Anti-Christian graffiti mars site of Last Supper

December 16, 2009

Anti-Christian graffiti has begun to appear on the walls of the Franciscan church in Jerusalem abutting the Cenacle, the site of the Last Supper. The messages sent by obscene slogans and demands for “Christians Out” have been reinforced by urination on the front door of the church. The vandalism is believed to be the work of Jewish extremists, who have been provoked by sensationalized newspaper accounts of the negotiations between the Holy See and the Israeli government toward completion of a juridical accord. Some reports have claimed that the Vatican wants to claim sovereignty over Mount Zion.
