The western sell out of its own principles and traditions could not be more clear this year as reports out of the Middle East show that Iraqis are exultantly celebrating Christmas as ISIS flees in defeat while at the same time Europe is canceling Christmas and removing holiday decorations to appease the tender sensibilities of their Muslim invaders.
This weekend a string of reports emerged from Iraq as the terror army ISIS continues its headlong retreat in the face of renewed pressure from President Donald Trump’s military forces supplemented by Iraq’s own growingly confident security forces.
For instance, celebrants of the Christmas holiday were seen throughout the Iraqi city of Mosul this year as ISIS finds defeat at every turn.
As reported by newswire service AFP:
Hymns filled a church in Iraq’s second city Mosul on Sunday as worshippers celebrated Christmas for the first time in four years after the end of jihadist rule.
Tens of thousands of Christians fled northern Iraqi towns in 2014 as the Islamic State group seized Mosul and swathes of the surrounding Nineveh province.
But Iraqi forces expelled the jihadists from the city this year after months of battle, allowing Christians to return to pray at Saint Paul’s church.
On Sunday morning, the patriarch of Iraq’s Chaldean Catholic Church, Patriarch Louis Raphael Sako, called on dozens to pray for “peace and stability in Mosul, Iraq and the world”.
Muslims, as well as local and military officials, stood with Christian worshippers amid the candles and Christmas trees.
Mosul was not the only Iraqi city to jump to celebrate the Christmas holiday. A 30-foot-tall Christmas tree was erected for the second year in a row in downtown Baghdad, too.
As Breitbart reported (well, as I wrote for Breitbart, anyway):
Residents of Baghdad have erected a 30-foot-tall Christmas tree to celebrate Christmas and to mark the end of the terror army ISIS, beaten back by Iraqi Security Forces.
The giant tree made international news, according to a Fox News tweet: “Iraqi Christians have raised a 30-ft. tall Christmas tree in Baghdad to celebrate both the holiday and the expulsion of ISIS extremists by Iraq Security Forces.”

So, as ISIS retreats in the face of the massive pressure put on it by Trump and Iraqi security forces, citizens are freely celebrating the holiday at long last in the Muslim dominant country.
Meanwhile, in Europe they are going in the opposite direction. European governments are dismantling Christmas for fear of the terrorism being brought in by the millions of Muslim invaders they have allowed to flood into their countries.
The Italian city of Bolzano, for instance, has canceled their Christmas decorations for fear it might “offend” Muslims.
According to the European Post:
The “Association of Veterans” organised an event in the public room of the Town Hall to award the “Athlete of the year” prize. They decorated the room with traditional Christmas symbols and, given the Christmas time, once they finished their event they left a Christmas tree decoration. The problem arrived the day after, when they received a call from an office of the Town Hall asking to remove the Christmas tree because there would have been a meeting of a Muslim association in the same room and ‘the tree could hurt their sensibility,’ the president of the Association Alberto Ferrini said.
The Gatestone Institute also noted a slew of canceled Christmas plans in Europe this year. Gatestone even reports that some European areas are beginning to teach that the Christian religious claim on Christmas is one somehow stolen from Islam.
The re-theologizing of Christmas is based on the false premise that the Jesus of the Bible is the Jesus (Isa) of the Koran. This religious fusion, sometimes referred to as “Chrislam,” is gaining ground in a West that has become biblically illiterate.
Gatestone went on with a series of reports of the destruction if Christmas in Europe and Britain. Such as this:
A school in Lüneburg postponed a Christmas party after a Muslim student complained that the singing of Christmas carols during school was incompatible with Islam. Alexander Gauland, the leader of the anti-immigration Alternative for Germany (AfD), said the school’s action was “an unbearable, involuntary submission to Islam” and amounted to a “cowardly injustice” toward non-Muslim children.
Europe isn’t alone, either. We have those trying to destroy Christmas here in the U.S., too.
Even in the United States some Grinches were dogging Christians for daring to celebrate Christmas. In Pennsylvania, a suburban family was told to remove a Christmas decoration from their property because the word “Jesus” offended a neighbor.

Quite sensibly, the homeowner told his HOA and his neighbors to pound sand and said he had no intention whatever of removing the decoration until after the holidays.
In another case, critics spoke up to slam the Hallmark Channel’s Christmas specials because they “brim with white heterosexuals” and “white privilege.”
As Breitbart noted, “The assault on the popular holiday tradition started this month with Salon.com’s report. The article is entitled ‘A super white Christmas: The Hallmark Channel gives us TV’s most homogeneous view of the holiday; Hallmark’s white Christmas tales have hooked holiday viewers while leaving minority actors out in the cold.'”
And, in a move that takes the record for self-immolating stupidity, here comes the Canadian government website that is telling kids that Santa Claus had to flee the North Pole because global warming has destroyed his workshop. No, really. That IS what they said.
According to a new publication by the Canadian government, “Thanks to rising global temperatures, rapidly melting Arctic ice and growing human operations in the North, Santa Claus has signed an agreement with the International community to relocate his village next year to operate in an exclusive zone in the South Pole.”
Talk about using a fun tradition for the kids as propaganda for your globaloney religion, eh?
