    A group of Jewish extremists attacked on Sunday afternoon two young Armenians and destroyed a cross near the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in East Jerusalem’s Old City.

    Israeli settlers such as these have attacked for years members of the clergy in the Armenian Quarter. Today the Armenians who were assaulted Sunday are not being protected, but rather expelled.

    Christians in the bombed-out, Israel-closed Gaza Strip feel abandoned because Pope Benedict XVI of the Vatican will snub their coastal enclave during his upcoming several-day visit to the Holy Lands.

    "We are disappointed that he will not visit the Strip and see the scale of destruction with his eyes," Hala Saleeba, 41, a teacher in the Holy Family Christian School in Gaza, told IslamOnline.net.

    "The one who sees with eyes is not the same as the one who hears with ears."

    Senior Haaretz editir Akiva Eldar interviews Former US president Jimmy Carter - in light of new American President and the Israeli Elections.

    "I've known the history of the Jewish people, the Hebrew people, the Israelites, and I've taught these things every Sunday since I was 18 years old. So I'm deeply committed as a Christian to seeing the covenant with Abraham fulfilled," says Carter, noting that peace in the Middle East is also "a key to tremendously reducing the level of animosity against my own country, and reducing the commitment to violence through terrorist acts."

    Every Christmastime, there's an update on the status of Bethlehem, the town where the Bible says Jesus was born. Tourists? No tourists? Street fighting? Quiet? Bethlehem has been battered, revived, battered again and revived again in more cycles than I can count.

    The first time I visited, in 1971, it was a quick few miles hike from the southern edge of Jerusalem, through a dip in the ancient landscape, past centuries old olive groves. My last visit was in 1999 when the town was in a building boom and many had high hopes that prosperity on the West Bank would contribute to more peaceful days.
