Mary, I was in the Church of the Nativity 2 years ago. It's in Palestinian territory. There is a large guard outpost and a 20-25 foot wall separating that territory from Israel. Our Israeli Tour Guide and Bus Driver drove us to the wall where we switched buses. They stayed behind for fear of their lives because the Palestinians hate Israili's so vehemently. We had a different bus along with a Palestinian guide and bus driver while in Bethlehem.
I will say this...in the places I visited in the Holy Land and Jordan, the muslims were extremely friendly and outgoing with my group and we were traveling as a Christian group, not just a mixed tourist group. Back in Jerusalem when we were walking on the outside of the walls of the old city (the Temple Mount), a Israeli child came over and struck one of our group members with a shoe. It didn't hurt, but in Israel, it is a huge insult to be struck with a shoe. There are those in Israel who have no love for Christians. There was never any mob at any time taunting us, just this one lone incident.
Our tour guide was a Messianic Jew. She emphasized how hard life was for her and her family, being Jewish and trusting in Jesus. They are outcasts in their community.
I saw arabs, likely Palestinians, all over Jerusalem. I didn't see even one being harrassed by Israeli police or anyone else. When prayer time came, they would take out their prayer rugs, turn their backsides to the Temple Mount and pray towards Mecca. No one stopped them or interfered with them.
The things written in this article by Ray Hanania are definitely not the experience I had while in the Holy Land. I'd have to say that about 99.5% of this article is propaganda and a lie. Always keep in mind, anyone who is not a muslim is an infidel and the quran plainly states that lying to infidels is acceptable.
