Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu told the Christian Media Summit in Jerusalem on Sunday:
  • “Israel is the only country in the Middle East where the Christian community thrives and grows.”
  • “Bethlehem had – when we handed it over to the Palestinian Authority – a Christian population of roughly 80%. Now it’s about 20%. And that change happened because in the Palestinian Authority areas, as well as throughout the Middle East, Christians are being constricted, they’re being pressured, also they’re being persecuted.”
  • “Israel is the one country that protects the human rights of all….We don’t just protect Christian religious sites – we protect Christian people. Christians should enjoy all the freedom to worship as they please in the Middle East and anywhere else and the only place in the Middle East where they can do so is Israel.”
  • “We have no better friends in the world than our Christian friends and I take this opportunity to thank you for your steadfast support. You are standing up for Israel and you are standing up for the truth and we stand up for you.”
