Blessed Nativity from the Church of the Multiplication burned by Orthodox 'Jews' and prevented from rebuilding by the Israeli government

A Nativity icon from the Church of the Multiplication on the shore of the Sea of Galilee. This historic church, parts of which date to the 5th century A.D., was burned by pious Orthodox 'Jews' June 18, 2015 HERE and HERE. Adding injury to injury, the Israeli government is strategizing to withhold funding to rebuild the church.

My corrections to National Geographic's weasel-worded damage-control piece are interspersed below:

[Judaic] Attacks Rattle Christians in Holy Land

Andrew Lawler - National Geographic

Dec. 24, 2015

Nazareth, Israel—Father Matthias Karl hoped to begin rebuilding his shattered church complex on the shores of the Sea of Galilee after Christmas. But following an arson attack six months ago that left one Catholic monk hospitalized and caused nearly $1.8 million in damage, the Israeli government, while strongly condemning the incident, has yet to provide promised financial compensation or put the two right-wing Jewish suspects on trial.

The June assault was the latest and most dramatic sign of tension between Christians in Israel and a growing movement of [Orthodox 'Jews'] who seek to cleanse their nation of [Christian 'idolators'].

“The attacks have become more brutal and more aggressive,” said Father Nikodemus Schnabel, a Benedictine monk at the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion in Jerusalem that has been subject to several attacks. “And we have not been happy with the political response.”

Taking a page from the [Talmud, which also informs the Zionist-backed] Islamic group ISIS operating in neighboring Syria, a small group of young [Orthodox] Jews influenced by [rabbis of Orthodox Judaism] target Christian sites as centers of heretical idol worship and unwelcome missionary activity. In the past three years, [many more than] a dozen churches and monasteries have been bombed, burned, or vandalized. [To this day], no one was charged in any of these incidents...

[Disingenuous claims that attacks on Christian churches by 'Jews' is a new phenomenon are contemptible misdirection. Notable among many others is the 2002 attack on the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem by the IDF HERE, and Saint-Dimitrios church in Nablus HERE, and the February 27, 1994 Israeli Mossad bombing of Our Lady of Deliverance Maronite Catholic Chuirch at Jounieh, Lebanon, during mass which murdered 11 HERE].

Yinon Reuveni (right) and Yehuda Asraf, suspected of vandalizing the church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes in Tabgha, on the shore of the Galilee

On the night of June 17, according to court documents, 20-year-old Yinon Reuveni and 19-year-old Yehuda Assraf left Jerusalem in a Subaru they had just bought in the West Bank, where they live in [an illegal] settlement.

The two men stopped to buy gasoline at a filling station outside Tel Aviv, and arrived at the Church of the Multiplication along the Sea of Galilee that night.

The white stone church, built on top of a 5th-century sanctuary, commemorates the place where tradition says Jesus multiplied loaves and fishes to feed a large crowd. It features 6th–century mosaics that are among the earliest Christian mosaics in Israel. Six monks and six nuns manage the complex that includes guest accommodations and is overseen by Dormition Abbey in Jerusalem.

Israeli officials say that the two men waited until three in the morning to pour and light gasoline at the entrance to the monastery and in the reception area for pilgrims. They also spray painted in red [Hebrew graffiti, reading, “the false gods will be eliminated” — a quote from the Aleinu prayer which is mandatory for Orthodox 'Jews' to pray 3 times daily]...

An elderly monk, awakened by the noise of fire, began battling the blaze ... Father Matthias recalled that a 79-year-old monk crawled out a second-story window and used a hose to spray the church roof, preventing the fire’s spread to the sanctuary before firefighters arrived. The monk was subsequently hospitalized for two days, along with a volunteer, for smoke inhalation.

[Due to better than usual international reporting on Israeli savagery in this instance] “There was too much pressure for the Israeli government to dismiss this,” said Father Nikodemus.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu [feigning indignation for the international press] quickly designated the fire as a terrorist attack, making the church ineligible to draw on insurance but paving the way for government compensation. Two months later, the Israeli Tax Authority declared that the violent event did not qualify as terrorism, and therefore could not receive government funding.

