Unholy Jesus

If you go to this page at Itamar Marcus' Palestine Media Watch you will see, among other things, this caricature of Jesus in the service of Pal. propaganda.





I looked at it and said to myself, I've seen that motif before. I have in my possession three postcards used as propaganda during the 1936-1939 Arab violent disturbances and sure enough, here is Jesus, again, in the service of the Pals.:-





I'd love to hear from my Christian readers about this manipulation.

wasn't Jesus Christian crucified with two petty criminals - it must be them they're referring to

This misrepresentation of Jesus, the cross, and the geographical state of Israel is just incorrect, wrong, and offensive! To re-write history, which seems to be a common ploy in the PA media war. I, for one, do not like my religion being so misused! Jesus was a Jew. The name of the land then, as know, was ISRAEL.

In 1991, I was at a press conference conducted as part of the Madrid (you should excuse the term) Peace Conference. Hanan Ashrawi (btw, where is she?) spoke of Jesus as being a Palestinian. And the journalists swallowed it all. Later, in appearances before Christian audiences, I always remark that I love speaking to Christians because when I use the terms Judea and Samaria, my audience knows what I am referring to and have no compunctions for, as it is written in Acts 8:1, "and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria".

I'm sad to see Jesus portrayed like this.

You should then protest to the Pals.
