Arson at Galilee church

An awful case of arson took place at a church in the Galilee:
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Thursday said that the shameful arson attack against the Church of the Multiplication at Tabgha on the shores of the Sea of Galilee was not only an attack against Christians, but against all of Israel.

“The shocking arson of the church is an attack on all of us,” said Netanyahu in an official statement. “Israel’s freedom of religion is a cornerstone of our values and it is anchored in the law. We will mete out justice to those responsible for this atrocious act. We have no room for hatred and intolerance in our society.”

The attack causes serious damage to the church. Police determined the fire was set intentionally after finding Hebrew graffiti vowing to destroy idol worshippers and discovering that the blaze had started from several different locations around the facility.

Sixteen Jewish youth were briefly arrested and brought in for questioning, but were later released due to a lack of evidence.

Nevertheless, Netanyahu, President Reuven Rivlin and many more government officials were adamant that those responsible would be brought to justice. Most agreed that not only had the attack on Israeli Christians been unacceptable, but had stained the Jewish state.
Whether or not this was the work of Jewish crackpots is unclear. It could also have been the work of Islamofascists using Hebrew as a disguise (and last year, a clue of that turned up in the Shuafat riots). But one thing is clear - this was a most abominable crime that took place, and the perpetrators should be punished for it.
