Now that the US has had its ritual 10 minutes hate of a real live white racist killer, we go back to other news, news virtually no one in the US will hear at all and certainly the Pope won’t make a peep about this, either: Israel church where Jesus ‘fed 5k’ burnt down in arson attack (news from Britain which doesn’t have the high level of censorship as here in the US):
In recent years, mosques and churches have been targeted by vandals in similar attacks. They are often attributed to extremist Jews in West Bank settlements.
Such attacks are widely condemned across the political spectrum in Israel.
The site is owned by the German Roman Catholic Church, and Berlin’s envoy to Israel Andreas Michaelis said he was ‘shocked’ by the incident.
‘I strongly condemn this attack and every form of violence’ against places of worship or people working in them, he said in a statement.
‘Religious institutions must be as well protected in Israel as they are in Germany and Europe.’
The neglect, destruction and abuse of these places of worship in the intervening 56 years, however, suggest that Israel’s intentions were cynical rather than honourable. There is hardly a week that passes without news emerging of a fresh, and unpunished, offence against an ancient mosque, church, graveyard or shrine. Even when such abuse springs from the actions of individual Jewish citizens, such as vandalism, it is clearly sanctioned by public policy and its implementation by state officials.
Here are some videos of earlier Jewish attacks on churches in Israel:

Condemning hate crimes in the US while utterly ignoring these same crimes in Israel is at the core of the cynical, hypocritical system we live in here.
