The Palestinian Authority is slamming Israel for oppressing Christians. However, if you look at the links below the video, you will see who represent the real oppressors of Arab Christians.
The Blaze Wishing the “merriest of holidays” to Christians in Israel and around the world, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu acknowledged the grave threats Christians face in the Muslim world, while reminding us that Israel is the one place in the Middle East where Christians can practice their religion freely.
Bibi adds, “So as you celebrate Christmas and your holy holidays, we hope that you will recall the places where Judaism and Christianity emerged in our ancient land: Nazareth and Bethlehem, the Jordan River, the Sea of Galilee. And our eternal capital, Jerusalem.”
Palestinians will no doubt be unhappy Netanyahu referred to Bethlehem as part of the ancient land of Israel and Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. The PA released its own videotaped Christmas message titled “Justice is Possible and Hope is Justified.” Not one word is spoken in the video, but its images speak volumes.
The video begins by showing Christmas lights and decorations and worshipers – including a teenager – lighting candles in a Christian church, presumably the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. It then cuts to the same Christian teen riding his bicycle but passing what’s presented as the menacing Israeli separation barrier. Israeli authorities erected that barrier – which pro-Palestinian activists refer to as the “apartheid wall” – after a wave of suicide bombings ten years ago killed hundreds of Israelis. Since it was erected has successfully obstructed the free movement of would-be Palestinian suicide bombers.
