The church, whether catholic, protestant or other, have to wake up and defend what is left of Christianity in Israel/Palestine and Bethlehem. Otherwise, why not cancel Christmas?
Came across this recently in Rome: Interesting how the Israeli state always manage to get its (dubious) message of peace and brotherhood across. As here among Rome’s historical excavations, a gift to Rome’s citizens in the form of a olive tree – all this at the same time as Palestinian farmer’s olive trees are bulldozed and up-rooted by Israeli settlers and Zionists. So much for piece and justice.
