Thanks & appreciation about 60 Minutes story "Christians of the Holy Land"
Dear Bob Simon & CBS News,
As members of the indigenous Palestinian Christians citizens of the Holy Land, We are writing to express our deep thanks and appreciation with the 60 Minutes story "Christians of the Holy Land" which aired on April 22nd. This story exposed Zionist fabrications which are the greatest threats facing the Christians of the Holy land and Middle East. By focusing on the right story and blaming the right party, for the first time in the history of the American media, you have allowed a precious opportunity for understanding the truth.
Let us re-confirm some of the facts:
* During its creation in 1948, Palestinian Christian population has lost 75% it's population, of what is now the State of Israel, became refugees. Entire Christian villages were destroyed by Israel; and tens of thousands of Christians were expelled. Some areas of today’s west Jerusalem, such as Talbiya and Katamon, were home to thousands of Palestinian Christians whose homes were looted and private property confiscated.
* In the occupied West Bank, the Christian population has shrunk in absolute terms since the Israeli occupation in 1967.
* You can ask any Palestinian Christian who lives in the USA, Canada, Australia, Britain, Sweden, Lebanon, Jordan, Salvador and Chile... and elsewhere, why did they leave Palestine or who forced them to leave Palestine... the 95% answer will be the occupation, apartheid wall that cut through private property and isolate people from their families, checkpoints, curfews, land theft, home demolishes, revoking residency rights, bombing, restrictions on movement, bad economy, siege, blockade, road blocks, racism and hatred.
Just few weeks ago, thousands of Palestinian Christians from the Gaza Strip and the West Bank were once again denied their right to worship in the Church of the Holy Sepulcher for Easter celebrations. And, the ones who were lucky enough obtain a permit from the Israeli military to enter Jerusalem, they had to cross through humiliating racist checkpoints to cross from one part of their occupied homeland to another.
We still have to live with the irony that Christians tourists from all over the world will freely access the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, located just a few kilometers away from our homes, while we cannot enjoy the same right. As Easter brings its message of resurrection, we will be praying for the resurrection of justice for everyone on this land.
Based on our thousands of years as Christians in Palestine, we were appalled by the false allegations regarding Palestinian Christians made by the Zionist Ambassador Michael Oren. We were perplexed not because of his position, which has been part of the official Israeli Zionist narrative for many years, but by how openly they have distorted facts and misconstrued the plight of Palestinian Christians pursuing justice and peace.
He has wrongly propagated a cynical discourse misleadingly touting “Christian persecution by Muslims.
The Christians of the Holy land do face unprecedented threats. We are witnessing the collapse of the first and ancient Christian communities of Palestine.
Your choice to expose these threats and focus on the real issues that face the Christian population; you have proved your professionalism.
By succeeding to challenge to Zionist pressure, whom they claim to be the only democracy in the Middle East, while are working hard to silence others who do not agree with them, you have done a tremendous favor to all who truly care about the fate of the Middle East's Christians and especially Palestinian Christians.
Thanks for exposing how the Israel Lobby pressures media about Israel: Keep on reporting unbiased and uncompromised news on Israel-Palestine. Americans should have media that does not buckle under political pressure from powerful, wealthy foreign lobbies. Thank you CBS and Bob Simon for bringing the first "crack" in the wall of unfair bias that has pervaded American media for so long concerning Israel.
We are looking forward for more in-depth reports

FINAL TRIAL OF CHRISTIANS AND MUSLIMS TOGETHER - THE ONLY TRUE ISRAELO-CHRISTIANS THE PALESTINIANS
E10 on the Map.
(Ephron). et-Taiyibeh. 2 Chron 13:19: "And Abijah pursued after Jeroboam, and took cities from him, Beth-el with the towns thereof, and Jeshanah with the towns thereof, and Ephron with the towns thereof." Many scholars translate this as "Ephraim". This is also thought by many to be identical with Ophrah (`ophrah, Josh 18:23) and with Ephraim (`ephrayim, 2 Sam 13:23) which both have been identified within the town of eT Taiyibeh.
