Arson attack on church where Jesus fed 5,000


A fire has gutted part of the church where
Christians believe Jesus performed the miracle of feeding the 5,000. The Israeli Fire Brigade has ruled this arson
– following the results of a preliminary investigation that showed the fire broke out in several
places inside the church. An eyewitness describes his memory of the
scene. Early in this morning, I think quarter past
three I heard a big loudly tone and I ran out of my room and I saw the main entrance
for the monastery was burnt, I smelled it is benzine. Since 2009 there have been 43 hate crime attacks
reported against churches, mosques and monasteries in Israel and the occupied West Bank and East
Jerusalem. Staff at the monastery have vowed to repair
the damage – including the graffiti written in Hebrew script that reads “eradicate false
Gods”. “The residents of the monastery believe that we are not obliged to live together. We want
to live together and we will not permit a small group of fanatics to disturb this peaceful
life between the two peoples of this country. We will repair the place, and it will perhaps
look better The limestone Church of the Multiplication
of the Loaves and Fishes, is on the northwest shore of the Sea of Galilee. It was constructed in the 1980s and was built
on the site of the 4th and 5th century churches that commemorates what Christians revere as
one of Jesus’s miracle. No damage was reported to 5th century mosaic
floors that have been restored in the church.
