Score one for the Palestinian propaganda machine: The pope’s mass in Bethlehem’s Manger Square was held against a backdrop of a mural featuring baby Jesus wrapped in a blanket with the traditional keffiyeh pattern. This screen grab’s from Jerusalem Post livestreaming.
Once again, the PLO’s claiming Jesus as one of its own.
By the way, this would contradict the assertions of his unholiness, Saeb Erekat, that the Palestinians descended from Canaanites.
I wonder if Pope Francis will clear the air . . .
