RE: The Golden Report from Jerusalem :
"Any" Arab? There is a term for saying something like that. It is bigotry. I sincerely doubt that even most Arabs fall into that group. Whomever you are quoting should not be listened to.
The extremists on all sides of this conflict, whether they call themselves Christians, Muslims, or Jews, are a disgrace to the human race. It is especially odious for those who claim to follow the Prince of Peace to engage in racial bigotry.
Not so much bigotry as hyperbole. golden uses the word Arab twice before in the segment SheEagle quoted both times referring to people he is friendly with.
That the 2 cities were at least nominally christian for so many years, may it be relavent that the military establishment of the nation of Israel and the almost blind support from the USA, inclubing many Christians, is what has stirred up the persecution of christians in the palitinian places?
Ken, you are showing your Western mentality. For people in that region of the world, even Arabs commonly quantify their kinship, origins, clans, tribes, etc. Distinctions are even made among different sects of Muslims. And as noted, the author of the piece even calls Arabs who are Christians, Christian Arabs. The Eastern / Mid-Eastern mindset is different from ours. You are, as they say down South, "pickin."
But, but, it's the only mentality I have.
Since the UN created the State of Israel, Bethlehem has never belonged to Israel. Isreilis have at times attempted to establish a presence in Bethlehem through the building of settlements. It has not at any time been Christian, or been under Christian control.
