A silent protest, a sign reading: “My right to pray in the Church of the Resurrection” At a house of a Christian. So you think it is about Muslim, Arab ? Wrong. During the Nakba 100.000 Christians were ethnically cleansed as well, and the remaining Christians which co-exist in peace with Muslim Palestinians in the West Bank undergo the same occupation and atrocities, violence and restrictions. Remember, even Jews who not conform with “Zionism” are transgressing the “Laws of Israel”. SO much for Zion & Goyim, They are even targeting their own people who not conform with the masterplan. | Naksa Day June 5, 2011 | The Photo is made By Ahmad Mesleh
