Bethlehem’s last Christians - WHERE ARE the CHURCHES?!
Apr 2012 World, churches are silent about Islamic persecution of Palestinian Christians.
CBS 60 Minutes reported on the Palestinian Christians, indicting Israel as responsible for their disappearance. The story caused Israel tremendous PR damage.
Let CBS and all of them be damned, cursed for their FALSE REPORTING.
Muslim persecution against the Christians is taking place in Palestinian areas.
Christians have long been the frontrunners of Arab nationalism.
Edward Said was the most prominent Palestinian Christian. The propaganda term Nakba has been penned by a Christian, Constantin Zureiq.
The terrorist George Habash was a Christian, as was Yasser Arafat’s wife.
Azmi Bishara, the Arab MK who leaked secrets to Hezballah, comes from a middle-class Christian family from Nazareth.
Palestinian Christians foolishly created a Muslim-Christian unity to portray Israel as the aggressor and invader.
Arab Christians have been in the vanguard of the battle for the destruction of Israel. IDIOTS.
It was a political operation that also served to cover the crimes committed against Christians by the PLO and the Islamic groups:
forced marriage, conversions, beatings, land theft, fire bombings, commercial boycott, torture, kidnapping, sexual harassment, and extortion.
The latest victim has been the Baptist Church in Bethlehem, which the Palestinian Authority just declared as illegitimate,
as the US church’s message of reconciliation flies in the face of the hateful propaganda permeating Palestinian society.
Arab Christians were obliged to make continual compromises, afraid to mention their own suffering for fear of irritating the Muslim authorities.
Soon it became a taboo subject even in the West.
Persecution of Christians under Islam, Newsweek cover story, did not mention the Palestinian areas,
where Christians dropped from 15% of the population in 1950 to just 2% today.
With the PA refusing to reveal accurate statistics, the real extent of Christian emigration is unknown.
Christian shops firebombed
As the CBS report showed, Palestinian Christians today have to speak out against 'Israeli occupation,'
because if they don’t, their silence will be perceived as pro-Israeli by the Muslims.
Christian leaders don’t mention the fact that they have suffered the most from the mafia-style rule of Yasser Arafat’s kleptocracy,
that slogans like “Islam will win” and “First the Saturday people then the Sunday People” have been painted on their churches, and that PLO flags were draped over crosses.
After the 1948 war, Christian communities suffered most in the West Bank, not under Israeli 'occupation,' but because of Muslims.
Ramallah was 90% Christian before the war, while Bethlehem was 80% Christian. By 1967 over half were Muslim, while Ramallah is a large Muslim city today.

I have heard what the prophets say who prophesy lies in my name.
Prophets Who Prophecy Lies in My Name
Christian Palestinianism and the Anti-Israel Crusade charts the opposition within the Church toward Israel.
False shepherds insist that Israel has been replaced by the Church in the purposes of God and that the
Land promises made to Abraham and his seed have been fulfilled in Christ.
The Jewish nation is thus twice robbed through the medium of replacement theology: of its prophetic Scriptures and its Promised Land.
In fulfillment of the Deuteronomy law of God, the Jewish people are back in their ancient homeland after centuries of exile. Deuteronomy 30:1-9
Too many today want to 'liberating' GOD's land from GOD's chosen people, calling the Jews 'unlawful occupation.'
Thus the false church combines with the nazi goal of Islam against Israel.
Christ at the Checkpoint Conference, described Jewish and Christian Zionists as a greater threat to Arab Christians than Islam.
It is not you (Christians, Church) who supports the root (Israel, Jews), but the root (Jews) supports you.
I have not sent them, declares the LORD. They are prophesying lies in my name.
Therefore, I will banish you and you will perish, both you and the prophets who prophesy to you.
Then the LORD said to me,
The prophets are prophesying falsehood in My name.
I have neither sent them nor commanded them nor spoken to them
they are prophesying to you a false vision, divination, futility and the deception of their own minds.

