"The sale of Palestinian land to the Israeli racist colonialist occupiers and settlers is a betrayal of Jesus" declare Christian Palestinians

Excerpt of an op-ed by Muwaffaq Matar, Fatah Revolutionary Council member and regular columnist for the official PA daily


Headline: “Christmas – the human spiritual nationalism”





Jesus, peace be upon him, is a Palestinian who was born in Bethlehem, and during his life he preached for love and peace between the people in his homeland. He was crucified and then resurrected on the land of Jerusalem, Allah’s city. Bethlehem, Jesus’ birthplace, and the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, Palestine’s eternal capital, will both continue to exist as long as the sky is blue during the daytime…

The Christian Palestinians have understood the danger of Judaization to their existence and to their holy sites… They also know that the Zionist plot is not limited only to Judaizing the holy sites of the Muslim Palestinians…

Therefore, they view the sale of Palestinian lands to the Israeli racist colonialist occupiers and settlers as a betrayal of Jesus.They think that whoever does this… is not eligible to represent the church or any Christian citizen in Palestine.
