During Palestinian riots in Judea and Samaria, several protesters dressed up as Santa Claus showed up and clashed with the IDF. This was no ordinary ‘ho-ho-ho’ greeting.
Why did protesters dress up as what has become a recognizable Christian icon?
Was it done as a means of antagonizing IDF soldiers?
More likely, the reason is that it would appear as if IDF soldiers are fighting against a symbolic Christian figure, making Israel look very bad in the process.
What we know for sure is that the Palestinians don’t need to work very hard in order to gain worldwide sympathy and support.
