Israeli Terrorists Torched the Greek Orthodox Church Monastery in Jerusalem

Greek Orthodox Church MonasteryThe Greek Orthodox Church monastery of Sion in Jerusalem was set on fire and vandalized early on Thursday. Hate graffiti denigrating Jesus sprayed on one of the walls of the Holy place.

The area where the latest attack occurred is one of the more vulnerable areas concerning price tag terrorist’s attacks. In the past two years, dozens of various terror crimes, including the assault of Christian clergymen, graffiti, punctured tired, desecrated grave-sites, smashed gravestones and more.

In May 2014, a nearby church was set aflame shortly after Pope Francis’ visit. In 2013, vandals smashed Ottoman ceramic tiles at King David’s Tomb, thus destroying the last traces to the compound’s Muslim past. Later that year, vandals smashed gravestones of prominent historical figures at a Protestant cemetery in the occupied Jerusalam.

Church leaders have often expressed concern about monks and clergy’s fears of walking around the so-called “Mount Zion” in uniform due to spitting and harassment.

The Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III Thursday condemned the ongoing attacks against the Christian and Muslim sites in the occupied Palestinian Territories, the latest of which was setting fire to the Greek Orthodox Church monastery of Sion in Jerusalem.

In a written statement, the Patriarchate said targeting churches and mosques is caused by the spread of racism and hatred in light of the absence of peace and the dominance of extreme settlers’ groups known as Price Tags groups.

Settlers torched a room of the Greek Orthodox Church monastery of Sion, which houses the patriarchal seminary, and sprayed graffiti offending to Jesus Christ on the walls.

Fires were set to the school room and a toilet facility used by priests and seminarians inside the monastery building, causing extensive material damage. No casualties were reported in the attack.

Patriarch Theophilos III confirmed that Christians will always be an authentic part of the holy land’s past and future. The Greek Orthodox Patriarchate will remain the oldest institution in the world and the mother of all churches.

He added that the criminal assailants will not terrorize this church or its seminarians and called on official authorities to investigate the attack and many others targeting sacred sites, affirming that racism, hatred and disrespect for all religions are the enemy of all.

On February 25, 2015, Extremist Jewish settlers set a mosque on fire and sprayed anti-Arab graffiti on its walls, in a village near Bethlehem, according to local sources.

Head of the Jab’a village council, Numan Hamdan said: “A group of settlers broke into the village, located southwest of Bethlehem, at about 4AM before they set a mosque on fire. The mosque was partially damaged as local residents were able to put the blaze off.”

Meanwhile, Israeli settlers from the illegal settlement of Beitar Illit near Bethlehem opened fire at homes in the nearby village of Nahalin, according to witnesses.

The witnesses said a group of armed settlers were riding motorbikes when they pointed their rifles and opened gunfire towards Palestinian homes in the village.

No casualties were reported, yet the terrorist attack on the village caused a state of fear among local residents, especially children.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement condemning the terror attack, which coincides with the 21st anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque massacre, saying the attack was systematic rather than individual.

“This [attack] comes as part of an official Israeli campaign aimed at provoking sectarianism,” the ministry said. “This attack uncovers the high level of extremism that has recently grown up in the Israeli society.”

Jewish settlers have repeatedly attacked Palestinian property and worship places. Settler violence includes property and mosque arson, stone-throwing, uprooting of crops and olive trees, attacks on vulnerable homes, among others.

According to the Israeli human rights group B’Tselem, Israeli security forces do not always deploy in advance to protect Palestinians from settler violence, even when such violence could be anticipated. “In some cases, rather than restricting violent settlers, Israeli security forces impose restrictions on the Palestinians.”

On February 26, 2015, Israeli settlers sprayed racist graffiti on the walls of a school in ‘Urif village to the south of Nablus, said a local source.

Secretary of the Local Village Council Adel Amer stated that a group of settlers from the nearby illegal Israeli settlement of Yizhar sprayed anti-Arab graffiti in Hebrew on the secondary School. “Death to Arabs” was scrawled on the school walls.

Palestinian local media outlets reported that the perpetrators were allegedly affiliated to the Hilltop Youth, a group of notoriously hardliner Israeli nationalists who often live in illegal outposts in the occupied West Bank.

