Jerusalem patriarchate laments anti-Christian graffiti

Catholic World News - January 22, 2014

The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem lamented the appearance of anti-Christian graffiti on the walls of a Catholic institution.

“This is not the first time that graffiti ‘calling for the expulsion of Christians’ were discovered on the wall of an institution belonging to the Catholic Church, not to speak of other Christian institutions,” according to a report on the patriarchate’s website.

“The shock over the incident has prompted the Christian community in Jerusalem to protest strongly, not for the first time, denouncing these acts that reveal a deeper problem that concerns Israeli society in general and Jerusalem in particular; and which seriously calls into question religious tolerance within the society that encompasses the State of Israel, which cannot manage to prevent this type of religious intolerance,” the report continued.
