The majority of Palestinian Muslims and Christians have chosen peaceful resistance. To say that Hamas is the cause of the declining Christian population in the occupied Palestinian territories is standing the truth on its head.
Mosab Hassan Yousef is the renowned "Son of Hamas": the eldest son of Hamas founder Sheikh Hassan Yousef. He grew up in a culture of violence and hatred, and rejected it for faith in peace and a belief in humanity.
In a response to a totally nonviolent protest by Palestinian Christians and Muslims demanding their freedom of movement the Israeli army has effectively banned entry of Christian pilgrims and tourists from visiting the birth place of Christ.
