Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov said on Wednesday that hundreds of Palestinian Christians from the Gaza Strip will be allowed to enter Israel in order to visist Bethlehem for Christmas. The decision, he continued, highlights "the inhuman brutality" of the Hamas regime in Gaza Strip that does not, in contrast, allow the Red Cross to visit captured IDF soldier Gilad Schalit. "We hope that in the spirit of Christmas, the central holiday for Christians around the world, that Hamas will initiate steps to free Shalit," Misezhnikov said.
