Mayor of Nazareth suburb bans Christmas Trees  or how the mayor of a Nazareth suburb stole Christmas....***

Nazareth's "Mary's Spring" in 1894. Buy cheap lariam online The hill in the background is the site of today's Upper Nazareth. Nazareth, buy cheap lariam online Jesus’s hometown, buy cheap lariam online is today a bustling city of over 70, buy cheap lariam online000 people. Buy cheap lariam online The people of Nazareth are termed “Arab citizens of Israel” or “1948 Palestinians, buy cheap lariam online” depending on one’s politics. Buy cheap lariam online About a third of Nazarenes are Christians, buy cheap lariam online the rest are Muslim. On the hill rising above the dense town and its imposing Basilica of the Annunciation, buy cheap lariam online lies Upper Nazareth (Hebrew: “Nazareth Illit”). Buy cheap lariam online This community was founded by Israel in 1957, buy cheap lariam online a Jewish town situated so as to overlook the country’s largest solidly Arab community. Buy cheap lariam online However, buy cheap lariam online realities in the Galilee transcend nationalist aspirations. Buy cheap lariam online Families from Nazareth proper have been moving over the years to the airier hilltop suburb. Buy cheap lariam online Today, buy cheap lariam online about 15 percent of Upper Nazareth residents are Arabs, buy cheap lariam online mostly Christians. These Arabs have witnessed the enormous Hanukkiyahs (menorahs) places by the city over the Jewish holiday of Hannukah. Buy cheap lariam online Now, buy cheap lariam online with the coming of Christmas, buy cheap lariam online they approached the mayor, buy cheap lariam online Shimon Gapso, buy cheap lariam online and requested that a Christmas tree be placed as well. Buy cheap lariam online Gafso, buy cheap lariam online reports Israeli news site NRG (owned by Maariv), buy cheap lariam online refused staunchly. Buy cheap lariam online “Upper Nazareth is a Jewish town and all its symbols are Jewish, buy cheap lariam online” said Gapso, buy cheap lariam online “As long as I hold office, buy cheap lariam online no non-Jewish symbol will be presented in the city.” Arab members of the city council, buy cheap lariam online representing a moderate public that chose to come and live in a heavily Jewish suburb, buy cheap lariam online insisted. Buy cheap lariam online They mentioned the Hanukkiyahs erected in American cities that aren’t designated Jewish. Buy cheap lariam online Gapso ignored their pleas. Buy cheap lariam online “Let them go down to Lower Nazareth, buy cheap lariam online” he said this week. Buy cheap lariam online To his support came the city’s chief rabbi, buy cheap lariam online Isaiah Herzl, buy cheap lariam online who said that erecting Christmas tree is unthinkable since it would be “offensive to Jewish eyes.” Unlike the reporter at NRG, buy cheap lariam online the author here at +972 Magazine has liberty to comment and analyse. Buy cheap lariam online It is almost scary to attempt this, buy cheap lariam online since such a story would read so differently to different readers. Buy cheap lariam online Being a Jew, buy cheap lariam online I know exactly how threatening Christmas is to us, buy cheap lariam online being the most tempting symbol of non-Jewish life (I wouldn’t even say Christian life, buy cheap lariam online since the roots of the holiday are pagan, buy cheap lariam online it is celebrated by non-Christians and has been greatly stripped of its Christian content over the past century). Buy cheap lariam online We have all been brought up with the notion that holding on to Judaism requires resisting such symbols. In the heart, buy cheap lariam online that is. By declaring Upper Nazareth Christmas resistant, buy cheap lariam online Mayor Gapso exposes the great insecurity and confusion of the Jewish state. Buy cheap lariam online If the only way to maintain the Jewish character of his town is by showing complete lack of tolerance and resisting integration of its non-Jewish residents, buy cheap lariam online then Upper Nazareth is in fact a self imposed ghetto, buy cheap lariam online walled by fear and intolerance and so, buy cheap lariam online by extension, buy cheap lariam online is the entire state of Israel. Having lived within these walls for so long, buy cheap lariam online Mayor Gapso has absolutely no clue what non-Jews around the world would feel when hearing that the mayor of a Nazareth suburb bans Christmas trees. Buy cheap lariam online He is the mayor who stole Christmas, buy cheap lariam online the mayor of an ethnocentric town with a name that hints at superiority, buy cheap lariam online who rejects a symbol of universal tolerance. Make no mistake, buy cheap lariam online mayors always think forward to the next election. Buy cheap lariam online Mr. Buy cheap lariam online Gapso, buy cheap lariam online who in the past made efforts to draw Jewish families into his town and reduce the percentage of Arabs in it, buy cheap lariam online predicts that his act will draw support from the community. Buy cheap lariam online In that he does not differ from the Jewish mayors of other mixed towns, buy cheap lariam online such as Akko’s Shimon Lankry, buy cheap lariam online who take an intolerant position whenever that is an option, buy cheap lariam online gaining power from the animosities within their communities. In the spirit of the holidays, buy cheap lariam online let us conclude this not with them but with a fond mention of a different city. Buy cheap lariam online The city of Haifa, buy cheap lariam online under Mayor Yona Yahav, buy cheap lariam online placed a huge Christmas tree right at the boundary of the its Jewish and Arab neighborhoods, buy cheap lariam online (in fact, buy cheap lariam online a bit further into the Jewish area), buy cheap lariam online proving that sharing the festive season is possible even in this troubled land.
