More Fun For Israel...

Bethlehem Christians Fear Muslim Neighbors

A number of Christian families have finally decided to break their silence and talk openly about what they describe as Muslim persecution of the Christian minority in this city.

The move comes as a result of increased attacks on Christians by Muslims over the past few months. The families said they wrote letters to Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas, the Vatican, Church leaders and European governments complaining about the attacks, but their appeals have fallen on deaf ears.

According to the families, many Christians have long been afraid to complain in public about the campaign of "intimidation" for fear of retaliation by their Muslim neighbors and being branded "collaborators" with Israel.

But following an increase in attacks on Christian-owned property in the city over the past few months, some Christians are no longer afraid to talk about the ultra-sensitive issue. And they are talking openly about leaving the city.

"The situation is very dangerous," said Samir Qumsiyeh, owner of the Beit Sahur-based private Al-Mahd (Nativity) TV station. "I believe that 15 years from now there will be no Christians left in Bethlehem. Then you will need a torch to find a Christian here. This is a very sad situation."

Qumsiyeh, one of the few Christians willing to speak about the harsh conditions of their community, has been the subject of numerous death threats. His house was recently attacked with fire-bombs, but no one was hurt.

Qumsiyeh said he has documented more than 160 incidents of attacks on Christians in the area in recent years.

the smartest group I"ve ever heard of is Islam....even more than the Nazis in their evil plotting, patience (above all) and ideology.

they're winning in America ONLY since 9/11...cabbies refusing fares (where were they before 9/11, why no complaints before?), more visible headscarves, wanting private Muslim prayer rooms (how did they fly before) at airports....they are EMBOLDENED by the sins of their brethren...they know VERY WELL that our political correctness wILL DEFINITELY be the end of AMerica.

And they're smart in Bathlehem, too...as they're being smart in Dearborn......make it SO unpleasant nobody other than a Muslim will want to live there....

And, we're all afraid..even the Christian broadcasting station had a memo go around warning NOT to say anything against Islam. WHY? COuld their offices have been threatened?

Yes, they're smart, and they have a patience the Western world is fast weaning itself from with immediate gratification, etc.....

Their plan is said to be 25 years...and then the world will be Islamic........or die.

SO, what to do? Wouldn't it be SO great if Americans finally rose up and said "ENOUGH! we are NOT taking orders from CAIR, we are NOT a Sharia nation and never will be and, if you even suggest it, you're OUT OF HERE TODAY! We're going into your mosques and we're kicking you out if you're even suggesting anything like this..Germany's doing that now, and their mosques can't be on more 'holy ground' than yours are here...so we're not buying that anymore..."

ya, that's going to happen..RIGHT?

sorry to be so pessimistic, but I don't see it changing....they're doing a hatchet job on NBC tonight about a new security precaution at airports hosted by Brian Williams "Is this for safety or is it just more profiling?" Islam wins.

Thank you Donal for putting this article up.

Awful things are being done to CHRISTIANS in the holy land and somehow the dumb world buys the Arab story that the Jews are the guilty ones...

Israel respect her Christians' right to worship , has tremendous relations with the Christians who come from all over the world to pray in Israel and to support it.

We need to uncover the lies , fight back with the truth.

Let a Muslim home be firebombed by a Jew or Christian (who wouldn't in the first place) and see the outcry by the UN!

Another example of the "religion of peace."

This is disgusting!
