Re: Amar, Christian Arabs Are Victimized Twice

Truly, any Arab that are Christians are victimized twice because they are Arabs or Christians. An example to this fact is that this weekend a man who with family who do olive wood carvings from the city where Jesus was born, Bethlehem, because of the recent conflicts of the last few years. Each year, for the last three years, he comes to my parish church to sell hand carved from olive wood religious articles for purchase by parishoners. This man is an Arab Christian from that city, which has has suffered the loss of its huge pilgrimage tourists. That man has the courage to have to deal with all the hassles of getting both himself and his products through the many checkpoints from the West Bank to America. So what you have posted is so spot on, Amar.
