Radical Islamic Palestinians have always been the greatest threat to Palestinian Christians

 

After credible threats to target Christians & their holy sites by Muslim extremists within the Palestinian territories, Abbas’ PA decided to cancel the Christmas celebrations, which, as many were led to believe, had nothing to do with Israel or the recent violence against Jews.
