Des colons extrémistes brûlent une Église à Jérusalem
30/10/2010 Jérusalem – PNN – Des colons extrémistes on mis le feu à une Église vendredi dernier, située dans la rue des prophètes à Jérusalem, entre la vieille ville et Jérusalem-ouest. (…) L’Eglise avait été construite en 1897, et avait accueillie jusqu’en 1948 le collège biblique palestinien, avant que la plus part des paroissiens ne fuient la ville durant la Nakba.
Iran Condemns Burning of Ancient Church in Occupied Quds (Jerusalem)
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iran’s Foreign Ministry on Sunday condemned the arson attack by extremist Jewish settlers on an old church in the Western sector of the occupied Quds.
“The Islamic Republic of Iran believes that the Zionists’ provocative and sacrilegious act against a historical church in the occupied Quds is another instance of the Zionist regime’s disrespect for divine faiths and religious sanctities,” Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehman-Parast said in a statement on Sunday.
The statement also reminded the previous insults to the sacred and holy places of Muslims and Christians by the Zionist regime of Israel, specially Zionists’ measures against Muslims’ the Al-Aqsa Mosque, and reiterated that all these examples prove the regime does not at all feel any respect for divine religions and their believers.
Mehman-Parast further called on the international community to condemn the recent insult to Christians’ ancient church on the occupied territories and adopt immediate measures to stop such desecrations. (more…)
Shown is an image of a statue of the Virgin Mary which an Israeli Army tank fired upon on March 14, 2002. The hated statue stood high above the Roman Catholic Holy Family Hospital and Orphanage in Jerusalem adjacent to the Vatican flag. The Israelis fired on the statue at close range. It was not an accident. It was an act of hatred reflecting a traditional Jewish hospitality to Christian sites and relics in the Holy Land. (Inset, the Virgin’s face.)

As early as December 1955, not long after the institution of the Jewish state of Israel, Father Leonard Feeney, a Boston-based Roman Catholic clergyman, compiled the following list of Christian churches and other institutions that had been attacked or otherwise destroyed by the newly-ensconced Jewish occupation regime in the Holy Land.
In assembling this shocking list — which would come as a complete surprise to modern-day Christians who believe that Israel has been a good friend to Christians in the Holy Land — Father Feeney noted that his list did not include the loss in lives and property suffered by the nearly one million Arabs (Christian and Muslim alike) who had been evicted from their ancient homes during the then-seven years since Jews had seized power over Palestine. And, needless to say, since Feeney first compiled the list, there have been many more examples of such Jewish attacks. The clergyman’s summary of Jewish destruction of Christian sites follows….
The Jews have defiled and destroyed the following Church buildings: the Church of Saint John the Baptist at Am Karim; the Church of the Beatitudes at Capharnaum; the Church of Mensa Christi on the shores of the Sea of Galilee; the Church of Saint Peter at Tiberias; the Cenacle (the place ofthe Last Supper) at Jerusalem; the Convent of Mary Reparatrix at Jerusalem; the Convent and Hospice of Notre Dame at Jerusalem; the Convent of the Sisters of Saint Ann at Haifa; the Franciscan Convent at Tiberias; the Patriarchal Seminary at Beit-Jala, the Salesian houses at Cremisan; the Sisters’ Convent at Am Karim; the School of the Sisters of Notre Dame de Sion at Katamon; the Sisters’ residence at Capharnaum; and the church and rectory at Ikret. Catholic authorities have estimated that the Jews have destroyed Church property in the Holy Land at the rate of more than two million dollars’ worth a year. To enumerate only French Catholic institutions, they have demolished four hospitals, 16 dispensaries, two hospices, four seminaries, 32 schools and orphanages, and seven retreat houses.
Among the countless other desecrations we might mention, none is more heart-rending than that of Jerusalem’s Church of the Dormition — the magnificent Romanesque shrine to the Mother of God which was pillaged by Israeli soldiers and then turned into a Jewish dance hall for the young men and women of Haganah. It was only after a hundred such incidents that the Apostolic Delegate, Archbishop Hughes, unequivocally charged that there is now in operation a « deliberate Jewish effort to decimate the Arabs and to destroy Christianity in Palestine. »
