Pastor Flees PA after Threats on his Life

"Moslem hatred of Christians in Palestinian territories has intensified since the Iraq War and the terrorist attacks in the US on Sept. 11, 2001 to the point of open acts of persecution, threats and violence."

With the dirt still fresh over the coffin of a Palestinian martyr in Gaza, another evangelical pastor in Palestinian territories fears he may be the next target of persecution against Christians and is taking no chances.Isa Bajalia, who is a pastor in Ramallah, fled to Jerusalem after receiving several threats against his life and was refused protection by Palestinian officials.These latest threats underscore the growing violence against Christians, particularly evangelical Christians, in Palestinian territories. Less than a month ago a Palestinian Bible Society worker in Gaza, Rami Ayyad, was kidnapped and killed.“I was told, ‘The same things that happened to Rami in Gaza would happen to you,’”Bajalia recounted. “They said, ‘We can catch you in the US;’ ‘We’re going to break your arms and legs;’ ‘Beyond the fact that you can’t see well, you’re also not going to walk;’ and, ‘Just like Hamas did to Fatah, we’re going to shoot you in your knee caps.’”
