EIGHT MESSAGES TO THE CHRISTIAN COMMUNITY FROM ISRAEL

Timely messages for the Easter Season 😉

It is becoming a common occurrence in Israel to hear about Jews burning churches, spitting on Christian clerics, burning Christian Bibles and intimidating and harassing other Jews who believe in Jesus. Unfortunately this is almost unheard of from the Western media. If it was not for the internet this would be unknown to millions of people around the world.
Here I am presenting one example of the rampant discrimination and xenophobia against Christians that exists in the “Jewish state”. Please feel free to copy and post this video in other sites.

The following is what the Israeli Ambassador to the US said just a week ago…. (is he dreaming?)

Israel is only Mideast state safe for Christians, envoy to U.S. says

In Wall Street Journal op-ed, Michael Oren compares what he calls the current repression of Christians in the Muslim world to the expulsion of Jews from Arab states.

Israel is the only country in the Middle East that is safe for Christians, Israel’s ambassador to the United States Michael Oren wrote in an op-ed column for the Wall Street Journal on Friday, comparing what he said was the suppression of Christian communities in Arab states to the twentieth-century expulsion of Jews from these nations.

In his article, Oren cited the continuing violence against Egypt’s Coptic Christians, the burning of Iraqi churches, a Saudi ban on Christian worship and the desecration of the Church of the Nativity in the West Bank as instances indicating a threat to Christianity in the Muslim world, adding that conversion “to Christianity is a capital offense in Iran, where last month Pastor Yousef Nadarkhani was sentenced to death.”

The Israeli official went on to compare what he called a sweeping action against Christian communities in the Arab world to the expulsion of 800,000 “from Arab countries, mostly following the Six-Day War.”

Ultimately, Oren concludes, the only place in the Middle East where Christians aren’t endangered, but are actually flourishing, is in Israel.

“Since Israel’s founding in 1948, its Christian communities (including Russian and Greek Orthodox, Catholics, Armenians and Protestants) have expanded more than 1,000%,” he added.

Oren concluded the article, in which he cites the exodus of Palestinian Christians from the West Bank and Gaza over increased pressure by Islamist groups such as Hamas, by syaing that the “extinction of the Middle East’s Christian communities is an injustice of historic magnitude.”

“Yet Israel provides an example of how this trend can not only be prevented but reversed. With the respect and appreciation that they receive in the Jewish state, the Christians of Muslim countries could not only survive but thrive,” Oren wrote.

And let’s not forget these attitudes…

Perhaps this Oren guy should take a daytrip to the illegal settlements  (including Jerusalem) to see the reality he seems ignorant of.

    There is something about lies and this tribe’s propaganda that go hand in hand. Zionist terrorist gangs ethnically cleansed most of the Palestinian Christians out (that process of ethnic cleansing still continues today by the way bit by bit). They cannot return to their country because of “Israel”. Most live in neighboring countries in refugee camps.

    Can someone tell me or define who a Jew is? Israelis claim to be Jews but what about Jesus himself and his followers, are not they Jews also because they are sons of Israel. Many other people in the world would be Jews by the same logic, including Christians, Muslims and atheists. Do all of these have the “right” to live in the land “promised” to the Jews?

    Talked to a Palestinian Christian who does a yearly trip to a local Catholic church to sell magnificent olive wood carvings (at a third of the price in Israel). The above by Oren is a bunch of propagandist nonsense.
    The skill shown in the carvings were originally taught to the Christian Palestinians by the Franciscans. What’s behind the burning of the Palestinian olive groves by the Israels is far more than just taking away land ownership claims and olive produce. It’s the wood and a very lucrative form of livelihood from the Christian tourist trade. In Bethlehem the olive wood religious artifact traders are now kept 100 yards away behind a wall to prevent tourists from visibly and easily patronizing the Christian palestinian businesses. Tourist must make an extra effort, discouraged by IDF soldiers to walk the distance to the religious olive wood carving merchants.
    What amazed me was that this Palestinian Christian looked no different than a Sephardic Jew and had an accent indistinguishable from a Jewish Israeli. Don’t forget that around 600-700 many Jews converted to Islam and stayed in Palestine. Their claim to the land certainly is prior to the Ashkenazi. And the Jews who became Christian and stayed in Palestine remaining true to their faith have prior rights also. In 2002 in Jenin the Israelis bulldozed a Christian church that stood for 1800 years. See Jim Stone’s webpage for photos. Oren conveniently forgets
    this as he spouts his lies.
