    Jewish Extremists’ Attacks Rattle Christians in Holy Land

    http://news.nationalgeographic.com/2...ultiplication/

    Taking a page from the Islamic group ISIS operating in neighboring Syria, a small group of young fundamentalist Jews influenced by radical religious leaders target Christian sites as centers of heretical idol worship and unwelcome missionary activity. In the past three years, a dozen churches and monasteries have been bombed, burned, or vandalized. Until the June firebombing, no one was charged in any of these incidents.
    Attacks on mosques by extremist Jews and assaults on synagogues by radical Arabs is a longstanding problem in the region. Targeting Christian sites, however, is a new phenomenon, say Israelis who monitor hate crimes.
    Pray for peace for all the Jews, Muslims, and Christians in Israel and Palestine.

    Not to minimize the issue, because obviously this is a very serious matter. But it's nothing like ISIS. ISIS is the government and ISIS is murdering Christians. When Israelis carry out attacks like this, the Israeli government arrests them.

    Attacks on mosques by extremist Jews and assaults on synagogues by radical Arabs is a longstanding problem in the region.
    Right, "radical" Arabs "assault synagogues". Author must have missed the Arab countries repeated attempts to destroy the state of Israel, the middle east being ethnically cleansed of Jews in Arab countries, the Palestinians firing tens of thousands of missiles into Israel, Palestinians self detonating in large crowds of Israelis, etc etc. Yes, the only thing Jews have to worry about is "radical" Arabs "assault synagogues". Whatever.

    The article didn't say it was the only thing.

    Still a weird thing to say. Like taking the actions of 2 crazies and comparing them to ISIS. The poor Christians still in Syria or Iraq wish all they had to worry about is 2 crazies.

    First I'd heard of such a thing. What I find surprising is that any Jews would go after any Christians. Seems so odd to me. I mean, when you have enemies like muslims all around you and continuously trying to kill you and wanting you gone from the face of the earth.

    Do the Christians in that area of the world have a problem with Jews or with Israel generally?

    Palestinian Christians are a group people forget exists.

    I hope for the peace of Israel, because they have a right to exist as much as anyone, but the innocent in Palestine do suffer. Our Christian siblings there are forgotten by the general media and the hard-line "always support Israel" pastors here in America. I don't believe Israel is justified in all the things they do, because it can cause suffering to innocent people in Palestine.

    Yup. Well, they're crazies. I guess it's too much to expect rational behavior.

    I don't want to see the innocent Palestinians suffer either. Unfortunately, that is what happens in a war. It is unavoidable.

    Sometimes it is unavoidable. That's true. Romans 12:18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone.

    Perhaps they are simply so angry they lash out and anyone and everyone that is not like them. I think we see that from many blacks in this nation. I'm saying that there are some who over time become so angry and see no solution, that anyone not like them becomes the enemy - even if they are not an enemy. I'm only guessing here in my attempt to understand it.

    Perhaps. If so, it is not appropriate behavior for a religious person.

    You be surprised the unholy things that "religous people" will do, especially those with the mindset, that their enemy's enemy is their friend. There is a strategy behind this.

    No, I really wouldn't.

    No it really isn't.
