A Letter From A Palestinian Muslim to Santa

Dear Mr. Santa,

This might be unusual request coming from someone who is a Muslim, but the fact I have  few things on my mind.

Could you please swing by Palestine, and in particular to a place called Gaza this year. It is not too far from Bethlehem, the birthplace of Jesus, who is ‘the reason for the season’. There are 1.5 million people who are starving there in Gaza and have been under siege from air, sea, and ground for almost three years. You may ask what is the reason for that? Those people wanted to be free and independent just like us here in America.

Over 51% of the population is under the age of 15. Among those people are solid 3,000 Christians also. Statistically speaking, there should be about 1,500 of their Christian children who will not be having a merry Christmas this year for lack of basic necessities to survive such as food, water, fuel, and medicine. Animals are in a worse shape than humans in Gaza. There is no grass or animal feeds left in Gaza. Parents and children alike are dying daily because they are unable to get medical attention inside or outside Gaza due to the blockade. The U.N. is no longer able to deliver food anymore because of border closings, and has also warned of impending human disaster..

The children of Gaza do not need toys or video games as they do in other parts of the ‘Cristian’ world, so I suggest the following:

Baby formula

Bottled water


Vitamin supplement. I heard many suffer from severe malnutrition

Clothing and toiletry

Batteries (all sizes)

Hearing aids for children

Animal feeds. I heard that a local pet store here is having a great bargain, buy one get one free!

Meal Ready to Eat [MRE]. The same kind used by the military.

No need for desert, there is one inside the MRE package. However, if there is some ginger bread man on special, I recommend taking several boxes. I am sure the children will enjoy it and will talk about it for years to come.

Thank you in advance. Have a safe trip. May Allah [God in Arabic] be with you, and as you would say; Ho, ho, ho.


Mahmoud El-Yousseph

    ANY american man woman or ESPECIALLY CHILD that reads this and is not disturbed and moved to compassion AND action must be not just morally dead but SPIRITUALLY DEAD AS WELL!

    The key issue here is that this is a grave tragic situationfor which the American people share virtually TOTAL responsibility. I am one of the very few American who have witnessed this tragedy ON SITE- REAL TIME. Been there done that – as they say.

    You American billionaires with all of your IMMENSE wealth – how can you use a mirrir to shave – or lie on your silk shets to sleep peacefully knowing that YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE for this human anguish of God’s most innocent creations – AND thart YOU are the people most able to releive the pain starvation and endless suggering – with what is LTERALLY – POCKET CHANGE TO YOU!

    I address people specifically like YOU – MR. Bill Gates – and you Mr. Warren Buffet – as you sit in your Lear jets or mega yachts with literally BILLIONS of dollars at you disposal – are you so stingy and remorseless that you cannot render a few ‘pennies’ from your purse to do a REAL ACT OF CHARITY?

    Have you learned NO Lesson from the timeless Christmas Carrol? Must you foerever be real life Scrooges – turning your backs on these suffering starving defenseless helpless children of God – whose pitiful plight YOU HAVE BEEN RESPONSIBLE FOR?

    One day – as all mortals – you WILL lie on your death beds – gasping for that last breath of life and wonder what you could have done to help suffering innocnet humanity – knowing that God ( whether you respect His presence or NOT) WILL judge yyou for your willful lack of human compassion for those with NO HOPE

    Gentlemen – this is NOT a situation like in the wealthiest nation on earth where our ‘underpriviledged’ children will not have I-pods or Nintendo’s latest games. NONE of our children are in fear of being murdered 24-7 like I have WITNESSED in Gaza. NONE of them have to fear witnessing their mothers or sisters being raped AT WILL OR murdered in cold blood by an occupying military – as I have witnessed. None of our underpriviledged children will have to eat grass to stay alive in a country like the US where 70% of our children are either fat or just plain obese from glutteny .

    Sirs – you will ‘pass this way but once – so do what good you may, while you can’. Acts of REAL charity – and I do NOT mean the self-serving hypocrisy of asking your CPA how much $ you should give to charity to use as a tax writeoff — will be viewed by God with favor.

    This is real – please help these poor people. This is a unique situation where their plight was NOT brough upon themsleves by folly or irresponsibility – but by OUR OWN BLOODY HANDS. I swear to the God of us all – on all I hold sacred – that this is the truth.

    If you wish to know what has happened from one who has witnessed it firsthand – please contact me through this webbsite and I will reveal the truth to you. I am a mainsteran veteran – father – former aerospace scientist – foreign diplomat and Green Beret airborne commander with a flawless civic and military record. These people desparately need our help – I implore you – in the name of our Lord Christ.

