Non Government Organization Monitor which, as it name implies, monitors private, non government organizations (NGO’s) working in Israel, researched and reported how the NGOs stole Christmas in Israel.And how did they do that? By taking the holiday’s theme of love and one of the foundations of Christianity and twisting it into hate and lies.The Christmas season is being exploited by non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to advance anti-peace agendas and to delegitimize Israel, says NGO Monitor, a Jerusalem-based research institution. By manipulating traditional Christmas songs, images, and messages, NGOs such as Sabeel, War on Want (UK), Amos Trust, and Adalah-NY continue to demonize Israel with crude, antisemitic rhetoric.“These NGOs have hijacked Christmas to promote their extremely divisive boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) and demonization campaigns,” says Prof. Gerald Steinberg, president of NGO Monitor. “Manipulating religious symbols and images in this manner is deeply offensive, and clearly does not foster an environment of coexistence among Israelis and Palestinians. These NGOs are pursuing hate-filled agendas.”
Will Christians protest the perversion of one of their most important holidays done in the name of Christianity by other Christians?
