Hebrew-Language Anti-Christian Graffiti Found on Jerusalem Monastery

JERUSALEM, January 17, 2016 (WAFA) – Hebrew-language anti-Christian graffiti Sunday was found on the walls of the Dormition Monastery on Mount Zion, in occupied Jerusalem.

Sources at the Latin Patriarchate in Jerusalem said that a new act of vandalism took place against Christians in Jerusalem, noting that the racist graffiti was sprayed in the Hebrew language on the walls and doors of the monastery .

The source added that the sprayed graffiti was not only against Jesus, but also called for slaughtering Christians and sending them to hell.

To be noted, other numerous such incidents have previously took place against Christian sites, including churches, monasteries, and cemeteries, noting that these incidents coincided with calls made by Jewish settler organizations to expel Christians from Jerusalem and to burn churches.

Israeli sources revealed that the leader of the extremist anti-assimilation group Lehava, Bentzi Gopstein, recently renewed his calls to torch churches in occupied Jerusalem.

He also called for ‘making obstacles towards the expansion of Christianity and Islam in the Palestinian occupied city of Jerusalem,’ said the Days of Palestine on its website.

Gopstein has previously ‘called for a ban on Christmas celebrations in the country and the banishment of Christians, who he referred to as ‘blood-sucking vampires’, from the land,’ reported the International Business Times.
