Persecuted Christians In Israel Are Being Ethnically Cleansed. Is Anybody Listening?

By Eric Striker

Prior to Israel’s founding as a Jewish state in 1948, Christians made up 20% of Jerusalem’s population. Since then, the population has experienced a staggering decline, counting a presence of 2% in the birthplace of Jesus.

The consensus among right-wing Christians has generally been that Israel is primarily hostile towards Muslims who attack them just for being Jewish. This is a manufactured opinion produced by media disinformation and omission. History and currently unfolding realities show that the Zionist movement is hostile to all non-Jews in the world.

Following the Haganah’s (which would later become the Israel Defense Force) implementation of the Dalet Plan (also known as Plan D) in 1947, Zionist militants violently expelled 750,000 non-Jews from Israel in preparation for the state’s founding.

The main tool used by Israeli forces in their ethnic cleansing campaign was to engage in acts of gratuitous mass murder and then publicize the actions widely to scare others to leave their homes and belongings and flee for their lives.

The infamous Deir Yassein massacre, where Lehi and Irgun terrorists burned, raped and machine gunned 250 defenseless Arab women, children, elderly and disabled people who had previously signed a non-aggression agreement with the Haganah is one well-known episode in the genocidal policy.

But this savagery was not limited to attacks on Muslims. In the village of Eilaboun, the Israeli Army stormed a Church full of young Christians waving white flags, lined them up, then executed them in cold blood. The rest of the village was expelled to Lebanon.

Today, what’s left of the Christian population in Israel is multi-ethnic, with many Armenians and Greeks among the Arab and Jewish natives. All are treated equally as poorly. They are primarily Catholic and Orthodox Christians who have lived in the area for centuries, going back to the time of Christ. They were able to survive the many changes in ownership of Palestine throughout this time, including the Ottoman Empire, but their existence has never been existentially threatened until now.

Unlike Muslims, Christians in Israel do not generally partake in organized resistance against the government. This spirit of pacificism has not been of much use when interacting with the Zionist regime and the rabid Jewish population. The Israeli state has pressured Christians through both institutional and criminal means to leave since its founding, but the renewed and unprovoked offensive has caught the community off-guard.

The most recent Benjamin Netanyahu government has expelling Gentiles from Jerusalem at the top of their agenda, particularly in and around the Jaffa Gate. The Kahanist “Jewish Power” party’s Itamar Ben-Gvir now serves as Minister of National Security, which puts him in charge of the country’s police force and has allowed him to institute his anti-Christian agenda unimpeded.

Ben-Gvir makes no secret of his pious dedication to the teachings of the Talmud. In 2015, a group of Jewish terrorists belonging to the Lehava group burned down the sacred site where Christians believe Jesus multiplied fish and bread loaves. Ben-Gvir personally took up the arsonist’s legal defense and embarked on a campaign to present them as folk heroes. The new minister was even able to win acquittals for some of the suspects on dubious grounds.

Predictably, Jewish attacks on Christians have increased since Ben-Gvir became the nation’s top law enforcement official. Just in the last few months, emboldened Jewish fanatics have deployed a clearly organized strategy of intimidation and terrorizing Christians, such as in the case of the Church at the Tomb of the Virgin Mary, where Jews stormed the Church and began assaulting the priest and worshippers.

In another instance, an American Jew visiting Israel walked into a Catholic Church and toppled a statue of Jesus, then began furiously smashing it with a hammer. Christian-owned businesses are regularly attacked by groups of Jewish settlers waving Israeli flags who demand they sell them their shops and leave the country. Christian priests who dare walk out in public are sucker punched and spit on daily. No matter where in Israel Christians live, their chapels and visible manifestations of faith are under a permanent state of siege at the hands of the Jewish majority.

The Jewish treatment of Gentiles in Israel is a long-standing problem. Jews are systematically taught to hold Christians in contempt in Israeli schools, and complaints from leading Christian figures on this matter have been ignored. Jews now have a place where they can openly practice the violent racial supremacism inherent to Judaism, which shows how the group that preaches tolerance and multi-culturalism in Western nations behaves when they are the majority.

What makes the current dynamic unique is that hate motivated violence is getting more brazen. Israelis do not appear to care anymore about what the outside world thinks as videos showing them beating up Catholic priests or Orthodox monks in packs circulate online. Typically, these crimes occur in broad daylight, but suspects engaging in these crimes are seldom arrested. Local Christians suspect the police may even have advanced knowledge of some of these attacks, as they generally do not arrive until after the violent incidents are over and the perpetrators have fled. In the rare instance that culprits are detained, they are instantly released.

