Nazareth Cancels Christmas Celebrations To Protest US Move On Jerusalem

Christmas celebrations in Nazareth — Jesus’ childhood hometown, according to Christian belief — have been canceled to protest the US president’s recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.





The city council announced Thursday that Mayor Ali Salam, a Muslim, had ordered the axing of all planned artistic events, including a festival and large Christmas market.


Our identity and faith aren’t up for debate,” Salam said. “The decision [by Donald Trump about Jerusalem] has taken away the joy of the holiday, and we will thus cancel the festivities this year.


Nazareth is one of the holiest cities in Christendom because it was there that the angel Gabriel is believed by Christians to have told the Virgin Mary she would conceive and bear Jesus.
According to the New Testament, Jesus also grew up in the town.


The annual celebrations are a major tourist draw and source of income for the city, which is inhabited primarily by Arab citizens of Israel, two-thirds of whom are Muslim and the remaining third Christian.

Some major things happening this year.
After listening to John Hagee, I now know not to argue on certain things when it comes to this Jeruselem/Nazareth topic.

Can't wait for the turn of events

JESUS SAID A PROPHET DOES NOT HONOURED IN HIS HOME TOWN

This is inconsequential. What will be, must be.
Jesus' birth couldn't be stopped, His early years, couldn't be killed, His resurrection couldn't be stopped, so His return for His bride(The church) is yea and Amen
Whatever needs to be in place or happen for dis to happen, must happen.
