Jerusalem patriarch condemns Israeli acts of hate against Christians

Pierbattista-Pizzaballa-300x160
Ramallah, Feb 4 (Prensa Latina) The Latin patriarch of Jerusalem Pierbattista Pizzaballa on Saturday strongly condemned sabotage by Israeli extremists against Christians sites in occupied East Jerusalem.

In a statement, the Catholic archbishop stated a Jewish American broke into the Church of the Flagellation on the Via Dolorosa in Jerusalem´s Old City and vandalized a statue of Jesus.

The incident was the fifth in just a few weeks and last week a group of tourists was attacked by a Jewish group who turned the area into what looks like a battlefield.

“Two weeks ago, a Christian cemetery in Jerusalem was vandalized, and writings calling for death to Christians were written on the walls of one of the monasteries in the Armenian quarter,” said Pizzaballa.

“We are following with serious concern, and we strongly condemn these increasing acts of hate and violence against the Christian community in Israel,” he added.
