UPDATE: 2008 – Footage of Bush’s January visit to Bethlehem suggests that he visited the Church of the Nativity and than the ban may have only been in place in the immediate aftermath of the invasion of Iraq in 2003. Nevertheless, the ban was good while it lasted …
Oh how deliciously, symbolically poetic and just! I only just caught this snippet over at GlobalResearch.ca.; in a virtually unreported item here, Dubya and B-liar had been officially banned from the birthplace of Christ in 2003 in response to their invasion of Iraq. Here is the preamble to the news item featured there, followed by a cartoon from Leunig:
“Their entry into the church will tarnish it as [Bush’s] hands are covered in the blood of the innocent…”
The Spirit of Christmas consists in spreading Peace and Justice.
The Spirit of Christmas is when War Criminals are banned from the Birthplace of Jesus Christ.
In April 2003 at the height of the military campaign directed against Iraq, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem decided to ban President Bush and Prime Minister Blair from the birthplace of Jesus Christ.
“They are war criminals and murderers of children. Therefore the Church of Nativity decided to ban them access into the holy shrine for ever,”
“Their entry into the church will tarnish it as [Bush’s] hands are covered in the blood of the innocent,”
The Church of the Nativity is under the authority of the Greek Orthodox church.
Of utmost significance, the US News media has not reported this story.
Spread the word to Church parishes in the US and around the World.
Unseat the War criminals. READ THE REST HERE
