The Spirit of Christmas: Christian Easterners

These bunch of Christian Easterners (on those wondering why I say "Christian Easterns", hold on) have "unfortunately" sided with Muslims (has Robert Spencer stuck the Dhimmitude Poster yet?). This, my friends, is some refreshing news from Bethlehem. Indeed it is in the spirit of Christmas:
In April 2003 at the height of the military campaign directed against Iraq, the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem decided to ban President Bush and Prime Minister Blair from the birthplace of Jesus Christ.

"They are war criminals and murderers of children. Therefore the Church of Nativity decided to ban them access into the holy shrine for ever,"

"Their entry into the church will tarnish it as [Bush's] hands are covered in the blood of the innocent,”

The Church of the Nativity is under the authority of the Greek Orthodox church.

Of utmost significance, the US News media has not reported this story.

Spread the word to Church parishes in the US and around the World.

Unseat the War criminals.
Now about the expression "Christian Easterners". I think this is reflective of how similarly victims irrespective of their religion think -- it is their opinion that matters when they are invaded or occupied and not of the New York Times or CNN. Most Muslims and Christians in the East rightly conclude that George Bush and Tony Blair are war criminals. In the same breath, it needs to be maintained that Christians in the West rightly conclude that Osama bin Laden is a mass murderer. How positive it would be if we could add the names of Western leaders to the list of international terrorists. We could start with Henry Kissinger who last I read was going to eulogize former president Gerald Ford with fellow master of deceit George Bush.
