Every Israeli slight against Christians, whether real or perceived, becomes the topic of international headlines.
Take for instance the occasions of anti-Christian graffiti scrawled on churches in Jerusalem by a handful of radical Jewish youth. As upsetting as those incidents were, no real harm was done, and both the authorities and local Jewish community were quick to stand with the wronged churches.
And yet, Israel was falsely lambasted in the mainstream media as a place unwelcoming to and even hostile toward Christians.
So, it’s more than a little curious that a far more severe trial being faced by Christian nuns in nearby Bethlehem is being all but ignored.
