Jesus was a Palestinian?

This is interesting. According to Britain's The Independent, Jesus was actually a martyred Palestinian, and Christmas is the celebration of the birth pains of a Palestinian refugee by the name of Mary.

Go figure.

Ynet News - An anti-Israel article , which appeared last week in a British newspaper, the Independent, claimed Christmas was a celebration of the "birth pains of a Palestinian refugee in Bethlehem" (Mary), before launching into an attack on Israel 's checkpoints in the West Bank.

According to the article, written by British columnist Johann Hari, during Christmas "a third of humanity will gather to celebrate the birth pains of a Palestinian refugee in Bethlehem - but two millennia later, another mother in another glorified stable in this rubble-strewn, locked-down town is trying not to howl."

It added: "Fadia Jemal is a gap-toothed 27-year-old with a weary, watery smile. 'What would happen if the Virgin Mary came to Bethlehem today? She would endure what I have endured,' she says."

The article alleges that Jemal lost her baby due to a "road… blocked by Israeli soldiers, who said nobody was allowed to pass until morning."

Quoting Jemal, the article added: "When I see the (Israeli) soldiers I keep thinking - what did my baby do to Israel?" Hari described Palestinian women as "21st century Marys" who were being "terrorized."

Can't wait to read how they've revised what really happened in the story of Chanukah. My guess is that it was actually a courageous Palestinian victory over the Judeo-Greek oppressors.
