Palestinian Muslims have been persecuting Christians from day one, and that persecution has driven out almost all the Christians from Bethlehem. Those that are left are a die-hard few that may be forced to leave – or die – as the persecution of Christians increases.
Yet, you will hear none of this in the mainstream media.
And, as this persecution reared its awful head, the leadership of Bethlehem begged Israel to take over. Israel wanted to help, but the world demanded that Israel step aside.
Islam has become a scourge upon the world, something that is easy to see in Bethlehem, the birthplace of our Lord and Savior.

O Suffering Town of Bethlehem…
The most that I do for Christmas is go to church, and I did that last night. I hope that you did the same – or, at least something like it. I value every opportunity to praise our Father for sending His precious Son to Earth, to die for our sins – punished in our place.
What an amazing thing for Jesus to come, in the way that He did. He was born into a family that were rightful heirs to the throne of Israel, yet they were the lowest of peasants:
Living in Galilee, the least of Israel
Instead of leading a revolution against the Romans who occupied Israel, Jesus overthrew the bondage of sin, instead. He healed the broken, and broke the pride of the healthy. He brought forgiveness for those who sought it. And through His death on the cross, burial in another man’s tomb and His resurrection, Jesus built the only way by which we can escape everlasting punishment.
Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.
Jesus Is The ONLY Way
To reject Jesus as the ONLY way to heaven, is to condemn yourself to Hell. Only through Jesus can you be saved. To say otherwise, is to follow Satan on the path to utter destruction.
So, even though the choice of Dec 25th makes me unhappy, I still take the opportunity to praise God for sending His Son, who is equal to the Father and the Author of our faith. But, my unhappiness with the choice of the 25th may be somewhat misplaced.
Here is an interesting article that I found on stevequayle.com:
War on Christmas | Appointed time | Lights up | Follow Him | forthtell
I had not thought through the idea of when Jesus was conceived, but someone has. And, according to her, Jesus may have been conceived around the time that we celebrate His birth.
The author – Sabine Vlaming – thinks that Jesus was born in September, which sounds about right – although, I don’t think that we can be completely sure about the exact date. But, whatever the date, Sabine has gotten me thinking about when Jesus was conceived, and I appreciate that.
But, let me turn your attention back to the birthplace of Jesus.
Persecution In Bethlehem
Bethlehem literally means ‘house of bread’, but it is also a symbol of persecution – the persecution of Christians at the hands of Muslims. The Christians of Bethlehem must endure persecution every day, at the hands of their tormentors, the Muslims. Yet, so-called Christians around the world support the tormentors – and not the tormented.
Here is a quote from a recent article:
BETHLEHEM—“We are the forgotten people, but we are not forgotten by God.” That’s how Pastor Naim Khoury of First Baptist Church of Bethlehem—the largest evangelical church in the Palestinian-controlled West Bank area of Israel—explained his church’s continuing existence. After all, it’s been bombed 14 times.
The birthplace of Jesus is Bethlehem, the hometown of Israel’s King David. That part of Israel is currently in the West Bank, which Israel has given to the Palestinian Authority to govern. “We are not all terrorists,” Khoury insists, speaking in the sanctuary of his church. “There are Arab Christians here who love the Jewish people; there are sweet people here who love Jesus and love Israel.”

I know a lot of what the Christians of Bethlehem are going through, and I wrote about some of that here:
Persecution, Collapse and Economic Totalitarianism
That is a scathing indictment of the Palestinians, and those who support them.
False Christians Who Persecute Christ
In fact, it burns me up to see vile and disgusting people claim to be Christian, while supporting the awful psychopaths of the Palestinian Authority. Yes, that means you, Sean Geoffrey Turnbull, (SGTreport) and all the rest of those just like you.
Do not wish us a merry Christmas…
…while you support those who murder and terrorize the Christians where Jesus was born.
None of those people will say a SINGLE WORD about the awful plight of Christians among the Palestinians. NOT. ONE. WORD.
SGTreport, Rense, VeteransToday, David Icke, Brother Nathanael, Michael Rivero, Paul Craig Roberts and all those like them…
…are murderers by association.
They have given their support and friendship to the persecutors of the Body of Christ, and they are worthy of the strongest vilification possible. And, their judgment is coming, for God will avenge Himself of such evil.
Israel Shelters The Body Of Christ
Israel has sheltered Christians fleeing the persecution in Bethlehem, and I know this personally. My wife and I were privileged to help a brother in Christ living under the threat of death – from the Palestinian Authority. Israel is the ONLY place in the Middle East where Christianity is growing.
Yet, False Christians are persecuting the only country that is actually helping Christians.
How dare they do such a vile and evil thing. What an abominable example of self-righteous hypocrisy.
How dare they say Merry Christmas while persecuting Christ!
And yes, supporting the Palestinians and attacking Israel is persecuting Christ, because they give aid and comfort to those who are murdering Christians EVERY SINGLE DAY.
You might not want to support Israel because they are Jewish.
So, support Israel because she is the only country in the Middle East that is protecting Christians from being destroyed. They are the ONLY defenders of Christianity in the Middle East, and those who are against Israel should be ashamed of themselves.
God Will Judge
I’m sorry, but I’m REALLY upset. I thought that I could get through this article without getting boiling mad. I guess that everyone has their limits, and this is mine.
But, if you think that I’m mad, think about how God feels.
God is angry with those who have taken on the name of Christ, yet blaspheme His holy name by sinning against God. If you really are a Christian, then it’s time to act like one. It’s time to BE one.
I think that I had better change the subject before I say something that I shouldn’t. My only hope is that this gets you as mad as it gets me.
I am OUTRAGED!
So, I’ll stop now.
I truly hope that you’ll be ready for this
