Perhaps while the World Council of Churches, the Presiding Bishop of the Episcopal Church, the U.S. Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (see previous post) are calling on Israel to stop being mean to Hamas, the could address this item reported by Caroline Glick of the Jerusalem Post (originally reported by the London-based Arab daily Al Hayat):
Both Iran and its Hamas proxy in Gaza have been busy this Christmas week showing Christendom just what they think of it. But no one seems to have noticed.
On Tuesday, Hamas legislators marked the Christmas season by passing a Shari’a criminal code for the Palestinian Authority. Among other things, it legalizes crucifixion.
Hamas’s endorsement of nailing enemies of Islam to crosses came at the same time it renewed its jihad. Here, too, Hamas wanted to make sure that Christians didn’t feel neglected as its fighters launched missiles at Jewish day care centers and schools. So on Wednesday, Hamas lobbed a mortar shell at the Erez crossing point into Israel just as a group of Gazan Christians were standing on line waiting to travel to Bethlehem for Christmas.
Words fail me.
