Palestinian interfaith officials have warned against monopolising the city of Jerusalem by the Israeli government and the effects that would have on Christianity and Islam.

  1. So that’s the big picture that the Jews have painted. Hitler took the homes and their possessions, their synagogues and even even their nationality.; and now it’s their turn to do the same to other. I would think that they of all people would have heart, and know the sacrifices, would know the pain, feel the ache and understand the helplessness. But power and money is blinding. But I pray that they don’t destroy any churches or mosques .

    • That’s the biggest irony! A people who have known persecution in its grossest forms should not learn from their experiences and visit the same on another people who have done them no harm.

      This means that they never learnt anything from their own suffering and/or think that only their suffering is valid and only they matter. The rest of the world is just there to be used for their own selfish ends and are not as human as themselves.

      The myth of the ‘chosen’ people lives on…..
