As the Christmas season comes to an end for Western Christians and is about to begin for Eastern Christians, I wish everyone a joyous Nativity.
In that spirit, I offer the following Christmas message for this year from the Israeli prime minister:
Isn’t interesting that the nationalist Jewish leader of the Jewish State finds it appropriate to wish Christians in Israel and throughout the world a merry Christmas, but many supposedly Christian politicians in the United States consider such a gesture of good will “divisive” and “alienating”? Of course, the Prime Minister has political reasons for his well wishes. What, I wonder, are the political reasons of the aforementioned American Christians who refuse to celebrate the birth of our Lord publically? Their ways are indeed inscrutable.
