     ‎“Residents of Jerusalem held back their ‎pain and insisted on celebrating the ‎holidays of their Christian brothers, who ‎follow the Western calendar in occupied ‎Jerusalem, to the rhythm of the bells of the ‎Church of the Holy Sepulcher, and ‎insisted on marking the birthday of Jesus, ‎peace be upon Him, the first Palestinian ‎and the first Martyr (Shahid).”‎
