While the anti-Israel hatefest in Ireland reaches new heights (Israeli soldiers depicted as Nazis; pro-Palestinian activists calling for rocks hurled at its Dublin embassy; a newspaper printing “Welcome to hell” to Israel’s ambassador), Israeli diplomats in Ireland decided to strike back in a decidedly undiplomatic manner.
On Monday, the Israeli Embassy in Dublin recruited the images of Jesus and Mary to make a point that pro-Palestinian activists’ presentation of Israel as racist isn’t exactly reflective of a reality on the ground in which Jews are threatened daily.
The embassy posted on its Facebook page an image of Jesus and Mary with the message:
“A thought for Christmas… If Jesus and mother Mary were alive today, they would, as Jews without security, probably end up being lynched in Bethlehem by hostile Palestinians. Just a thought…….”