The group has been known to target Palestinians and their property in so-called ‘price-tag’ attacks.

Ghassan Daghlas, who monitors settler activities in northern West Bank, was quoted accused the Israeli government of “giving free rein to extremist settlers to carry out attacks against Palestinians in an attempt to win their votes in the upcoming Knesset elections.”

    Ya Allah. This is atrocious behaviour. With each new outrage by the Zionists and with their mirror image in the Middle East the self styled Islamic State the differences between the two become harder and harder to see. These Satanic cults are assaulting all human decency and they wage war upon all who do not dance to their demonic and perverse demands. How long before the world wakes up and sees the darkness growing and realities we must unite as a race to confront these evils and root them out if we want any sort of future worth having.

    Hi, I’m a Greek.

    Jews are always preferable to muslim garbage. May the global war against Islam begin soon


  • Eileen K.

    I totally agree with Rabbitnexus regarding the atrocious behaviour of the extremist Jewish settlers in the Occupied Territories and Jerusalem. The latest torching of the Greek Orthodox Church/Monastery in Jerusalem is just one of many such attacks on both Christian and Muslim places of worship. This is, indeed, Satanic in nature. Why torch and vandalize religious sites? These vandalisms are an assault on all human decency and reveal their perverse, Satanic nature.
    As Rabbitnexus has said, the entire world must unite as a whole to confront these evils and root them out if we want a future worth having.

    • …i will join you in your support of Rabbitnexus’ thinking. If any good comes from these events, it is that the world is much smaller than “they” think thanks to the Information Age. We are uniting against such madness, void of Grace, anathema to the very fundamental principal that as Individuals we are all equals, and that as Persons we have the Grace to be loving, because by any Faith, there is no better way to serve, what is one God.

      This is a Hate Crime, and i hope the Government of Israel acts accordingly.

  • kostas, you are more then welcome to take the jewish garbage from the holy land to your greece and live with them and send us back our muslims. perhaps a brief reading of the jews in your midst in salonika in history and they machinations would help you to dispel your ignorance of what they did to your country previously and intend to do in the future!

    but then hate filled perverts like yourself rarely let sunlight into your brain!

    These Jewish terror attacks on Christians are not an unknown phenomena; when one read the book of Acts in the Bible, he will discover that the early Christian Church was persecuted by Jews. According to the lovers of Israel, the “Christian Zionists”, are these Jewish terror attacks the result of persecutions of Jews by Christians and the Christian Church in the past. If they would take the trouble to read their Bible a little better, they would found out that the Jews were the true persecutors of the Church, not the way around. And as this article proves, there is nothing changed by now…

    There is no difference because the Zionists created the “self styled Islamic State” just as they created Hamas as a religious alternative to the PLO. They want to keep the Arabs, Turks, Iranians, and Pakistanis as backward and stupid as possible.

    Judaism created Islam to destroy Christianity but it lost control of it because the vast majority of Arabs who were forced to convert to Islam were originally Christians.

    When Jews gained control of the Ottoman Empire it used the Muslims to genocide the Armenian Christians and steal their land and property with the help of their Bolshevik buddies in the former Soviet Union. The “Young Turk” crypto Jews murdered over a million Armenian Christians. They were no match for their Bolshevik buddies who slaughtered 37.6 million Slavic Christians and then stole their land.

    Little Armenian Christian girls were forced to convert to Islam after the Turks had slaughtered their parents on orders from the ironically named Jewish “Committee of Union and Progress.”

    Their protocol #5 reads:

    “Apply measures to exterminate all males under 50, priests and teachers, leave girls and children to be Islamized. ”

    “Memorandum by the Committee of Union and Progress outlining the strategy for implementing the Armenian Genocide”:


    “And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones, and took the spoil of all their cattle, and all their flocks, and all their goods… ‘And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?’…
    Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. ”

    They operate by the principle of controlling their opposition. Abu Nidal, the left-wing terrorist to whom the doors were open in the Jewish controlled Soviet Union claimed that Yasser Arafat was the son of a Moroccan Jew. But Nidal himself probably worked for the Mossad because his terrorism almost always helped Israel win the PR battle against the Palestinians. According to Patrick Seale (Abu Nidal: A Gun For Hire). Nidal murdered 600 Palestinians in his efforts to terrorize them into becoming terrorists.
