Christ without the checkpoint?

Here's an article from the Irish Times showing that Israel's capacity for projection knows no bounds:

The Israeli embassy in Dublin has apologised and taken down a post on its Facebook page that said that if Mary and Jesus were alive today they would “probably end up being lynched in Bethlehem by hostile Palestinians”.
The post, which was made on the Israel in Ireland Facebook page at about lunchtime yesterday, showed a picture of Mary and Jesus, accompanied by the comment: “A thought for Christmas . . . If Jesus and mother Mary were alive today, they would, as Jews without security, probably end up being lynched in Bethlehem by hostile Palestinians. Just a thought . . .”
By 3pm it had 20 “Likes”, though several comments expressed distaste for the post.
Among them was one saying: “Have you no regard for honesty whatsoever? If Jesus Mary were alive today, they would be protesting against the Israeli occupation of Palestine, along with all the Palestinian Christians currently living in Bethlehem.”
I don't do Facebook myself but it's good to see that supporters of the Palestinian cause are monitoring the shenanigans of Israeli embassies, no doubt, worldwide
