Three Armenian priests in the Church of the Nativity, (you know, the ones who “weren’t hostages”?), escaped last night.
The priests told of “shocking sights” inside the church, including the beating by terrorists of some Christian clergy last night.
Nawwww, no hostages there. Just a little friendly S&M.
Of the many instances of one-sided reporting in this war, this particular incident is one that I find the most inexplicable. I’m still having trouble finding anyone who will criticize the Palestinians for taking over the church–all the blame for the standoff still seems to be levied on the Israelis.
