Jesu hometown, Nazareth, has announced that it is cancelling the forthcoming 2017 christmas because of President Donald Trump’s action in recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Nazareth mayor, Ali Salam, claimed that by so doing, Trump had taken the joy out of the holiday. Salam who is a Muslim said during a press conference “Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate.The decision by Trump about Jerusalem has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.” Although many believe that Salam decided to cancel christmas because he is anti-Christian and not because of what the president of another country said.
Salam added that the wretched Trump had stabbed Palestinians in the back. Trump’s announcement has somehow brought about a set back in the proposed two-state solution between Israel and Palestine in respect of Jerusalem. Although Jesus was born and raised in Nazareth but today, it is dominated by Muslims.
