Anti-Christian graffiti in Jerusalem blamed on Jewish extremists
May 09, 2014
Church leaders in Jerusalem have expressed dismay upon the discovery of anti-Christian graffiti on the walls of a Romanian church in the ancient city.
Anti-Christian slogans, written in Hebrew, renewed concerns as the time approaches for a visit by Pope Francis to Israel. Police have reinforced security plans. Israeli justice minister Tzipi Livni voiced concerns about Jewish extremists, blaming acts of intolerance on “a determined ideological group, which does not accept any form of authority, and opposes the values of the state of Israel in which we believe.”