2 Sam. 13:23; John 11:54.
Nazareth is in the Galilee half way between the Mediterranean and the Sea of Galilee. Taybeh is to the south in the ancient area of Judea, Samaria, Perea.
John 11:54 Wherefore Jesus walked no more openly among the Jews, but he went into a country near the desert, unto a city that is called Ephrem [Ephraim-Taybeh], and there he abode with his disciples.
Christ teaches at
1 And *going out from thence, he went into his own country; and his disciples followed him.
2 And when the sabbath was come, he began to teach in the synagogue: and many hearing him were in admiration at his doctrine: saying: How came this man by all these things? and what wisdom is this that is given to him, and such mighty works as are wrought by his hands?
3 *Is not this the carpenter, the son of Mary, the brother of James (Yaqub) and Joseph (Yoseh), and Jude (Yehuda) and Simon (Shimon), are not also his sisters here with us? and they were scandalized in regard of him.
4 And Jesus said to them: *A prophet is not without honour, but in his own country, and in his own house, and among his own kindred.
5 And he could not do any miracle there, only that he cured a few that were sick, laying his hands upon them.
6 And he wondered because of their unbelief, and he went through the villages round about teaching.
7 *And he called the twelve; and began to send them two and two, and gave them power over unclean spirits.
8 And he commanded them that they should take nothing for their journey, but a staff only: no scrip, no bread, nor money in their purse,
9 *But to be shod with sandals, and that they should not put on two coats.
10 And he said to them: Wheresoever you shall enter into an house, there abide till you depart from that place.
11 And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear you, *going forth from thence, shake off the dust from your feet for a testimony to them.
12 And going forth they preached that they should repent:
13 And they cast out many demons, *and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them:

Gospel of Luke
3:34 Who was of Jacob, who was of Isaac, who was of Abraham [Abram], who was ofThare, who was of Nachor,
3:35 Who was of Sarug, who was of Ragau, who was ofPhaleg, who was of Heber, who was of
3:36 Who was of Cainan, who was of Arphaxad, who was ofSem, who was of Noe, who was of Lamech,
3:37 Who was of Mathusale, who was of Henoch, who was ofJared, who was ofMalaleel, who was of Cainan,
3:38 Who was of Henos, who was of Seth, who was of Adam, who was of God.
In the descent of the Messiah, Who is Only Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the Masoretic text - a contrivance by the Rabbinic Jews from first century A.D. completed by 900 A.D. to alter the meaning of the Bible, Cainan or Canaan is left out totally on purpose in Genesis Chapter 11. The meaning and reason is this. The intent and and purpose of God was always from the beginning and at the promise to Adam of the Redeemer to have the Messiah, Who is Only Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, to appear in the Holy Land, which is Canaan - Palestine. The original Canaanites, from whom today's Palestinians are descended were in the direct descent of the Messiah. The reason they were there is because God intended and in fact did take flesh of them in order to Redeem mankind. The ever jealous and blasphemous Pharisaic Jews took that out in the Masoretic text, but they could not touch it in the Septuagint nor in the New Testament texts. The reason the Rabbis took it out was to substitute themselves and their false messiah who is actually the Antichrist, Dajjal, in the place of Our Only Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They will fail eternally.
2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these; The first, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother; James the son of Zebedee, and John his brother; 3 Philip, and Bartholomew; Thomas, and Matthew the publican; James the son of Alphaeus, and (Jude) Lebbaeus, whose surname was Thaddaeus; 4 Simon the Canaanite, and Judas Iscariot, who also betrayed him.
Saint Simon the Cananite (ancient Palestinian) Apostle among the twelve.
Saint Simon later rejoined his brother, Saint Jude, in Persia, where they labored and died together. They converted the Zoroastrian king of Persia. They had invoked heavenly power over two tigers which had been rampaging in the country and and drove them off. The king and 60,000 Persians became Christians. The demons were expelled and their idolatrous temples were cast down. Churches were built there for the worship of the true God. The jealous Zoroastrians commanded the Apostles to offer sacrifice to the Sun, which of course the Apostles refused to do. The pagans then martyred the two Apostles of Christ.
