CWN Editor's Note: Vandals caused “huge damage” at a Catholic shrine in Beit Jimal, Israel, on September 20. Bishop Giacinto Boulos Marcuzzo, the apostolic vicar for Jerusalem, said that the attack was the work of “fanatics.” The vandalism appeared to be the latest in a series of attacks by Jewish extremists against Christian churches.

    From the cited article: "In recent years, extremist Jews and settlers have attacked many Christian and Muslim targets in accordance to what has been called 'price tag policy', namely the practice Israeli extremists of imposing a 'price' on Christians and Muslims for having taken 'their land'. Once limited to areas bordering the West Bank and Jerusalem, it has spread to Israel proper." Regarding the claim of "their land," note in Gal 3 that the promises were made also to Gentiles through Abraham.
