Christmas is the most important time of year for Christians, but thanks to a Muslim mayor they won’t be able to publicly celebrate the holiday in what’s arguably one of the most important cities in Christianity.

Mayor Ali Salem is the leader of the city of Nazareth, which you may recognize as the city where Christ was raised, and his latest decree has Christians across the globe outraged. According to Breitbart News, Salem has banned certain parts of Christmas celebrations in what appears to be retaliation for President Trump recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Mayor Ali Salam, who once made the curious boast that U.S. President Donald Trump “learned everything from me” about how to win elections, indicated that he was punishing local and visiting Christians as revenge for the President’s decision to officially recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

“Our message is we love Jerusalem, we’ll never abandon you under any circumstances,” Salam declared.

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

That’s one spiteful mayor.

Unfortunately for the Christians in Nazareth, who make up only 30 percent of the population and are dominated by the Muslim majority, they have little choice in the matter as they’re severely outnumbered.

But while Salem initially banned all public celebrations of the Christian holiday, he seemingly showed a little mercy in recognizing there’s a benefit to allowing limited displays; however, his decision wasn’t rooted in kindness and compassion for his Christian counterparts – he realized the city would lose money from tourism.

Nevertheless, the local administration has already walked back his aggressive position somewhat, conceding “there are commercial interests of the city and we are used to hundreds of thousands [of Christians] coming for this season.”

Some elements of the traditional celebrations will therefore go ahead, such as the Christmas market and a parade on December 23rd — but the singing performances and outdoor plays which usually mark the season will be prohibited.

Again, this is one spiteful mayor.

For those unaware, Nazareth is said in the Bible to be the city where Archangel Gabriel told the Virgin Mary that she was going to give birth to Jesus Christ, and then where He was subsequently raised after Mary returned to the city from Egypt, making it one of the holiest sites to Christianity.

It’s the largest city in Israel, and was formerly recognized by the world as the country’s capital until President Trump’s recent decision to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.
