Israeli security forces arrested a Bethlehem-based Hamas terror cell that carried out a suicide bombing attack on a bus in Jerusalem in April and had plans to carry out further suicide attacks, the Shin Bet (Israel's Security Agency) cleared for publication on Sunday.
The plight of Palestinian Christians does not interest the international community, because Israel cannot be blamed for demolishing the antiquities. If the current policy against Christians persists, the day will come when no Christians will be left in Bethlehem.
Operating on unspecified allegations of "civil charges," Palestinian police arrested the spiritual leader of the Syrian Orthodox Church in a move that appears to be the continued persecution of Christians by the Palestinian Authority.
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.