Christians, Jews must unite AGAINST Islam, not with it!!
May 12, 2012 Will Jews, Christians finally join forces in battle against genocidal Islamic hatred? (I added the MUST!)
The Coliseum became a one night arena for alliance between Christians and Jews against religious hatred.
May 9 in Rome, Jewish leaders rallied alongside Christians in a candlelit vigil to denounce the attacks in the Middle East and Africa.
Speaking at the Coliseum, Rome Chief Rabbi Riccardo Di Segni slammed Western indifference surrounding the massacre of minorities in the Middle East.
Islamic groups recently issued an ultimatum to the Christians in Nigeria: “You have three days to leave, or you’ll die.” Over 13,750 Christians have already been killed in Nigeria since the introduction of Sharia laws in 2001. Some 500 Christians have been slaughtered since last December and 300 churches have been demolished.
Muslim-Christian Interfaith Group Calls for Blasphemy Laws
Oct 2012 The United Muslim Christian Forum, a friendly-sounding “interfaith” group issued a press release on September 18 demanding the prosecution of the makers of the low-quality Innocence of Muslims film that appeared on YouTube. The Islamist agenda of the group is in written form but if the past is any indication, that won’t stop elected officials and Christian leaders from embracing it in order to prove their tolerance.
The United Muslim Christian Forum (UMCF) is an entity of the Muslims of the Americas, whose members follow a cleric in Pakistan named Sheikh Mubarak Ali Gilani that refers to Osama Bin Laden as a “Saudi activist.” The group says it has 22 “villages” across the country, such as “Islamberg” in Hanock, N.Y. and “Islamville” in York County, S.C.
Gilani also leads Jamaat ul-Fuqra, a group that the State Department said in 1998 is an “Islamic sect that seeks to purify Islam through violence.” In 2009, I obtained a video of Muslim women receiving guerilla warfare training, complete in military fatigue, at “Islamberg.” This should raise questions about the purpose of Islamberg’s 24th Annual Ladies Summer Camp in July 2011.
The UMCF press release claims that the film is part of a conspiracy involving “media terrorism” to cause war between Muslims and Christians and its content should not be protected as free speech. It quotes an unidentified citizen as saying it is “barbarous treason.”

America’s Future Belongs to Islam
Feb 2013 Islam, according to newly released data from the Association of Statisticians of American Religious Bodies, is now the fastest growing religion in America, verifying President Barack Obama's claim that the United States is "no longer a Judeo-Christian country."
How many Muslims now live within the country remains anyone's guess, since the U.S. Census Bureau neglects to collect data on religious identification. A 2008 study by Cornell University projected that the number of Muslims in America had climbed from 1.6 million in 1995 to 7 million.[i ] A U.S. News and World Report survey, which was conducted at the same time, placed the figure at 5 million,[ii] while the Pew Research Center set the number at 2.35 million.
But Pew researchers admit that their survey was not thorough since it neglected to take into account immigrant and poor black Muslims.[iii] What's more, these researchers only contacted Americans with telephone landlines and failed to take into account the fact that nearly 50% of U.S. residents and age 18-35 and the nearly 100% of the illegal immigrants who communicate exclusively by cell phones.[iv]
Muslim organizations, such as the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), supported the Cornell University projection of 7 million - - based on mosque attendance.[v]
In any case, all demographers agree that throughout the coming decades, the faith of the Prophet Mohammed will continue to impact and transform all aspects of American life: social, political, and economic. They further maintain that, save for a cataclysmic sea-change in population trends, Islam by 2050 will emerge as the nation's dominant religion.
The church that foolishly opened its doors to Islam
Christians roll out welcome to Muslims who were having to pray in the wind and rain because their mosque was so small The Syed Shah Mustafa Jame Masjid mosque was too small to fit everyone in
Church minister Rev Isaac Poobalan saw worshippers praying outside
Now he has handed over part of St John's Episcopal Church in Aberdeen
Bishop says: 'It would be good to think we can change the world'
18 March 2013 By Helen Lawson
A Scottish church has become the first in the UK to share its premises with Muslim worshippers.
St John’s Episcopal Church in Aberdeen now welcomes hundreds of Muslims praying five times a day in their building as the nearby mosque was so small that they were forced to worship outside.
The minister of St John's, Rev Isaac Poobalan, has handed over part of the church hall to Chief Imam Ahmed Megharbi and the imam has led prayers in the main chapel.
Rev Poobalan said today that he would not be true to his faith if he did not offer to help.
He said: 'Praying is never wrong. My job is to encourage people to pray.
'The mosque was so full at times, there would be people outside in the wind and rain praying.
'I knew I couldn’t just let this happen - because I would be abandoning what the Bible teaches us about how we should treat our neighbours.
'When I spoke to people at the church about the situation, someone actually said to me this was not our problem, but I had seen it with my own eyes, so it was a problem.
Rev Poobalan said: 'They were out there praying and the snow came on for the first time in winter, it was really hard to watch.
'When they were doing the prayer they had their hands and feet exposed and they were sitting on on the pavement, which is very rough.
'You could even see them breathing because it was so cold and I think when I saw that, the visual impact was such that I just couldn't walk past.
'It felt wrong, mainly because the church is next door, it's a big building and it remains empty on a Friday lunchtime which is when they need the place most as that's when they are at their busiest.
'We had something we could offer and they were just standing out in the cold and I said to my congregation "we need to do something".'
Rev Poobalan said he wanted the move to help build bridges between Christians and Muslims after some initial resistance from his congregation about the move.
