Muslim clerics try to shut down YMCA....

We've blogged many times in the past about the hostility to the Christian Arab community in the west bank by muslims.
An attempt by Muslim clerics to close a YMCA branch office in the West Bank has exposed growing tensions between the Holy Land's dwindling Christian community and the new Palestinian government led by Hamas.

Firebombs were recently thrown into the office of the YMCA in Qalqilya, a Hamas stronghold, forcing the group to move to new premises.

Islamic leaders have written to the local council demanding that the YMCA branch office close. Their letter concludes: "The presence of this office will lead to negative consequences.''

While the religious leaders were not members of Hamas, the failure of the local Hamas-run council to protect the YMCA is concerning local Christians.

Hashem al Masri, the deputy mayor and a Hamas member, admitted that the YMCA's name alone was a "challenge to the city''.

Plus, Bill Siksay from the NDP just aligned himself with CAIR-Canada which recently lost 4 Law suits to silence 2 Canadians and 2 Americans that proved CAIR-USA and CAIR-Can support Hamas financially and had members
David Frum and David Harris from CSIS have both posted the TRUE results of the victories.
Who would of thought a GAY NDP member would back Hamas which murders gays in public in Palestine.
Maybe that's why Svend only went to Israel for his hissy-fit protest and allowed the IDF to stop him from entering Palestine.
