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