The Zionist government does not shy from playing an official role in fanning the flames. The Greek Orthodox Church recently complained that the Israeli police has decreed that they can’t host more than 1,800 people at their Easter festivities in Jerusalem this year, even though the event traditionally draws 10,000 worshippers. A bill in the Knesset last March that would jail those preaching the Bible in the land of its birth was narrowly defeated after scandalous global headlines forced even Evangelical Zionists in America to comment.

Israel’s Christians and the Church stewards of Christian holy sites have found few allies internationally. So far, only the governments of Russia and Jordan have confronted the Israeli government on the treatment of the Christian minority. Various Muslim groups, such as Hamas and the Al-Quds Foundation (which is sanctioned by the US Treasury Department for supposed links to Hamas), have also taken up their cause, calling on Muslims to defend Christian sites alongside Islamic ones in Jerusalem’s Old City.

Pope Francis, perceived as left-wing on most issues, has been mealy-mouthed about Israel’s attacks on the human rights of Catholics. In 2015, Francis shocked the world by declaring that those who believe power in Israel should be shared with Muslims and Christians are “anti-Semites.” A year later, Francis echoed the theology of many Evangelical leaders, by stating that God believes the land of the Israeli political entity belongs to second and third generation Ashkenazi and Sephardic Jews immigrants.

When remarking upon state-backed Jewish mob violence in East Jerusalem, Francis condemned the violence by morally equivocating all sides in general terms, while refusing to make special note of the oppression his own followers are facing.

Francis is thorough and repetitive in condemning imaginary anti-Semitism all over the world, but when it comes to Jews vandalizing and destroying sacred Christian sites, the Pope sees no and hears no evil.

America’s most influential Protestant figure, the $100 million dollar preacher Joel Osteen, is even more shameless. In a recent interview with Bibi Netanyahu, Osteen fawned over the Jewish dictator, calling him the “modern day David” while claiming “Israel feels like the most peaceful place in the world.” Some outraged reactions to the interview questioned whether Osteen even knows that there are Christians in Israel, a fact the prosperity gospel televangelist responds to by feigning incredulity.

Coverage in America’s vast Christian conservative apparatus of this situation has been studiously limited, even as more mainstream publications are forced to report on it. There are many established Christian groups and charities dedicated to promoting war with Iran and supporting IDF, but virtually nothing dedicated to protecting Christians from Jewish aggression.

Jewish terrorism does not exist in a vacuum. Diaspora Jews in the United StatesEurope, and beyond are directly funding organized attacks against Christians, Muslims and non-Jews in general. Sadistic illegal squatter “price tag attacks” are bankrolled by wealthy international Jews with the full knowledge and sometimes support of their respective governments.

There is only one policy our government must take to combat Zionism. It is point 14 of the National Justice Party platform:

We will declare Israel a rogue state and exporter of terrorism. The national rights of the Palestinian people must be respected.

Hollywood Actor Mark Ruffalo Says It is Time To Sanction Israeli Government

By Palestine Chronicle

American actor and director Mark Ruffalo strongly condemned calls by Israeli Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich to wipe out the Palestinian town of Huwwara, north of the occupied West Bank.

The 55-year-old producer and actor took to his official Twitter page to say that Israeli officials in the right-wing government led by Benjamin Netanyahu should be denied entry visas to the United States.

“They are saying the quiet part out loud. It’s time to sanction the new hard right-wing government of Netanyahu and deny them visas for their calls of genocide,” he tweeted.

“This is why Amnesty International calls it apartheid and why it is apartheid,” Ruffalo concluded.

The US State Department condemned Smotrich’s comments and said the remarks were “repugnant, irresponsible, and disgusting.”

A growing number of advocacy groups are urging the US to deny Smotrich entry to the country.

Israel Kills Veteran Al Jazeera Correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh

By Yumna Patel

Israeli forces shot and killed Palestinian journalist and veteran Al Jazeera correspondent Shireen Abu Akleh in the head while she was covering an Israeli raid on the Jenin Refugee Camp.

Abu Akleh and a group of other journalists, who were wearing blue flak jackets and helmets marked as ‘PRESS’, were stationed near an entrance to Jenin refugee camp when they came under fire from Israeli forces.

Abu Akleh was shot in the head, in an exposed area below her ear, killing her instantly. Another Palestinian journalist, Ali Samoudi, was shot in the back. He was treated at a local hospital and was reported to be in stable condition.

