‘Palestinians’ Show Their True Colors As Usual By Harassing Xtians During Holiday Season
Besides committing ongoing terror attacks against Israelis since the beginning of the new wave of violence at the start of the Jewish New Year, Palestinian terrorists are harassing Christians during their holiday season.
Palestinian security forces say they arrested two suspected Islamists for burning Christmas trees.
A Palestinian security officer said Friday the suspects set fire Wednesday to a tree in Zababdeh, a Christian majority village near Jenin. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity because he isn’t authorized to speak to reporters.
He says both suspects are under investigation for possible ties to Islamic terror groups. He also says Palestinian security forces arrested Wednesday about a dozen suspected radical Islamists in Bethlehem.
Christians from around the world had arrived in Bethlehem for Christmas Eve celebrations on Thursday, trying to lift spirits on a holiday dampened by months of Israeli-Palestinian violence.

Bethlehem has been a focal point for clashes between Israeli troops and Palestinian protesters during a three-month wave of terror that has gripped the region.
The city was quiet on Thursday, although violence raged elsewhere in Judea and Samaria.

Christians are fleeing a community where they resided for thousands of years, but which is now controlled by the PA.”
