|Jesus at Israel’s Checkpoint|
|Israel’s Irish Embassy’s Racist Cartoon|
As any half-wit with a couple of brain cells to spare would know, Christianity developed out of a struggle amongst the Jewish community in Palestine. The poor Jews and farmers gradually became Christianised and today their descendants are the Christian Palestinians. The better off either emigrated and became traders or moved to the Hellenised cities of the Middle East like Alexandria or Damascus.
None of this stopped the Israeli embassy in Dublin issuing a post on the Israel in Ireland Facebook page which showed a picture of Mary and Jesus, accompanied by the comment: “A thought for Christmas . . . If Jesus and mother Mary were alive today, they would, as Jews without security, probably end up being lynched in Bethlehem by hostile Palestinians. Just a thought . . .”
The Israeli Embassy has apologised and taken down the post. Among the posts it attracted was one saying: “Have you no regard for honesty whatsoever? If Jesus Mary were alive today, they would be protesting against the Israeli occupation of Palestine, along with all the Palestinian Christians currently living in Bethlehem.”
