The mayor of a Jewish suburb of Nazareth refused to allow Christmas trees to be placed in town squares, calling them provocative, said an AFP report on Sky News.

Predominantly Jewish Nazareth Illit, or Upper Nazareth, is adjacent to Nazareth, where Jesus is said to have spent much of his life. It has a sizable Arab Christian minority.

"The request of the Arabs to put Christmas trees in the squares in the Arab quarter of Nazareth Illit is provocative," Mayor Shimon Gapso told AFP.

"Nazareth Illit is a Jewish city and it will not happen - not this year and not next year, so long as I am a mayor," he said.

Hear and obey our "elder brethren in the faith".
Nice to see V2 "Ecumenism" paying off.
Further dialogue is needed.
Imagine that Jews causing trouble. Maybe the Pope needs to go to another sin-agogue.
maybe it doesnt have anything to do with being anti-christian

maybe the mayor just concened about pine needle cleanup

Since when do Arabs celebrate Christmas?
