PM Netanyahu’s 2012 Christmas Greeting
(Communicated by the Prime Minister's Media Adviser)

Following is Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's 2012 Christmas greeting:

"As Christians around the world and in Israel prepare to celebrate
Christmas, I want to wish you all the merriest of holidays.

Today, Christian communities throughout the Middle East are shrinking, and
many of them are endangered. This is, of course, not true in Israel. Here
there is a strong and growing Christian community that participates fully in
the life of our country
http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/Facts+About+Israel/People/Focus+on+Israel+-+The+Christian+Communities+of+Isr.htm
. Israel is proud of its record of religious tolerance and pluralism, and
Israel will continue to protect freedom of religion for all. And we will
continue to safeguard places of Christian worship throughout our country.
We will not tolerate any acts of violence or discrimination against any
place of worship
http://www.mfa.gov.il/MFA/MFAArchive/1960_1969/Protection+of+Holy+Places+Law-+1967-.htm
This is not our way, and this is something we cannot accept.

So as you celebrate Christmas and your holy holidays, we hope that you will
recall the places where Judaism

and Christianity

emerged, and then come see our ancient land with your own eyes: Visit
Nazareth

, stand on the shores of the Sea of Galilee

And next year, come visit our eternal capital, Jerusalem

Happy holidays to all of you. May you all be blessed with a year of
security, prosperity and peace."
