0202 – Points of View from Jerusalem


"A request to our Muslim brothers and friends: Allow our Christian brothers take their pictures with the Christmas trees. Give them the opportunity to rejoice on their holiday."

– Shuafat Refugee Camp

[Translation of Selected Comments:]

– "They take their children as if it is their holiday. God that's embarrassing.."

– "Originally Christmas was not a Christian holiday, it was a pagan custom. Nevertheless, Muslims are happy to take their pictures by the tree."

– "It is blasphemy. May god help us."

– "That would be like seeing a Christian getting he's picture taken next to a lamb for the Eid" [Eid Al-Adha, the Muslim Sacrifice holiday]

– "Let them take the pictures. Maybe Santa will come at night and give them veal as a gift 😂😂😂"
