|Yet another christian bigot allowed to disseminate his anti-semitism and intimidate christians from within Israel|
That our brave christian arab Mona Lisa and her sister are not alone, that there are more christians interested in doing their bit to help the land that protects them and their community is laudable. It makes bigoted clerics like Father Attallah Hanna fulminate against them from the pulpit.
That's all well and good, but I wonder how many other countries allow enemies to run around in time of war intimidating citizens into not doing their duty by their country?
If this religious bigot who hates the fact that christians want to serve in Israel's army wishes to rant and rave in his incitement against the country which gives him refuge, then he should be shipped over the border to another country where he'll be happier and more welcome. He could go to Lebanon, Syria or Egypt. He should be given the opportunity to acquaint himself with the reasons why christians in Israel love the country and wish to serve in its army. The bigoted bishop could ask copts why their daughters are kidnapped and forcibly converted? He could ask Syrians why the christians of Homs packed their bags and left so hurriedly? He could investigate the murder of monk in Syria last week. Why stay in Israel the country he hates so much?

Israel salutes its brave muslims and christians who show their loyalty to the state and jit suffers those who do not whilst extending to them all their rights.
But those who act seditiously in an attempt to force israeli citizens away from doing their duty must be punished or shown the door just as happens in any other country.
Will Israel finally begin to show that it's tired of its hospitality being abused?
Father Hanna slams attempts to recruit Christian Arabs in Israeli army
OCCUPIED JERUSALEM, (PIC)-- Father Attallah Hanna, the archbishop of Sebastia in Jerusalem, strongly denounced the Israeli army for its attempts to recruit Christian Palestinians from the 1948 occupied lands.
Father Hanna said those who participated in suspicious meetings with Israelis to encourage the Christian young men of Palestine to join the army do not represent the Palestinian Christians and their national affiliation and only represent themselves.
He stressed that the Palestinian Christians are Arabs and an essential part of the Arab nation, describing these Israeli attempts as a grave conspiracy aimed at uprooting the Christian Palestinians from their national identity.
The Israeli war ministry organized recently a meeting in Nazareth Illit city between a number of Christian clergymen and Israeli officers from the army and its intelligence to urge the Christian Arabs to join the army and fight in its ranks.
For its part, the Islamic Movement in the 1948 occupied lands warned the Arab young men of falling into the trap of the Israeli attempts to Israelize them and create sectarian conflicts between the different spectra of the Palestinian people inside the Israeli occupied territories.
The Islamic Movement also urged the Arab political parties and movement in the 1948 occupied lands to take active role within the Arab committee against military and civil service in order to pool the efforts to confront Israel's attempts to recruit Palestinian young men.
