"Church of England anti-Semitic Carols"
Left: Carol services at London churches
Ron Prosor, Israel's Ambassador in Britain lashed out against the Church of England for having approved an anti-Israel carol that was sung as part of a service, according to the Times of London.
The carol was part of an alternative event called "Bethlehem Now: Nine Alternative Lessons and Carols" that took place at the end of November in the Wren church of St James' in Central London, and was organized by anti-Israeli occupation campaigners, including one liberal Jewish group.
On the twelth day of Christmas, my true love sent to me:
Eleven homes demolished
Ten wells obstructed
Nine sniper towers
Eight gunships firing
Seven checkpoints blocking
Six tanks a-rolling
Five settlement rings.
Four falling bombs
Three trench guns
Two trampled doves
And an uprooted olive tree.
The carols were rewritten by an unnamed Jewish parody writer. The carol Once in Royal David's City was altered to say "Once in royal David’s city stood a big apartheid wall..."
Bruce Kent, a former Roman Catholic priest and the vice-president of the Catholic peace organisation Pax Christi, who was among the readers, told The Times: "The carols pointed out exactly what is going on in occupied Palestine today. I am delighted they have had the publicity that this has generated. Anyone who speaks against Zionist policies is labelled anti-Semitic."
The organiser, Deborah Fink, of Jews for Boycotting Israeli Goods, said: "This was just stating what is going on in the West Bank. It is just typical that they are always seeing Israel as the victim. There are not many Israeli victims of terrorism. It is the Palestinians who are the victims. Israel has turned Gaza almost into a concentration camp."
It is of no significance to Zionists who foment a perception of an overwhelming hatred for Jews simply due to their choice of faith whether what is being charged against Israel are incontrovertible truth. Let us remind these Zionists that truth is a defense to defamation. Nevertheless, that is Israel's Zionism at its finest moments -- from WWII, ploughing through various false-flag escapades into the Muslim world and foraging further their craft of deception unto Ethiopia; Jews and Zionists in particular eternally criticize everyone and anyone who question their apartheid fascist reign as being purveyors of anti-Semitism.
While at the same time the goal and the aim of Aliya is dependent upon and is in dire need of some sort of anti-Semitic narrative in order to be able to continue and "gather the exiles." The Aliya avails citizenship to any person who claim they are Jewish in Israel. while the Palestinian people who have been living there for thousands of years are forcibly caged into ever shrinking encampments under a harsh police state that slowly suck the lifeblood out of the indigenous population.
Mr Prosor, speaking to The Times, said: “It was appalling to see a church allow one of its most endearing seasonal traditions to be hijacked by hatred.
“Unfortunately, the criticism from within the Church of England, that should have echoed with bold moral clarity, has instead sounded like a silent night, but far from holy."
If Santa Claus turned up in Bethlehem this Christmas, he would receive a "frosty reception" from Hamas extremists, he said.
