This is a must watch….most Americans don’t tend to care about the Palestinian people because they view them all as “Islamic extremists” which is of course ridiculous propaganda. But – I wonder how many Christians would continue to support Israel so unconditionally when they see how indelicate they’ve been with people who follow the Christian faith…and what they’ve done regarding Bethlehem. After all – they want it to be a JEWISH state…that doesn’t leave room for anyone else.
There used to be a vibrant Christian community within that region; most were Palestinians…but now – they’re being pushed out. And if you watch the last 90 seconds of the video – you’ll see…the Israeli Ambassador to the U.S. is FREAKING out. He even pulled out the antisemitic card earlier in the interview regarding Christian reactions to Israeli policy. Knee. Jerk. Reaction.
“If you see what’s happening in the West Bank, you will find that the West Bank is becoming more and more like a piece of Swiss cheese where Israel gets the cheese that is the land, the water resources, the archaeological sites. And the Palestinian are pushed in the holes behind the walls.”
Israeli website 972Mag has an account of the persecution Christians are experiencing:
Palestinian Christians are, indeed, worried about the militancy of extremists who cloak themselves in distorted Islamic rhetoric. Yet, the majority of Palestinian Muslims and Christians have chosen peaceful resistance. To say that Hamas is the cause of the declining Christian population in the occupied Palestinian territories is standing the truth on its head.
Our people are fleeing their homeland because the Israelis are confiscating the land of Palestinians — Muslims and Christians alike — to build Jewish-only settlements and the Apartheid Wall which is ghettoizing many Palestinian communities. Palestinian Christians are leaving because of Israeli checkpoints and barriers that severely restrict the freedom of movement of Palestinians, destroying their economy and preventing their access to their holy places in Jerusalem. They are leaving because Israel diverts Palestinian water resources in a way that gives illegal Jewish settlements the right to enjoy swimming pools while the fields of Palestinian farmers next door go fallow for lack of water.
