Media Takes a Look at Status of Christians in BethlehemTopics: Faith, Political News and commentaries, Understanding Islam
Backspin points to two must-read articles in the media on the status of Christians in Bethlehem. One in the Wall St. Journal, in which Daniel Schwammenthal picks up on Bethlehem's embattled Christian community, noting that even in Bethlehem, Palestinian Christians are suffering under Muslim intolerance. The other, a commentary in the NY Post by Benny Avni, in which we learn that practically the only place in the region where the Christian population is growing is in Israel and that what's happening in Bethlehem is also happening across the Arab world - rising Islamism pushes non-Muslims away.
Take the time to read both pieces. It's rare for the MSM to actually cover the plight of Christians and their suffering at the hands of the clearly non-tolerant and anything-but-peaceful Islamists.
