PA Hides Islamic Arson of Church with ‘Electrical Failure’

Wednesday, October 7th, 2015

This is a “price tag” attack that international media don’t want to report – because it was perpetrated by Arab Muslims and not by Jews.

There now is proof that the Palestinian Authority was lying through its teeth when it claimed that the last September fire at the St. Charbel Monastery in Bethlehem was caused by an “electrical failure.”

The blaze was reported here by the Jewish Press.com.

Contrary to the claim of the Palestinian Authority, an electrical failure was not the cause of the fire for the simple reason that since the building was without electricity due to renovations.

Bishop Moussa El-Haj said that there was a break-in at the monastery two days before the fire and that items were stolen. There also was a fire in the oldest room of the monastery, where furniture was burned.

He told a Christian Arab website:

There is no electricity in the monastery because or repairs and restoration. This fire was deliberately set.

The biggest question that the Palestinian Authority lie raises is why does Pope Francis so enthusiastic about the Ramallah regime and Mahmoud Abbas, who touts freedom of worship while not only trying to prevent Jews from visiting, let along praying, on the Temple Mount but also covers up radical Islamic arson of a church?

Another question is: Why do foreign and most Israeli media go off the deep end when Jews burn a church but keep silent when Muslims do the same?

The answer is that Jews are not supposed to do these type of things, but it is accepted that Muslims do.

It is correct that Jews, the Chosen People, should not commit such acts, but why is it considered acceptable practice when Muslims do so?

Vatican Signs Treaty with ‘State of Palestine’ Proving Pope to be Fallible

Friday, June 26th, 2015

The Vatican signed a treaty with the “State of Palestine” on Friday.

It’s the first time the Pope used the phrase “State of Palestine” in an official document, proving once and for all that the Pope is completely fallible in his official capacity.

The treaty deals with aspects of life and activities of the Catholic Church in “Palestine.” It also recognizes PA control over eastern Jerusalem. (Huh?)

The PA’s signing an international treaty is a breach of the Oslo accords, which shows how much you can rely on any treaty the PA signs.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry expressed its regret at the Vatican’s decision.

Under Palestinian Authority rule, the number of Christians in PA controlled areas has dropped to less than 2% of the population. In Bethlehem, the number of Christians has dropped to below 20%, where once they made up 80% of the city.

According to the Vatican, the percentage of Christians in the PA has halved since the year 2000.

Many Christians have run away from the Palestinian Authority to pre-67 Israel, where they don’t face PA and Muslim persecution.

At most there are 50,000 Christians in Judea and Samaria and a mere 3000 remaining in Gaza.

The PA hides any official and accurate statistics.

Perhaps the Pope is concerned for the day when all the Christians run away from the “State of Palestine”, and then no one will be there to protect Christian holy sites, except this treaty.

Of course, if the Pope believes a treaty with the PA will protect Christians, he has a thing to learn about the PA and their keeping treaties.

On a related note, Khaled Abu Toameh reports that ISIS has vowed to expel Arab Christians from east Jerusalem by the end of Ramadan.

Israel Welcomes 130,000 Tourists for Holidays

Friday, April 3rd, 2015

The Tourism Ministry is expecting about 130,000 visitors in Israel over the period of Passover and the Christian Holy Week.

About 20 direct flights are expected in Ovdah airport in the Negev, bringing tourists from France, Russia and Britain to celebrate the Passover holidays in Eilat.

1,000 Danes Form ‘Ring of Peace’ Around Copenhagen Synagogue on Sabbath

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

A ring of peace encircled Jewish worshipers at a synagogue on the Sabbath this weekend for the second time in as many months.

On Saturday February 21, some 1,300 Muslims in Norway encircled the sole functioning synagogue in Oslo as Jews prayed within, showing their solidarity and protesting terrorist violence.

More than 1,000 Muslim and Christian Danes clasped hands to form a human chain around the Copenhagen Great Synagogue. It was the site where 37-year-old Dan Uzan, a volunteer security guard was murdered by a radical Islamic terrorist Feb. 14.

Organizer Niddal el-Jabr, a Muslim Copenhagen resident, told The Local newspaper on March 14, “We want to send a clear signal that we want a peaceful society in Denmark…

“Jews should be able to have their religion in peace,” he said.

Uzan’s father, Sergeot Uzan, told DR that he saw the move as an expression of “hope for humanity and democracy.”

It wasn’t the first.

On February 27, some 300 people held a peace vigil at the Copenhagen City Hall Square as well, organized by a separate Danish Muslim group.

Danish Muslims – who number some 200,000 – now comprise three percent of Denmark’s 5.4 million residents, according to the On Islam media outlet, and Islam is the country’s second largest faith group after the Lutheran Protestant Church.

Boston Muslim and Reform Jewish Clergy Pray to Stop the Snow [video]

Tuesday, February 24th, 2015

Muslim, Christian and reform Jewish clergy have put together a YouTube video, a prayer so to speak, to ask God to deliver Boston from more snow.

“The winter from hell” has brought Boston within inches of a 20-year old record of 107.60 inches of snow. The white winter has disrupted commercial and personal life in the city, and several members of the clergy got together to produce a light-hearted video and rely on prayer to for God to send relief to the city.

Thirteen members of the clergy from mosques, churches and Reform temples appear in the video below, which carries a message of “We are in this together.”

“Boston, are you weary?” asks Rev. Jay Williams of Union United Methodist Church.

“Weary of digging out?” says Rev. Burns Stanfield of the Fourth Presbyterian Church in South Boston.

The video features a verse from Jeremiah 29:7: “Seek the welfare of the city.”

Looking on the good side of things, the multi-faith clergy call on Bostoners to help each other and smile while thinking of those poor southerner who “don’t have the luxury of snow days.” “Can I get an Amen?” asks Rev. June Cooper of the City Mission Society of Boston.

While the men and women of the cloth are having fun with a video, someone else has found a novel way to get rid of the snow and make money. Kyle Waring is selling 10 pounds of snow for only $89, including shipping.

“I put the snow in a plastic bag, and put that in tinfoil,” he told Boston.com. “Then I put that package in an insulated container that’s an inch and a half thick, and ship it overnight. It’s sealed tight in Omaha steaks packaging.”

President Rivlin hosts New Year’s reception for leaders of Israel’s Christian communities

Tuesday, December 30th, 2014

President Reuven Rivlin hosted the traditional, annual reception for leaders of Israel’s Christian community leaders on Tuesday to mark the civil New Year.

The President welcomed nine heads of various churches in Israel and senior members of the community and said:

“Over the past months, we have been greatly concerned, by the ongoing religious persecution and restrictions on freedom of worship for minorities in the Middle East. Because of their faith hundreds of thousands are being exiled, forcibly converted, attacked, and brutally murdered.

“This is a war against extremism, a war being waged against those who want to spread a message of freedom of worship and coexistence, by those who carry the flag of destruction and hatred.

“This is a cause of great worry and pain for all us. We share the Psalms of King David, the words of the Prophets, and a love for Jerusalem, and the Holy Land. As we know, we are all created in the image of God. As the prophet Malachi wrote, ‘Do we not, all have one Father? Did not one God create us?’ We will continue to live together, and build bridges of peace, here, in the land of our fathers.

“May we all, Christians, Muslims, Jews, children of Abraham, together with all those of different faiths, see the fulfillment of the vision of the prophet Isaiah, that ‘Nation shall not lift up sword against nation, and no longer learn war.’ Let 2015 be a year of partnership and friendship. Let it be a year of understanding and mutual respect. I wish you all a peaceful and happy New Year.”
