A Merry Mouqawamist Christmas to all! Sitting atop the list for Christmas greetings is definitely the Syrian Arab Republic, which is seeing celebrations of Jesus Christ’s (A.S.) birth in its second city Aleppo for the first time in almost five years. If it wasn’t for the Syrian Arab Army, Hizbullah and their allies, Halab would still be stuck suffering under Zio-Imperialist-backed Al-Qaeda goons for only ALLAH (SWT) knows how long. Blessings to the Christians of Lebanon, who celebrate Christmas today because Hizbullah saved their nation from the Takfiris’ designs with its decisive intervention on the Syrian front. Of course, special holiday wishes for the homeland, beautiful, electric, ancient Mesopotamia, especially to the Assyrian Christians in and around Mosul who are celebrating ‘Isa al-Masih’s (A.S.) born-day for the first time in over two years. And it’s all thanks to the Iraqi Islamic Resistance. Prayers are needed for the Christians of the Islamic Republic of Iran, who are celebrating under the full protection of the Islamic Revolution, with moujahideen from the Basij and the Revolutionary Guard Corps watching over Christmas processions across the country, particularly in Tehran. You won’t see ANYTHING of the sort in that backwards, hateful, British-birthed monstrosity known as Saudi Arabia.

Much time is spent rightfully saluting Islamic Liberationist forces in Syria and Iraq for protecting Christians, their sanctities and upholding their traditions like Christmas in the face of the hateful, destructive Wahhabi-Takfiri scourge, but what about the Christians standing with Muslims on our holiest days? Salutes just as massive are in order for them too. Pictured here are the Orthodox Christians of occupied Palestine celebrating Mawlid al-Nabawi, the birthday of the Holy Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W.), with their Muslim brethren. This gesture of solidarity and communal harmony comes as a transhistorical ode to Abyssinian Christian King Ashama ibn Abjar (also known as Armah), who granted asylum to the Holy Prophet (S.A.W.W.) and the persecuted early Muslims, as well as an ode to Muhammad (S.A.W.W.) himself, who defended Christians, their religious art, their churches and upheld their traditions through a series of unbroken covenants and treaties from Najran to Egypt. Not to mention, it is a defiant act of Muslim-Christian Co-Resistance in the face of the Dajjalic-Jewish-Zionist occupation.

JERUSALEM (AFP) — Vandals have smashed gravestones at a Maronite Christian cemetery in a village near occupied Palestine’s northern border with Lebanon, Israeli police said on Wednesday.
Police opened an investigation after receiving a report about damage to a number of graves at the Christian cemetery in Kufr Birim, spokeswoman Luba Samri said, indicating that the tombstones were “broken and displaced.”
Kufr Birim is a derelict Palestinian village whose inhabitants were evicted by Israeli forces 1948 six months after Israel was established and never allowed to return. The village was almost totally razed by the Israeli army in 1953. Continue reading Jewish vandals attack Christian graveyard in northern Palestine

The only Palestinian Orthodox Christian bishop in the Holy Land speaking about the suffering of Palestinian Christians, their unity with Muslims in the Palestinian struggle, about Orthodox Christian martyrs, and Ukraine.
Archbishop Sebastia Theodosios (Atallah Hanna), 49, is the only Orthodox Christian archbishop from Palestine stationed in Jerusalem and the Holy Land, while all other bishops of the Patriarchate of Jerusalem are Greeks. The Israeli authorities had detained him several times, or stopped him at the border, and taken away his passport. Among all Jerusalem clergymen he is the only one who has no privilege of passing through the VIP gate in the airport – because of his nationality. “For the Israeli authorities, I am not a bishop, but rather a Palestinian,” explains his Beatitude. When talking on the phone he says a lot of words you would normally hear from a Muslim: “Alhamdulillah, Insha’Allah, Masha’Allah”. He speaks Arabic, and the Arabic for ‘god’ is Allah, whether you are a Christian or a Muslim. Continue reading Archbishop Atallah Hanna: We Palestinian Christians say Allahu Akbar

n 2012, then-Israeli ambassador to the U.S. Michael Oren penned an op-ed for The Wall Street Journal in which he claimed that “Christians in [Gaza and the West Bank] suffer the same plight as their co-religionists throughout the region.”
While the diplomat was looking to capitalise on more recent developments in the Middle East – like Netanyahu did at the UN, with his “Hamas is ISIS” mantra – Oren’s claim that Christian Palestinians are being driven out by Muslims is a familiar one.
Israel and its supporters have tried to use Christian Palestinians for propaganda point-scoring for some time. For example, back in 1997, and during Netanyahu’s first stint as prime minister, Israeli media cited government sources for reports about the alleged “brutal and relentless persecution” facing Christians in Palestinian Authority-controlled areas.
