This is the kind of news from Israel which somehow doesn't make it into the U.S. MSM.

Christians in Jerusalem want Jews to stop spitting on them

That's a far cry from being forbidden by law to practice your religion in public as in Saudi Arabia.

Baby Boo,

Christians in Palestine are citizens and they've been there way before any Israelis. Non-Muslims in KSA are expats: they can always find better conditions in neighbouring Gulf states. OTOH, can Muslims build a mosque in the Vatican?? Do they ask for it?? Do they make a big deal about it?? No. It's a place for the Christian religion and so is KSA for Islam and so wants the Israeli right, at least, for Israel to be for Judaism.

No disappointment at all. I was only curious.

So, you're ethnically Jew but not a 'believer' in Judaism, maybe?

Then why defend Israel? Do you think the answer to your people's suffering would be making others suffer?? If you were a religious Jew, I'd understand you want the fulfillment of the Torah promise.

I wonder how the surviving Jews who endured Chrystal Night (Kristallnacht November 9–10, 1938) in Germany would feel about this?
