Christmas Cards from Israel, Paris and Australia

While Australia's  biggest mosque put  a  "Fatwa"  on Christmas, and only one political leader in France, (Marine Le Pen) wished their Christian citizens "Joyeux Noel", the message from Israel's Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu was there, unprompted, in time, inclusive and showed, once again, what a real political leader should be like.

"...While Netanyahu takes flack for speaking the truth about Islamic treatment of Christians throughout the Middle East, Israel continues to be a beacon of hope for Christians, Jews, and Muslims alike who wish to live in peace, without fear of oppression based on religion. Were Jesus alive today, by contrast, he’d have to take a bulletproof bus out of Palestinian-controlled Bethlehem simply to avoid being killed or imprisoned for his Judaism"writes sheikyermami.

"Christmas Day"

The north wind is tossing the leaves.
The red dust is over the town; 
The sparrows are under the eaves,
And the grass in the paddock is brown; 
As we lift up our voices and sing,
To the Christ-child the heavenly King. 

Quote of the day:
"If the Nativity were retold today, Hamas would kill Baby Jesus because he was Jewish."
Who said that? I lost the source but perhaps it was said in the first person ;)
