Christians in Israel

Vatican Insider is carrying a report from Israel indicating that a fringe Jewish Israeli group is targeting Christian sites with hate propaganda. This situation reflects the powder-keg that Israel sits on: not just Islamic, but also the various factions - albeit very small - within the Jewish community and its response to internal and external pressure seeking to destroy Israel as a political entity. Those conducting these acts are also undermining Israel. The tragedy is that Christian Arabs are disappearing and the vacuum is being filled by extremist Islamist forces. Richard Nixon may not have been a moral man, but he was an extremely intelligent man with a great awareness of geo-political forces and history. It was his assessment that Israel's long-term prospects for survival were not good.
