Palestinian Christians Being Invisibly EradicatedTopics: Middle East News and Perspectives
Islam's global war against Christians continues unabated, although in the West Bank and and Gaza it's a bit more subtle than elsewhere. However, from Jonathan Spyer at the JP via BackSpin, we learn that the eradication of Christian communities in the Gaza Strip is quietly tolerated by Hamas:
Hamas is officially committed to tolerance toward the Christian community, and spokesmen for the authorities have criticized the attacks. In practice, however, only superficial investigations have taken place, and arrests are rare. In the few cases where arrests have been made, the suspects were not charged and were quickly released. This was the case, for example, with two members of the Jaish al-Islam who were suspected of involvement in the YMCA bombing.
A recent article in the Palestinian Al-Ayyam newspaper drew attention to the long-simmering issue of "compulsory purchase" of land owned by Christians. This trend has been particularly noticeable in the Bethlehem, Ramallah and al-Bireh areas. Individuals with close links to the Palestinian Authority security forces, or to powerful clans, have adopted a variety of means to lay their hands on Christian-owned land. These have included false registration documents, squatters, and the involvement of senior PA security officers.

is it Islam that is bombing the Palestinians (and thus blowing up some Christians) or the Zionist Israeli jets? LOL what a joke this article is.
