Jesus was born a Jew more than 1,500 years before Islam appeared in the world, Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said Tuesday in a mockery of Mahmoud Abbas’’ annual assertion that “Jesus was a Palestinian .”

Abbas wished Christians in the Palestinian Authority, which until only a few years ago harassed and attacked Christians in Bethlehem and elsewhere, a happy holiday and reminded them, “Jesus, the first Palestinian, was born in Bethlehem 2,000 years ago and brought a message and path for millions of people in the world.”

The chairman of the Palestinian Authority added, “We try to walk in his path exactly as we Palestinians fight for our freedom.” He did not mention the path of “resistance,” the Arabs’ code word for terror, as being consistent with that of Jesus.

Palmor retorted, “Abbas should take a look at the New Testament before uttering such nonsense, but we can forgive him because he doesn’t know what he is doing.

“He ‘forgot’ that the year of the birth of Jesus was 600 years before the birth of the Prophet Mohammed and Islam. He also forgot a second detail – the fact that Jesus was from a Jewish family and lived as a Jew, and it is reasonable to assume that if he were to arrive in the Palestinian Authority today, the Arabs would gouge out his eyes and teeth.”

  1. Y’shua spoke that whatever one does to the least of His brethren, they have done it to Him. Since Y’shua was Jewish then we know He was talking to the goyim, whether it is good or bad. Abbas must have not understood that part like so many. What have the goyim done to Israel? Good, bad, nothing? Stand with Israel against those who seek their destruction. Help the IDF, help your Jewish neighbors, help and don’t think I can’t. That is a lame excuse meaning I don’t want to.
