That’s Qur’an 3:85, hung near the Basilica of the Annunciation in Nazareth, as reported here. Such banners are nothing new; nor is the supremacist menacing. And the world largely continues to look the other way. “Bishop Concerned Over Survival of Christian Community in Nazareth,” from Voice of America, June 1 (story and photo thanks to Weasel Zippers):
A senior Roman Catholic cleric in the Holy Land says the Christian Bishop Giacinto-Boulos Marcuzzo says the emigration of Christians from the Israeli Arab city of Nazareth is endangering the survival of the Christian community in a place of biblical importance to Christianity.
The bishop says the main cause of that emigration is a campaign by Islamists to boost their political power in Nazareth at the expense of Christians and moderate Muslims.
“Our problem is not religious, but it’s the political situation of insecurity, of non-peace, of non-justice, of non-equality among the people,” said Marcuzzo.
Insecurity, non-peace, non-justice, and non-equality among the people. For non-Muslims, that’s really life under Sharia in a nutshell.
