For those who love irony, this is as good as it gets.
Every two years in Bethlehem is an international “Palestinian Christian” conference called “Christ at the Checkpoint.” It is an anti-Zionist “Israel-is-sinning” fest, where locals and foreigners gather to bash Jews, claim that the Israeli “Occupation” is the most terrible thing for Christians since Nero and complain about the security barrier. Incidentally, that same barrier, if it had been up all around Israel, may have prevented my own attempted murder, but that’s another story.
Two of the main speakers at this antisemitic banquet are Lisa Loden, a Christian and Mustafa Abu Sway – a Hamas-linked cleric endorsed on the Hamas website (and author of this gem). Loden and Sway are going to talk about the bullying Jews and the Palestinian victims.
Personally speaking, as a victim of terror, my fellow Jews never congratulated me for victimhood but thankfully compelled me to choose life, but that’s another story too.
Under the Oslo Accords, Bethlehem is totally controlled by the Palestinian Authority. Beit Jala, the surrounding neighborhood is essentially controlled by Israel. Very few people are going to the conference, not only because of the security situation but also because ISIS are actually threatening Christians in Bethlehem, leaving them inadequately protected by the Palestinian Authority.
Now, here is the gold.
At the request of the organisers, the conference will be held in BEIT JALA – under the protective eyes of the Israeli army!
I just hope that these hypocrites get on their knees in historical Bethlehem of Judea, and thank a Jewish Jesus for the Jewish soldiers who are risking their lives to protect them as they slight the Jewish people and the Jewish State.
