Israeli Propaganda Hits a New Low

Every now and then, one reveals more than one intended. And gets caught in the act. Earlier today, there was a bit of a kerfluffle when Israel’s embassy in Ireland posted the following on its Facebook account:

A thought for Christmas…If Jesus and mother Mary were alive today, they would, as Jews without security, probably end up being lynched in Bethlehem by hostile Palestinians. Just a thought….

Yeah, that’s a thought alright- a perverse one intended to paint the Palestinians in the worst of all possible lights.

Then, of course, the backpeddling-

It was removed from the page in a couple of hours, and replaced with this:

To whom it may concern: An image of Jesus and Mary with a derogatory comment about Palestinians was posted without the consent of the administrator of the Facebook page. We have removed the post in question immediately. Apologies to anyone who may have been offended. Merry Christmas!

Ah yes, Merry Christmas…

  1. Did you see any of the meme images that have started to circulate in response to this? I shared on one my blog: http://www.patheos.com/blogs/exploringourmatrix/2012/12/jesus-family-and-modern-bethlehem.html

    It would have been more correct to say that the Haredim would do the lynching.