    For over Sixty years the World has been “guilt tripped” and milked of “reparations” by the SAME people who invented the very crimes of which they complain. Now they piously proclaim their desire for “peace, peace”, as they parade these rules around their places of worship, and KISS the scrolls on which these odious “rules” are codified.

    It was the Israelites that introduced to the world, and codified in their religion, Bigotry, Genocide, everything CRIMINAL that they now condemn in the Nazis
    The Nazis called themselves “superior” people. The CHOSEN People of GOD do not like the competition.
    The Nazis stole property from their victims.
    Aside from stealing ALL of Palestine, as well documented in the Torah(the 1st 5 books of the Bible) “for a place to live”,
    which they are repeating today, and the Nazis copied and called “growth room” how about ……..
    Exodus c.3 v.22
    Exodus c.11 v.2
    Exodus c.12 v.35-36 (obviously “Thou SHALT NOT STEAL” does not apply to NON-Jews.)

    The Nazis killed their own crippled and crazy.
    Numbers c.5 v.2-4 “putting them out of camp” means go die in the desert

    The Nazis killed homosexuals and sexual “deviants” …………..
    Leviticus c.20 v.13 well, really the whole chapter

    The Nazis killed those who dissented from the “party line” ……………..
    Exodus c.32 v.27
    Numbers c.11 v.1-2
    Numbers c.16 all
    Numbers c.21 v.5-6
    Numbers v.26 v.10

    The Nazis held themselves apart from other people……………….
    NO “diversity”, NO “integration”:
    Numbers v25 v.4-8
    Deuteronomy c.14 v.2

    The jews complain that Nazis demonized those they did not like, calling them perverts, parasites, unclean …..
    The Jews today call YOU “Gentile, GOYIM, Shiska” pejorative names equal to “the ‘N'” word.
    Demonizing, DEHUMANIZATION, is commonly used in order to justify killing people.
    The entire Torah/Books of Moses is a dehumanization of all NON-israelites.
    Accusing others of deviant sexuality, unclean practices, worshiping the “wrong” god, eating the “wrong” food.
    HATE codified in the Bible.

    FINALLY, the BIG evil ………..
    The Nazis engaged in GENOCIDE, deliberately killing men, women and children… because of their difference:
    After DEhumanizing the Native People of Palestine, the Israelites introduced GENOCIDE to the World:
    Numbers c.21 v.03 Canaanites
    Numbers c.21 v.24 Amorites
    Numbers c.21 v.33 Bashan
    Numbers c.31 all Midianites
    Numbers c.32 v. more Amorites
    Deuteronomy c.2 v.34 People of Heshbon
    Deuteronomy c.3 v.6 really the whole chapter. threescore cities
    Joshua c.12 A list of victims of Israeli GENOCIDE
    Where are THEIR “holocaust” Memorials!

    Genocide codified in their religion:
    Numbers c.33 v.31-34
    Deuteronomy c.7 v.2
    Deuteronomy c.12 v.28-30
    Deuteronomy c.20 v.11-16

    Terrorism codified in their religion:
    Deuteronomy c.2 v.2
    Deuteronomy c.7 v.16

    BURNING FLESH is “A sweet savor unto the Lord” – JUST A FEW of MANY MANY examples
    Exodus c.29 v.18, 25, 41&42
    Leviticus c.1 v.17
    Leviticus c.2 v.2&&9&12
    Leviticus c.3 v.5

    Now some will say “Oh, the Bible is not FACT, it is allegory or whatever.”
    To which I answer, FINE, then so is the portion where God supposedly “gave” Israel the land of Palestine.
    You cannot deny one verse, then use the next verse as justification to murder and steal land from People.

    For millenia the Jews have WAILED about their abject slavery under “Torturous, Inhumane”
    conditions in Egypt. As a matter of fact, their wailing is the same as their wailing
    about the “Torturous, Inhumane” treatment by the Nazis.
    How is it that “impoverished, abject slaves” have lambs to slaughter, flocks and herds?
    Exodus c.12 v.21
    Exodus c.12 v.32&38
    Exodus c.35 v.22-23
    How is it that “abject impoverished slaves” have neighbors with GOLD and SILVER and JEWELS to LOAN to these “slaves”
    Exodus c.3 v.22
    Exodus c.11 v.2
    Exodus c.12 v.35-36

    tell santa no to bother getting a jewish visa he wont be allowed in land anywhere anyway

    so i suggest he cross the border on foot

  6. #6 by Ray O Hobe on 12/22/2008 - 9:34

    once most of gazan’s used to live on their land in what is now Israel, they did not need anyone’s help to feed their children, they lived a good life, a peaceful life , but that was before the savage jews from around the world came with guns and robed them of everything they have, those nomads (westren jews) are such savages that they don’t feel the pain of humans as if they are not of this human race, like wild dogs they run around killing others children to fatin up their own savages.
    but just like a beast, they shit where they eat, and soon they’ll have to eat the shit they breed.

