PM Netanyahu’s Christmas Greeting
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu wishes a very joyous Christmas and a happy new year to Israel’s Christian citizens and to Christians throughout the world!
(Communicated by the Prime Minister’s Media Advisor)
From Jerusalem I wish Israel’s Christian community, and Christians everywhere, a very joyous Christmas and a happy new year.
I am proud to say that Israel is one of the few countries in the Middle East, maybe the only country in the Middle East,
where Christians are truly free to practice their faith openly, freely, to celebrate Christmas and other Christian holidays.
The State of Israel is a beacon of liberty in a Middle East plagued by oppression and extremism.
Here everyone can practice their faith, because in Israel, religious freedom is sacred.
