|Pas en notre nom. Pas en Israël.|
Christy Anatas, une chrétienne palestinienne de Bethléhem, co-fondatrice de l'association Emmaus, résume bien la situation de tolérance religieuse qui règne en Israël: "Israël ne nous tue et ne nous menace pas en raison de nos opinions. Les Palestiniens si." On peut supposer qu'un journal comme La Croix, ne relayera pas les propos de Christy, devrait le savoir, au contraire La Croix ne fait que dénoncer Israël.

"[...] What saddens me is that again, the suffering of millions of Israelis is not being highlighted, as if they are not human beings. In the last week alone, over 750 rockets have rained on them yet the world, and my people, are not regarding this as a crime against humanity simply because no Israelis have been killed.
Under the Geneva Convention, firing missiles indiscriminately at civilian targets is a crime against humanity. They have not considered how Israel cares for her citizens by building a network of bomb shelters, reinforcing buildings and public structures and providing early warning systems for her people.
In contrast, the leaders of Gaza, given so much aid by the West, appear to have spent much of it on building and preparing for war, rather than helping or protecting the people. Sadly, militants hide like cowards behind civilians, using public/civilian buildings as cover for launching rockets in order to draw Israeli fire. Women and children are called to be jihadists on rooftops and pay with their lives, defying the IDF’s warnings to evacuate. It breaks my heart to see the one called the enemy, work so hard to avoid collateral-civilian damage, whereas the other, my own people, think of them as a credible sacrifice for their cause.
We Palestinians, whether Fatah, Hamas, Muslim or Christian, must accept responsibility for our actions and those among us who seek to perpetuate violence. We must recognize that violence only leads to more violence and must admit we are committing war crimes ourselves. The consequence of our actions is that we are reaping what we have sown. Israel’s military might, causing so much damage in Gaza, is a consequence, not a first strike reaction, to the provocation of those militants among us who for years have launched thousands of rockets onto Israel.
Violence can never be justified, and what Israel has found herself forced into doing is wrong. I challenge anyone to find a nation who would tolerate what Israel has had to from radicalized people who seek to destabilize the entire Middle-East. I call upon world leaders to force the Palestinian leadership to address this serious matter. I call on my people to accept responsibility for their actions and restrain those among us who chose violence over diplomacy. Instead of constantly looking at the speck in Israel’s eye, we must remove the plank from our own. If we truly want change, and care for our children who are dying as innocent victims in this conflict, we must be the change we want to see." (Via Andrew Bostom)
Intolérance musulmane envers les Chrétiens à Nazareth
Cette affiche se trouve à Nazareth à proximité de l'église de l'Annonciation. On peut imaginer le tollé que cela provoquerait si des Juifs placardaient de pareils avertissements dans les rues. Comme l'écrit Simply Jews, on dirait que les Israéliens ont peur des musulmans de Nazareth et n'osent pas faire retirer ce message détestable. Et les chrétiens acceptent!

“O people of the Scripture (Christians)! Do not exceed the limits in your religion. Say nothing but the truth about Allah (The One True God). The Christ Jesus, Son of Mary was only a Messenger of God and His word conveyed to Mary and a spirit created by Him. So believe in God, and His Messengers and do not say: ‘Three gods (trinity)’ Cease! it will be better for you. Indeed, Allah is the One and Only God. His Holiness is far above having a son.” (Quran 4:171)
