Christmas in the Holy Land
by Stephen Lendman
Israeli state terror takes no holidays. Peace and good will don’t exist – not in how Israelis treat Palestinians, brutalizing them every day of the year, holy ones included. 
Violence raged Christmas eve and day throughout the Territories – without letup, another five Palestinians extrajudicially executed, dozens more injured and/or arrested.
Fear stalks an entire population, parents unsure if their children will live another day, or if they’ll succumb to unrelenting Israeli viciousness – waging war on defenseless people, asserting might over right, revealing state terror as official policy, even throughout the holiday period.
Expect no letup into the new year. Perhaps escalated ruthlessness to come, slow-motion genocide by any standard – with full US support and encouragement, both nations partnering in each other’s high crimes, mocking peace, equity and justice.