    May God bless you. Please advised as to how I can help.

  8. #8 by Falesteeni on 12/22/2008 - 9:34

    Sorry Mahmoud , But Santa have been ZIONIZED as well!

  9. #9 by Tarjumaan on 12/23/2008 - 9:34

    Every year listening to Christmas carols I think of the real and still little town of Bethlehem and wonder how it is that Christians in the US can’t make the connection to the modern town that is under military occupation and many of whose Christian residents have given up and fled the city.
    Of course the situation in Gaza is even worse.

    I am amazed by how willing so many Arabs are to forgive us our many trespasses against them, and how few Americans can forgive the Arabs’ far fewer and lesser in degree trespasses against us.

    BTW, I’ve totally given up on caring what the Old Testament says. The New Testament and Quran are far more positive and inspiring.

  10. #10 by RME on 12/23/2008 - 9:34

    Hallo Mahmoud El-Yousseph

    Well, I’m sorry to tell you, there is no Santa!

    Many so called Christians who believe in Santa are the very same ones who hold that Jews and the present state of Israel are the chosen and favored of God — you know, the very Jews who are responsible for the crimes that have been commited against the Palestinian people for over sixty years.

    These same ‘Christians’ say they rejoice in the gospel of Jesus Christ — the Prince of Peace! — it boggles the mind.

    Dear Mahmoud, of course you know that the Jews are also mainly responsible for the global financial mess we now find ourselves in; times may get really really rough for many people. Maybe there is a hope that some ‘Christians’ will finally wake up to what has been going on for a long time and beginn to see your side of the story — maybe, but I don’t really think so.

    Dear Mahmoud, may God bless — and forget about Santa.

  11. #11 by Bertiz Benhamid on 12/23/2008 - 9:34

    Dear Mahmoud
    When Arab Governments would finally Unite and stop stabbing each other in the back
    just to please the Puppet Masters then Santa would be able to come around throughout the year.
    Perhaps one day the Arab Governments will learn from their mistakes and rescue Palestine and it’s people from the monster that is occupying the Holy Land since 1948
    and bring happiness to all those who love Palestine and it’s indigenous.

  12. #12 by Mahmoud El-Yousseph on 12/23/2008 - 9:34

    Thank you Mark and for those who expressed sympathy and solidarity for the besieged people of Gaza. Many of you asked, “how can we help?”

    I was informed that KinderUsa.org is a well regarded organization that does lots of really GOOD WORK in Gaza. They raised badly needed funds. They are creative, and some of their money finance projects that provides regular income for many needed families. I have a lot of respect for them and for the wonderful ladies that run the organization. Again, thank you for your genuine concern, and my God reward reward you.

    Gaza – the real warsaw ghetto

    isnt 60+ years of suffering under zionazi rule ENOUGH!!!

    What the zionazis have done to the Palis, is what they want to do to the rest of the world.

    PS CHOSEN – Its a VERB not a Noun

  15. #15 by A. Scott on 12/24/2008 - 9:34

    Dear Brother Mahmoud El-Yousseph,

    Christian greetings in the precious Name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    As a Christian I believe neither in Christmas nor Santa however I have read your letter and believe in your cause 365 days of the year.

    Bible Believers’ Church will republish your “Letter to Santa” in our free weekly Newsletter. We are ourselves victims of thirteen years’ pernicious persecution by Zionists through the national media, followed by four years’ defending ourselves against frivolous and vexatious litigation in the Australian Federal Court in a case that was dismissed.

    I am in no position to respond to your appeal in a material sense. However, our Church has a most important Message to share with Christians in Gaza. It concerns the ministry of the prophet William Branham (1909-1965) who was the “Elijah” of Malachi 4:5-6 and the “angel” of Revelation 10:7. His Message restored the faith of our apostolic fathers, finished the mystery of God and introduced the second or ‘parousia’ Coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. It was the “midnight cry” of Matthew 25:6 and the “shout” of I Thessalonians 4:16 confirmed by the heavenly “Voice” of Revelation 18:4 spiritually awakening the wise and foolish virgin and calling them out from Rome and her apostate (once) Protestant daughter churches into maturity “in the unity of the faith” (Ephesians 4:13) for “the manifestation of the Sons of God” (Romans 8:19) and the translation (I Corinthians 15:46-57).