Video footage from the hospital shows Abu Akleh’s colleagues crying out to her “wake up”, as her body lay in front of them.

Abu Akleh was a Palestinian dual citizen. US Ambassador to Israel Tom Nides said in a statement that it was “very sad to learn of the death of American and Palestinian journalist Shireen Abu Akleh… I encourage a thorough investigation into the circumstances of her death.”

Palestinian lawmaker and former prisoner Khalida Jarrar mourned Abu Akleh’s killing, telling Al Jazeera: “Shireen was always my voice from the prison cells…Shireen was our voice. It is unbelievable. It is a crime, it is all clear – intentional and direct targeting. She was targeted. It’s clear.”


“Shireen Abu Akleh was a witness to the crimes of the enemy for many years, as well as a witness to the oppression of the Palestinian people and the daily crimes, massacres, aggressions and violations that they suffer, both in terms of the (oppressed) population and the (desecrated) holy places. And today, she has become the oppressed martyr, the victim of one of these crimes.

“The strongest message in the martyrdom of this oppressed woman is that she is a Christian. This message declares to all that Israel, the temporary usurping entity, has attacked both Muslims and Christians, both the Palestinian people and the peoples of the region, has attacked both Muslim and Christian holy places, and has killed, oppressed, expelled, imprisoned and destroyed the homes of both Muslims and Christians.” – Hassan Nasrallah, Hezbollah Secretary General

Harvard Law School ‘Apartheid’ Report Leaves Israel’s Defenders Speechless

By Steve France

In case you missed it, Harvard Law School’s International Human Rights Clinic (IHRC) lately issued a report that finds Israel’s treatment of Palestinians on the West Bank amounts to the crime of apartheid. The study, “Apartheid in the Occupied West Bank: A Legal Analysis of Israel’s Actions” came out on February 28 in the wake of five longer, wider-ranging, apartheid reports published since 2020 – and just before the UN Special Rapporteur on Human Rights in the occupied Palestinian territories published another apartheid report on March 21.

Prepared by the law school’s human rights clinic in partnership with Ramallah-based Addameer Prisoner Support and Human Rights Association, the report was released without fanfare and received minimal press coverage. And it has, so far, drawn no public condemnation by the Israel lobby. The state of Israel reacted only with a perfunctory, non-substantive statement by its UN ambassador, Gilad Erdan, that “those who wrote the report on behalf of Harvard . . . decided to delegitimize the Jewish state because of their antisemitic views.”

Although only 22 pages long, the report includes 130 footnotes that deftly back up the text and let readers drill down further. The narrow focus shines a searching light on the customized legal instruments and processes implemented since 1967 to deprive West Bank Palestinians of their human, civil and political rights.

Evil Israelis targeting Palestinian children

The precise description of the lawfare by which Israel has, with impunity, intimidated, confused, humiliated, bullied, imprisoned, tortured and killed Palestinians since 1967 generates a compelling cumulative impact. Individual items in the litany are not in themselves news but to see them depicted in their coordinated entirety is to see how the Israeli machine of injustice does its anti-human work.

Israeli Planes Spray Farmlands Close To Gaza With Toxic Herbicides

By PressTV

Israeli planes have reportedly sprayed toxic chemical substances and dangerous pesticides on farmlands near the Gaza Strip as the Tel Aviv regime presses ahead with its acts of aggression against the besieged and impoverished Palestinian coastal enclave.

According to London-based online news outlet Middle East Eye, Israeli crop duster planes have been spraying the area in close proximity to the fence separating the Gaza Strip from the Israeli-occupied territories for four days in a row.

The report, citing eyewitnesses, added that the frequency of the spray is determined by the direction of the wind, and that the spray stops when it rains, or when the wind blows “in the opposite direction”.

“They only start spraying along the fence when the wind blows west, in the direction of the Palestinian lands, in order to allow the herbicides to cover a larger area inside our lands,” Palestinian farmer Youssef Abu Maghadid said.

“But when the wind starts blowing east, they immediately stop because it would harm them.”

Rights groups state that Israel has been conducting aerial herbicide spraying near Palestinian farmlands for several years, and the activity is typically carried out “without prior notification or warning to Palestinian farmers”.

Israel carries out the spraying when the wind is blowing westward, which transports the chemicals “deep into Gaza”, reaching distances “as far as 1,200 meters into the Strip”, activists say.

“Since 2014, the clearing and bulldozing of agricultural and residential lands by the Israel military close to the eastern border of Gaza has been complemented by the unannounced aerial spraying of crop-killing herbicides,” the research group Forensic Architecture found in 2019.
