More Palestinian Lies About Christmas

Moreover, no one should be fooled into thinking the Christian Arab minority among Palestinians are equal partners with the Sunni Muslim majority. To them they are nothing more than dhimmi – a protected but unequal minority. For all of the tension between Jews and Arabs, it is only in democratic Israel that Christians have complete religious freedom in the region.

We can hope that one day Abbas or one of his successors will be sincere when talking about peace on earth during the Christmas season. We’ll know they are serious when they stop pretending Jesus was a Palestinian. Until then, it’s clear that for the Palestinians, Christmas is just another day on the calendar whose purpose is to delegitimize Israel and to deny Jewish history and rights.

    as a born Christian, Suaha Arafat, who does not live in the palestinean territories enjoying the rich life of Monte Carlo,, Paris, and London off the riches of her terrorist husband who scammed the world for his wealth pretending to raise it for the palestineans did not attend mass in Bethleham either.

  2. Stan Harder says:

    This is, in part, what comes from the ubiquitous appellation of Arabs as Palestinians. Not insisting that Arabs be called Arabs gives these people an undeserved legitimacy and connection to the land. Let’s call a spade a spade and an Arab an Arab.

One of the key talking points by apologists for Hamas in the current conflict is that it isn’t fair that Israelis under fire have bomb shelters while Palestinians in Gaza don’t have any. Among other factors, the lack of shelters accounts in part for the differences in casualty figures between the two peoples. But somehow […]

How will all this end? Hamas seems to think it will be Netanyahu who will blink first.

Nothing short of a stroke that will decapitate the leadership of this group will convince the Arabs that Hamas has made a mistake.
