This Christmas season is far different than the last two since we have a president in charge who brought back the reason for the season. He’s not afraid to say “Merry Christmas” instead of the politically correct salutation of “Happy Holidays,” and it’s driving liberals to new levels of insanity. Now, in an effort to regain control and infiltrate hate into a joyous time of year, a Muslim Mayor has just announced that Christmas is canceled this year for everyone in his city, jut one week before Jolly Old Saint Nick is expected the come down eager childrens’ chimneys.
For eight years, Islam has reigned supreme as the former Commander-in-Chief catered to this religion over all others. That all changed when new leadership took office and made America and Christmas great again. The days of tiptoeing around terrorists is over but that isn’t stopping them from trying to reclaim the control that former President Barack Obama gave them when he put the priority on their beliefs and sensitivities over Christianity.
In an unexpected recent move, President Donald Trump gave our Jewish allies in Israel and early Christmas present by recognizing Jerusalem as their capital, rather than Tel Aviv. This brought about a terroristic promise of a “Day of Rage,” but now the mayor or Nazareth, where Christmas began, has just doubled down on the recourse after Trump’s decision.
The Muslim mayor of Nazareth has canceled traditional outdoor songs and plays celebrating Christmas in the city where Jesus spent his childhood.
Mayor Ali Salam, who once made the curious boast that U.S. President Donald Trump “learned everything from me” about how to win elections, indicated that he was punishing local and visiting Christians as revenge for the President’s decision to officially recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
“Our message is we love Jerusalem, we’ll never abandon you under any circumstances,” Salamdeclared.
“Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate … The decision [by Donald Trump about Jerusalem] has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.”
While Nazareth is located within Israel proper rather than Palestinian Authority territory in Gaza and the West Bank, a majority of its inhabitants are Arabs with Israeli citizenship.
At a little over 30 percent of the population, Christians are a significant minority — but are dominated by the Muslim majority which voted Salam into power.
Nevertheless, the local administration has already walked back his aggressive position somewhat, conceding “there are commercial interests of the city and we are used to hundreds of thousands [of Christians] coming for this season.”
Some elements of the traditional celebrations will, therefore, go ahead, such as the Christmas market and a parade on December 23rd — but the singing performances and outdoor plays which usually mark the season will be prohibited.
According to the Bible, the city of Nazareth is where the archangel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary she would bear the Saviour, making it one Christianity’s holiest sites.
After giving birth to Jesus in Bethlehem — now located in the Palestinian-controlled West Bank — Mary and the rest of the Holy Family are said to have fled to Egypt to escape from Herod the Great, who ordered all of the infant boys in Bethlehem killed after learning a new king had been born.
Mary returned to Nazareth following Herod’s death, where the Bible says her child “grew, and waxed strong in spirit, filled with wisdom: and the grace of God was upon him.”
There should have never been a Muslim mayor of this Biblical city to begin with. They don’t recognize or respect the important history of this place and not only won’t protect and preserve it but will destroy it – as we’re seeing now. This is truly sad that it’s gotten this far and it will only get worse if people don’t stand up and revolt against this egregious abuse of power.

Protests in other parts of the Palestinian territories, as well as across the Arab world, have broken out since Trump’s announcement.
The Palestinians’ chief representative to Britain, Manuel Hassassian, blasted the American leader’s decision to move the US embassy.
He told the BBC: “He is declaring war in the Middle East, he is declaring war against 1.5 billion Muslims (and) hundreds of millions of Christians that are not going to accept the holy shrines to be totally under the hegemony of Israel.”
This issue doesn’t just exist overseas and in historical parts of the world – it’s a major problem here at home as we’ve seen with the Muslim mayor in Minnesota. Muslum-controlled cities are like Democrat-controlled cities: urban wastelands, plagued by out-of-control crime, murder, fear, and poverty. Minnesota standouts in this equation of supposed diversity…I’m sure there are a lot more cities in their quest to destroy our sovereignty. How’s that working out sanctuary cities?
