Christians under attack in Jerusalem

Christians in Jerusalem’s Old City ‘under threat’ from settlers

Church leaders claim priests are being verbally abused and spat at while property is being vandalised in ancient walled city

Christians in Jerusalem’s Old City say their presence at the geographical heart of their faith is under threat from intimidation and aggressive property acquisition by hardline Jewish settlers.

According to Church leaders, priests are being verbally abused and spat at, and property vandalised.

The churches say they are facing onslaught on three fronts: a war of attrition waged by hardline settlers; unprecedented tax demands by Jerusalem city council; and a proposal to allow the expropriation of church land sold to private developers.

Theophilos III, the Greek Orthodox patriarch of Jerusalem and the most senior Christian leader in the Holy Land, told the Guardian: “Today the church faces a most severe threat at the hands of certain settler groups. The settlers are persistent in their attempts to erode the presence of the Christian community in Jerusalem.

“These radical settler groups are highly organised. Over the last years we have witnessed the desecration and vandalism of an unprecedented number of churches and holy sites and receive growing numbers of reports from priests and local worshippers who have been assaulted and attacked.

“Where the authorities are concerned, this behaviour goes largely unchecked and unpunished.”

Catholic Politicians Speak – Roberto Fiore

“The threat of World War as a result of the confrontation in Syria is greater even than during the Cuban Missile Crisis. And the blame for this rests squarely with the Washington ‘Deep State’ and their Zionist allies, on account of their refusal to accept the fact that the Syrian and Russian governments and their allies have defeated ISIS and the attempt to use radical Islamism as a weapon of imperialist foreign policy.”

Catholics threatened with Genocide

A big demonstration in Lviv, yesterday, by followers of the World War II Nazi-collaborators who founded the Ukrainian State upon the genocidal butchering of up to 100,000 Polish men, women and children in Volhynia and Galicia beginning in March 1943.

On the banner in the first photo above, along with the anti-Polish statement, is a picture of Shukhevych, one of the Nazi-collaborationist leaders behind the genocide of Catholic Poles.

“The atrocities were carried out indiscriminately and without restraint. The victims, regardless of their age or gender, were routinely tortured to death. Norman Davies in ‘No Simple Victory’ gives a short, but shocking description of the massacres. He writes:

‘Villages were torched. Roman Catholic priests were axed or crucified. Churches were burned with all their parishioners. Isolated farms were attacked by gangs carrying pitchforks and kitchen knives. Throats were cut. Pregnant women were bayoneted. Children were cut in two. Men were ambushed in the field and led away. The perpetrators could not determine the province’s future. But at least they could determine that it would be a future without Poles.’

An OUN order from early 1944 stated:

‘Liquidate all Polish traces. Destroy all walls in the Catholic Church and other Polish prayer houses. Destroy orchards and trees in the courtyards so that there will be no trace that someone lived there… Pay attention to the fact that when something remains that is Polish, then the Poles will have pretensions to our land’. ”

Yesterday’s demonstration, which glorified the genocidal massacre of 100,000 Catholic Poles in the 1940’s, called for the ‘removal’ of Polish-speakers from western Ukraine.

To comprehend the seriousness of this threat to Catholic Poles it is enough to consider the terror these monsters have launched against Russian-speakers in eastern Ukraine following the George Soros and CIA facilitated coup that turned Ukraine over to them.
