The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem lamented the appearance of anti-Christian graffiti on the walls of a Catholic institution.
“This is not the first time that graffiti ‘calling for the expulsion of
Christians’ were discovered on the wall of an institution belonging to
the Catholic Church, not to speak of other Christian institutions,”
according to a report on the patriarchate’s website.
“The shock over the incident has prompted the Christian community in
Jerusalem to protest strongly, not for the first time, denouncing these
acts that reveal a deeper problem that concerns Israeli society in
general and Jerusalem in particular; and which seriously calls into
question religious tolerance within the society that encompasses the
State of Israel, which cannot manage to prevent this type of religious
intolerance,” the report continued.
