Hillary Clinton complains that Christians are facing genocide at the hands of extremists in the Islamic community, but is silent when it comes to Israeli persecution of Christians

The Christmas holidays always bring conflict into my life. #‎SaveArabChristians‬

I share the same tribulations most others feel when it comes to Christmas: I’m concerned about the poor, the homeless and children who won’t have a “Merry” Christmas because of poverty and neglect.

I’m concerned about non-Christians being bullied during the annual season of Christian celebration. Christmas isn’t just one day. It’s a season, which can be difficult for Jews, Muslims and other non-Christians.

And there’s also the political battle that resurrects itself every Christmas season with Jesus. It’s a debate over whether we can say “Happy Holidays” rather than “Merry Christmas.”

Many argue if you say “Happy Holidays,” you’re not American, or Christian. Although I am Christian — a true Christian whose mother is from Bethlehem, the home city of Jesus himself — I make it a point to be considerate of others, and say “Happy Holidays.”

That’s the way I am. Intentionally provocative. Having covered Chicago City Hall for 17 years, and being at the forefront of the Middle East journalism debate fighting for the rights of Arabs and Muslims, I struggle to champion the rights of Christians in Israel. It’s a struggle not shared or even understood by Christian Americans.

Stained glass at St John the Baptist’s Anglican Church http://www.stjohnsashfield.org.au, Ashfield, New South Wales. Illustrates Jesus’ description of himself “I am the Good Shepherd” (from the Gospel of John, chapter 10, verse 11). This version of the image shows the detail of his face.
