Netanyahu has wished Christians in Israel and throughout the world a Merry Christmas.
In a videotaped message, he claimed that Christians are subject to persecution throughout the Middle East, except in Israel. (!!)
“Christian communities across the Middle East are experiencing a particularly difficult time, with violence, persecution and fear,” Netanyahu said.
“Here in Israel, religious freedom is a sacred principle. Israel’s Christian citizens enjoy the full blessing of freedom and democracy. Their equal rights are enshrined in Israeli law. Let us remember the common heritage and values that unite us in the face of extremism and hatred, which we will never accept,” he said.
The reality, of course, is that Christians are routinely exterminated in Palestine, since almost all Christians are Palestinian. (The rest are Armenians, or else they are foreign visitors who worship Jews.) Ten percent of all Arabs in Palestine are Christian. Jews call them “Notzri.”