    Time is of the essence as the Gentile dispensation will very soon end. and the Lord will turn His hand upon an election of Israelites descended from Abraham, Isaac and Israel, not non-Semitic self-styled Jews.

    Yours sincerely in the love and service of our Lord Jesus Christ.

    May God bless you and the Palestinians who are in need of so much. There is no Santa (I know that you know that) he is but another idol that the so called men of God and trust to be Christian’s teach their children to worship. They lie to their children and think its okay in Gods eyes. Sorry all you guilty ones but the God I worship hates lies and idols. God teaches to love your neighbor as you love yourself. If God wanted his birthday to be celebrated he would have Made it known. So when all you wolfs in sheep’s clothing are having a festive time along with all you trust to be Christian’s that lie and teach your children to worship idols, how can you as a human being not reach out to you Palestinians brothers and sisters in need of so much. they are not asking for toys, games or electronics but for basics, food, water and medicine things that sustain life. While you look upon your children’s faces think about this, it maybe your child in need of all these things one day. there are a lot of tent cities going up right here in America who are in need also.

    May God bless you Mahmoud and my Palestinians sisters and brothers along with my American brothers and sisters in so much need.

    My heart goes out to the people of Gaza and all Indiginous peoples around the world who suffer needlessly at the hands of Colonizers. Whether they are English, or Zionist or whatever.
    It is such a shame that good people that work hard and pay taxes cannot influence gov’ts and demand that they do the right things!
    This world is run by the corrupt, and they don’t give a damn for under-represented peoples such as the Pali’s. I wish there was something I could do.

  18. #18 by Ralle on 12/25/2008 - 9:34

    America is playing “God” in the whole world and this happens on the order of the jewish elite. That’s a fact! You imperialists, fight where it is nessesary and not only where you smell profit. You Americans start thinking, you want to rule the world with your brainless politics – ridiculous.
    I’m very sorry for your country. I’m not proud to be German, but I would never want to be US-American.

  19. #19 by Yousef M. El-Yousseph on 12/26/2008 - 9:34

    Excellent piece dad,
    You have a remarkable way of illustrating complex issues in a way that can be understood by anyone. I think I remember in history class way back in highschool learning about another group of peoplethat were pushed out of theyer homelands into small “camps” and were fenced off and leaft to eventually die. There are many similarities between that of tha palestinians and the american indian. As well as, the jews who, oh wait they are the ones doing this….. Mabey we should learn from history instead of repeat it.

  20. #20 by linda on 12/26/2008 - 9:34

    If the UN is refused – how will private Aide get through?
    Who will deliver Aide? There needsto be another mediator there with the strength to
    throw the Israelis out.

  21. #21 by Ralle on 12/27/2008 - 9:34

    The human race has to learn from history, but the mainstream press makes this impossible. Everything that’s publicated, is censored first. Look, what the stream does. Every bomb from Israel is correct in the eyes of the American government. Americans and Israelis punish the Palestinian stones, thrown by kids, with missiles. What kind of right is this? Look at the wall around Palestina – higher than the Berlin wall. Why? Whole Palestina is a concentration kamp build by jews. I think they made copies of the ones from the “Third Reich”. I know that muslims don’t want war. I know that muslims want to be respected as they are. I know that the muslimic culture is nearly perfect in comparison to the pseudo-democratic and decadent system of the US. And for all, the whole world knows, that the terrorism is made by the biggest terrorist called U.S. I’m very sorry for what’s happening and I hope that Israels and Americas star will fall very soon. We don’t need countries and governements like these.
    Please answer if you like.

    wow…tht is one thought-provoking article.
    Thanks for the article brother, and its sad, that Jews are at the cornerstone of every crime, disaster, violence and mess in the world.
    They have gotten everything they need yet they whine for more. What a pathetic people

  23. #23 by John on 01/07/2009 - 9:34


    This is somewhat late but I would like to express my solidarity with you and all the people in Israel and Palestine at this time. Unfortunately I am unable to extend any material aid to you, only our prayers. I would also like to remind people reading this article that notions of right and wrong and historical accuracy are rather superfluous and self-serving at a time when people are suffering. You are missing the point if you are still concerned with who did what to whom. Whether you’re Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Atheist, etc is unimportant; I pray that you receive the help you asked for. Good luck and God Bless!
