
