Christians who whine about wine
Is that a mosquito? Listen - that high, continuous whining noise. You can just hear it between bursts of missile fire from terrorists in Gaza, and the weeping of the family of Eliyahu Asheri, a harmless young man murdered by Palestinian terrorists simply because he is Jewish.
It is a mosquito, isn’t it? There it goes again.
It’s Leila Sansour of ‘Open Bethlehem’. Her continuous whine on one note is a never-ending complaint about the ‘wall’, built to defend Israelis from the terrorists who attack as continuously as she drones on in her high-pitched fashion. For some reason, she doesn’t mind Egypt’s ‘apartheid wall’, also built to keep Palestinians out.
Sansour is complaining that the Israeli Army is uprooting the ‘ancient olive trees’ (they are always ancient, aren’t they? - no young stock among the Palestinian olive trees) in the Bethlehem area, in order to defend people from their violent and vicious neighbours. As usual, olive trees belonging to Palestinians are more important than Jewish human lives, although you can always replace an uprooted tree. If Sansour is good Catholic, then she should be pro-life, and sympathise with the aims of the 'wall'.
Unfortunately, these self-centred, childish people care more about losing their weekend picnic spaces.
It is also one of Bethlehem’s few recreational sites, a place for local weekend breaks and longer holidays.
Another ‘victim’ of the ‘wall’ is this place:
The convent of Cremisan was founded in 1883 by Salesians on ruins of a Byzantine monastery from the 7th century. The community make wine from grapes grown on their own land and from Beit Jala, Beit Shemesh, and Hebron area.
A convent dating back to only 1883? Pretty young by Holy Land standards. And they make wine? Hamas will soon put a stop to that anyway. They are currently distracted by other matters, like the destruction of Israeli, but once they turn their attention to making ‘Palestine’ into an oppressive Islamist country, then it will be goodbye to wine-making - and goodbye to nuns. Indeed, it may be goodbye to Christians.
