Skip to comments.Muslim Mayor of Nazareth Says Christmas Celebrations No Longer Canceled Over Trump Jerusalem Move

The Muslim mayor of the Israeli city of Nazareth has now said that Christmas celebrations will be permitted following reports that they would be canceled due to U.S. President Donald Trump's controversial decision on Jerusalem.
"I don't know why people thought that there would be cuts to the celebrations. Everything, except for three singers who will not be coming, will be held as normal. We have already welcomed 60,000 people to the city today," Mayor Ali Salam told Reuters on Saturday.
"[I] invite all the residents of the State of Israel - the Jews, Muslims and Christians - to come to the city of Nazareth and take part in the Christmas celebrations," the mayor declared, according to the Times of Israel.
"Nazareth is the city of peace and brotherhood between religions and nations, and there is nothing like the spirit of the holiday and the shared experience to prove it."
Last week it was reported that Salam had decided to limit Christmas celebrations in Nazareth - the city where Jesus Christ was raised - over Trump's decision to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

You mean.....It was Fake News?? Impossible...s/
Salami, salami, baloney!
Fake News in the Middle East.
Follow the money trail...
Old mayor “salami” saw all those tourist dollars drying up faster than a mud puddle in a hot Texas sun.
I think he discovered that the town was losing a lot of business, and the shop, hotel, and restaurant owners were furious at him.
I doubt whether all the cancellations will be made up again.
“The Muslim mayor of the Israeli city of Nazareth”
Not a problem that a few Crusader drones couldn’t fix.
Why does Nazareth have a Muslim mayor?
-—Why does Nazareth have a Muslim mayor?-—
He was elected by the people ???
The headline should be “Trump Makes Christmas Great Again!
You are right about the business aspects of his decision. I have been to Bethlehem at Christmas time and the place is packed Christians.
Been there. Looked to me like most of the city was muslim. From the parked bus on a main street to Joseph’s home there were giant billboards telling us to come to Allah and be saved.
I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure out why Nazareth celebrates Christmas!
No funds by for you!
More fake news and agitprop from the Leftard antiChristian media.
Where the Holy Family lived.
Gospel Lk 1:26-38
In the sixth month,
the angel Gabriel was sent from God
to a town of Galilee called Nazareth,
to a virgin betrothed to a man named Joseph,
of the house of David,
and the virgin’s name was Mary.
And coming to her, he said,
“Hail, full of grace! The Lord is with you.”
But she was greatly troubled at what was said
and pondered what sort of greeting this might be.
Then the angel said to her,
“Do not be afraid, Mary,
for you have found favor with God.
Behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son,
and you shall name him Jesus.
He will be great and will be called Son of the Most High,
and the Lord God will give him the throne of David his father,
and he will rule over the house of Jacob forever,
and of his Kingdom there will be no end.”
But Mary said to the angel,
“How can this be,
since I have no relations with a man?”
And the angel said to her in reply,
“The Holy Spirit will come upon you,
and the power of the Most High will overshadow you.
Therefore the child to be born
will be called holy, the Son of God.
And behold, Elizabeth, your relative,
has also conceived a son in her old age,
and this is the sixth month for her who was called barren;
for nothing will be impossible for God.”
Mary said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of the Lord.
May it be done to me according to your word.”
Then the angel departed from her.
The schmuck is walkin’ it back
Another 20% shift in the city demographics to muslim and he wont have to pretend anymore
Overbreeding muslims and Christians being driven out by their loving tolerance
Nazareth used to be a majority Christian city- not now
