BBC Misleads About the Alleged Decline of Israel’s Christian Population –

Recent statistics show that the Christian population of Israel is flourishing but not everyone is happy to present that simple truth.

Last week, the Israel Bureau of Statistics published the 2018 figures on Christians living in Israel. According to the report, approximately 175,000 Christians currently live in the Holy Land making up two percent of the total population. Of those, 77.7 percent are Arab Christians. This represents a 2.2 percent growth in Israel’s Christian population in the past year.

The report showed that 70.6 percent of these Christians live in northern Israel. Of the non-Arab Christians, 40.9 percent live in Tel Aviv and other central districts, and 33.8 percent live in the north and in Haifa.

BBC Watch reported on an edition of the BBC Radio 4 program ‘World at One’ aired on December 26th. During the program, the UK Foreign Secretary was set to describe the plight of persecuted Christians around the world. Presenter Jonny Dymond introduced that section of the show by incorrectly saying that just as in other Muslim majority countries in the Middle East, the Christian population in Israel was shrinking.

Never mind the state it's in as I tidy everything up prior to publication. Don't let good material go to waste - and so much does. In the interests of the environment we should always try to re-cycle everything, especially jokes. You know that makes sense! You may find some historical stuff here, but this does not really matter as humor is fairly timeless.
