Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
LOL someone just msged me this: As a Lebanese Christian why should I care about Palestine? I shall answer you in the following tweets...
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
1.) The displacement of Palestinian Christians is MUCH larger than the displacement of Muslim ones. Palestinian christians have dropped to
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
almost 5% of the total population... Not because of Muslim's but because of Israel's treatment towards them.
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
2.) As Christians, Palestine means a lot more to you than it should to Muslims. Its the land of Christ's birth, crucifixion and ressurection
noha @nionun
@BloggerSeif seriously?! It has nothing to do with Muslims/Christians. It's humanity. It's human rights. ughh.
Haakon Dahl @afghanmoon
@BloggerSeif By that token, the area should mean even more to Jews.
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
3.) Muslims, have the Sakhra in Jerusalem we see as holy. We can da7dil fiha all the way to Mecca and done..… (cont) http://deck.ly/~fyOCb
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
4.) Christian Palestinians are treated WORSE than Muslim Palestinians are - did you know that? Christian towns were MASSACRED too
Haakon Dahl @afghanmoon
@BloggerSeif How can the 3rd holy site for Islam be justification compared to the 1st holy site for Judaism? SPlit Mecca and Medina too?
@MWforHR
@BloggerSeif Perhaps another answer would be because they are human beings!
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
EXCELLENT ANSWER! RT @Mwforhr: @BloggerSeif Perhaps another answer would be because they are human beings!
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
@afghanmoon its the first for christians too... did u forget that?
Georges @Soupi
@Mwforhr @BloggerSeif there are more urgent matters than Palestine, like feeding the children in Africa.
Georges @Soupi
@Mwforhr @BloggerSeif and that's just to show that everyone has different priorities ;)
Ali Seif (no lol) @BloggerSeif
@UxSoup I am speaking on regional matters. When we feed our starving can we only look to feed the starving of the world ;)
Georges @Soupi
@BloggerSeif again, it's about each person's priorities ;) that's the whole point
@MWforHR
@BloggerSeif @UxSoup If you follow me you'll see where my priorities lie, but we do what we can where we can & follow our hearts.
Haakon Dahl @afghanmoon
@BloggerSeif In my experience, Christians are mostly okay with Israel.
