    don't blame Israel about the declining of the palestinian christian population. maybe the occupation makes harder for a christian to live in the west bank, of course, but the decreasing number of them is not because of Israel. in lebanon, christians used to be 80% in 1920.... now are 30%. in syria the percentage of christians is decreasing. now they are less than 10%. the same in Iraq, christians are leaving. the same in jordan. christians are leaving to the western countries. in egypt, copts are decreasing in percentage also..... the reasons are that many christians prefer to live in a western country than in a muslim majority country. in latin america the great majority of lebanese, syrians and palestinians are christians. you can't see muslim arabs (maybe some in chile and argentina, but very few). and another reason is the high number of childs in muslim families. the birth rate among muslims is higher than christians and another minorities. just look lebanon. now lebanon is a muslim country with a christian minority........ if I'm not wrong, Israel have a growing christian population.

Why the Jewish establishment won’t condemn the occupation

Unless more U.S. Jews who oppose the occupation become members of established Jewish organizations and donate money, the establishment is unlikely to heed calls of those who want it to condemn the occupation.
