Jewish extremists harass Orthodox worshippers in Jerusalem

June 22, 2016

A group of Jewish extremists attempted to disrupt services held by an Orthodox community on June 20 at the Cenacle, the site of the Last Supper.

Israeli police maintained a fragile peace as protesters shouted at the Orthodox worshippers, saying that the Christian prayer services were an "abomination." The Cenacle-- the upper room where the Last Supper took place-- is located in a building also revered by Jews as the Tomb of David.

    Does CWN publish a disproportionate number of articles about destructive or unjust acts by Israel or Israeli "extremists" against Christians. It seems that these barbarous acts take place on almost a regular basis. If aggression against Christians is becoming more and more common in Israel, I am thankful to CWN for alerting us to this trend. Keep the information coming.
