British Charities Use Christmas to Bash Israel
NGO Monitor/Yidwithlid ^ | 12/23/08 | Yidwithlid

Talk about destroying the "Christmas Spirit!" British NGOs are using Christmas as a cover to distribute/sell anti Israel and Anti-Semitic materials. These NGOs include War on Want, Amos Trust, and Pax Christi

For example they NGOs organized an event entitled, "Bethlehem Now: Nine Alternative Lessons and Carols for Palestine," involving "traditional carols with nontraditional lyrics, interspersed with poetry and prose readings, to highlight the current reality in the Holy Land."

The biased lyrics and themes were so "way out there" they lead to strong condemnations from Christian and Jewish community leaders.

Another group War on Want is promoting an "Alternative Gift" of donations to Stop the Wall (Palestinian Grassroots Anti-Apartheid Wall Coalition - PGAAWC). Which supports boycotts, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) movement. Of course they would NEVER mention the massacres and bombings that necessitated the fence being built

War on Want and Amos Trust are marketing Christmas cards depicting the security barrier and conflating Jesus with the Palestinians.

Those are just a few examples of the charities not so charitable work. The groups are doing their best to link the Palestinians and their cause as a modern version of the centuries of antisemitism and blood libels against the Jewish people. Read the Full Story from NGO Monitor below:

Our own Charles Henderson used Christmas to bash Catholism.
