Christians are going extinct in Jerusalem, attacked by radical Jews

Rate this post

In an essay in The Telegraph, Dec. 18, 2021, Francesco Patton, the leader of the Franciscan Friars in the Holy Land and throughout the Middle East, dolefully writes that Christians are on the verge of extinction in Jerusalem:

[O]nce we numbered 20 per cent of the population of Jerusalem, today the Christian community counts for less than 2 per cent.

In recent years, the lives of many Christians have been made unbearable by radical local groups with extremist ideologies. It seems that their aim is to free the Old City of Jerusalem from its Christian presence, even the Christian quarter. In the last years we suffered because of the desecration of our holy sites, the vandalization of our churches, offences against our priests, monks and worshippers. The frequency of these hate crimes leaves families and communities who have lived here for generations feeling unwelcome in their own homes.

But Patton does not identify who the “radical local groups with extremist ideologies” are.

The reader immediately thinks of radical Muslims.

But Patton provides a clue when he writes that “These radical groups do not represent the government or the people of Israel.”

A couple of alert Telegraph readers point us to these little-known and -publicized news reports:

  • In 2015, National Geographic reported on increasing “tension between Christians in Israel and a growing movement of Jewish extremists who seek to cleanse their nation of religious minorities.” Attacks against Christians “have become more brutal and more aggressive,” including an arson attack six months ago that left one Catholic monk hospitalized and caused nearly $1.8 million in damage.” The response from the Israeli government had been less than vigorous.
  • More recently, on Dec. 17, 2021, LifeSiteNews reports that “Throughout recent years…, there have been reports of radical Jewish individuals and groups in Jerusalem spitting on Christians, disrupting their prayer and likely firebombing their property, which Church authorities have routinely condemned…. According to a 2017 report, within an eight-year timeframe, 53 churches and mosques were vandalized in Israel and Palestinian territories under Israeli military occupation. Of those incidents there were only nine indictments and seven convictions, with 45 of those cases being closed.”

The Israeli government is not just limpid in its response to the attacks by radical Jewish groups against Christians, the government indirectly encourages the attacks via the 2018 Nation State Law.

The Nation State Law states that although non-Jews (including Christians and Arabs) “are no less citizens of this country than our Jewish brothers and sisters,” “According to this law, the State of Israel has legislated that the people whose ‘welfare and safety’ it is most concerned to promote and protect are limited to the Jewish citizens of the State of Israel.

Doesn’t this send a message to Jewish extremists that the Israeli government will not promote and protect the welfare and safety of Christians?

Meanwhile, the response from Pope Francis is the sound of crickets.

Pope Francis hides the Crucifix in his waist sash so as not to offend Israeli rabbis.

It flabberghasts me that the Pope would “hide” his crucifix while in company of Jewish rabbis.

In the Harry Potter witchery kids books, the leader of the bad guys is “He who cannot be named”. In the US we have the bad guy “they who cannot be named” It’s like a giant rat trap – say the name and you are beaten with baseball bats. The net result is, zero accountability for ‘them’ and no forgiveness for truth tellers.

I am not Catholic but this Pope is outrageous. Lady at Barnhardt.biz has posted a video The Bergoglian Antipapacy. I watched the start of Part one and she states “the reason people are confused and scandalized is because they are trying to reconcile reality to an objectively False Premise” among other things that Benedict never legally resigned

She gets deep into canonical law, which is not my knowledge base, but as I listened it was shocking how her description of what was happening in her church matched what is happening in America, with anti-President Biden, real President Trump who never conceded, and a luciferian masonic cadre steeped in decadence same as the Vatican.

Barnhardt’s video was made in 2018, when Trump was safely President and seemed to be making America clean again. I couldnt make it though her video, but it was shocking how in both cases, the same script twisted reality by not allowing people to say out loud that something was wrong, to install fake governance. When she made her video, she could not have known about the future stolen Presidency.

No wonder they clobbered Mel Gibson.

Ann Barnhardt is correct, and it’s becoming more obvious every day. Bergoglio is an anti-pope, probably the false prophet preceding the anti-Christ. That crucifix he’s hiding is satanic.https://www.barnhardt.biz/?s=Bernardin+pectoral+cross.
Abp. Vigano has also made the connection of the parallel Deep Church, just like the parallel Deep State US gov’t, that overthrew the legitimate elected one.

Throughout history, (you know, that which, if we do not learn we are doomed to repeat?), great civilizations and their governments/ all institutions fall not from without, but from within?

Thank you Dr.E for this important post. I did not realize that the Christians are suffering from such hateful treatment on a big scale. I am very sorrowful and also angry that our Pope would hide his crucifix. I must pray to Jesus about this matter.
