St. George’s Church Near Beit Jala Attacked by Muslims
It is Muslims (Not Jews) Who Attack Christians in Israel!
Lela Gilbert, author of Saturday People, Sunday People, Israel through the Eyes of a Christian Sojourner, reported:
A Bethlehem Greek Orthodox Church (St. George’s Church~Khadar~near Beit Jala) was attacked by Muslims during its annual St. George’s Day services on May 6. Some local Muslims either tried to park a car too close the church and/or tried to enter the church during a service honoring St. George~the initial instigation isn’t clear. But when the intruders were asked to leave, one of them stabbed a Christian man who was outside the church serving as a guard. He was hospitalized. Several then started throwing stones at the church. 7 or 8 Christians were injured and some physical damage was done~broken windows etc. The police didn’t show up for an hour.
The Palestinian Authority is responsible for the area, they do Not seem to care if Christians or Jews are attacked
