    If it is, it will earn some extreme right-wing Jews a lot of bad will. The awareness of this bad will even seems to sprinkle into some more active religious Christian communities in the Nordic countries, when they through their papers report of such abuse of Christian priests and others in Jerusalem. (Well, they leave their rather liberal religious Christian newspapers lying around, which makes it easy to peek into the world of somewhat less Americanized active Nordic Christians. But of course, many of them also have close relations to Christians belonging to churches who are unbelievably biased in their interpretations of the conflicts in Israel/Palestine as well as somewhat out-of-date in their interpretation of the scriptures. I even saw one of this movements political representatives bragging, in a ‘normal’ local newspaper, about having been to a Christian conference in the USA and that she now would hold a local conference for those interested to hear about her news from the USA, her long term defence of ALL Israel’s wars, her philosophies about human relations and her understanding of the creation of humans and beasts. )
