I find this significant and utterly amazing that the world is pushing Israel to give up even more land to this governing body that violates human rights at every turn. Bethlehem is a center for Christian adoration and worship, as it is the birthplace of the Messiah. Our Savior. It has a history of destruction from the Romans to the Muslims. The Romans erected a temple to the god Adonis, the muslims destroyed, rebuilt, and destroyed it many times. With even one Caliph promising to preserve it for Christians. So when they say that Jew’s or Christians have no history in these places they are simply lying. Most recently, in 1995, Israel turned it over to the Palestinian National Authority in accordance with the Oslo peace accord. Again it was attacked by the intifada. And even today with all the promises and talk of peace, it is a center for Christian persecution, by the very authority that the world say’s should govern. It took the Police in Bethlehem 1 hour to respond to calls for help.
(Israel National News) Christian Arab residents of the village of El-Khader in the Bethlehem area were savagely attacked by local Muslims as they celebrated a Christian holiday last week. A report by CAMERA, an organization which monitors anti-Israel bias in the media, reported that Christians attempting to enter Saint George’s Monastery in the village were intimidated and attacked with rocks and stones. Muslims Stone, Attack Christians at Church – Middle East – News – Israel National News.
This video from Christmas a couple years ago, show’s how the Christians in Bethlehem struggle for their freedoms to worship. And there are even Christians that believe the propaganda. This governing body will not allow religious freedom not now or ever.