When [Orthodox Judaic] Israeli President Reuven Rivlin visited the church in early September, just before meeting Pope Francis in Rome, he [likewise feigned concern and] promised to help reverse that decision. “He was shocked by the extent of damage,” said Father Matthias. “Since then there have been a lot of meetings with the government, but no compensation” [which is the to-be-expected yield for Judeo-Christian 'dialogue'].

In the meantime, a group of [image conscious] Israeli rabbis started a crowd-funding campaign that raised [a token] $13,000 [a small fraction of the funding donated by the same community to the Orthodox Judaic terrorists who burned the church]. [Crypto-Haredi, Orthodox] Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein, director of the [Judeo-supremacist] Jerusalem-based Elijah Interfaith Institute [which seeks to subordinate Christianity and Islam to Judaism as 'Noahide' step-children HERE], led the effort that included the [also image-conscious] head of the Knesset, Israel’s parliament.

... the small group of violent [Orthodox 'Jews'], made up mostly of young West Bank settlers, has been emboldened by the lack of prosecutions [for their violent crimes and their theft of Palestinian land]...

Assaf Sharon, a philosophy professor at Tel Aviv University who has written about the history of Jewish terrorism, said the youth “are surrounded by institutions that condone, protect, and support them. And there is certainly authority behind them, including rabbis they look up to” [most notably, the codifier of Orthodox Judaism, Moses Maimonides HERE].

A 2009 book written by two [Orthodox] Israeli rabbis [Yitzhak Shapira and Yosef Elitzur] called The King’s Torah [rules] that Jewish law legitimizes violence against Gentiles [including babies]. Tag Meir director Gvaryahu was part of a legal effort to ban the volume [for P.R. purposes], but the Israeli Supreme Court earlier this month rejected that plea as an infringement on free speech [this ruling comes from the same Israeli government which criminalizes Christian preaching to 'Jews'].

... on December 17, [Orthodox Rabbi] Bentiz [sic] Gopstein, who leads the Lehava organization, published a column denouncing Christians as “blood-sucking vampires,” and added that “Christmas has no place in the Holy Land” [among many other things HERE].

I cannot help but think that this Asraf guy looks like he's straight out off an ISIS video...coincidence?

Maybe you could also address the use of "Beit al Maqdis" (same as the Hebrew "Beit Ha Mikdash" = the Temple) as a name for Jerusalem in the recent ISIS video directed at the Jews when it seems that the most common name for Jerusalem in Arabic nowadays is "al Quds".

I wish you a Holy Christmas and a blessed New Year. Sincere thanks for the work you put into keeping us informed.

Where can traditional catholics donate to help rebuild the church?

“The most significant group operating in northern Sinai today is Ansar Beit al-Maqdis (Supporters of Jerusalem); this organization has been active since 2011. It originated in Gaza, and made its way to Sinai following the ouster of Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak in 2011.

The group’s name will raise a wry smile for Israeli and Jewish readers. The Arabic term Bayt al-Maqdis (House of the Holy) for Jerusalem derives from the older Hebrew name for the Jewish Temple – Beit Hamikdash, with the same meaning.

Contemporary Islamists and jihadis, of course, would fiercely deny that any Jewish Temple ever stood in Jerusalem.

But this absence of logical consistency appears to have little impact on the organization’s energy for violent activity.”

And completely ignorant and/or judaized Christians (sic) continue to run to the 'holy land' on pilgrimages, wasting their hard earned money to go there and be openly laughed at, if not worse. I wouldn't go there even if I were paid to do so.

Thank you, hereisjorge, I have noticed that, too.

I just found an older video of the marriage of one of Bentzi Gopstein's daughters in 2013 (not the (not the recent one where they seem to celebrate the death of 18-month-old Ali Dawabshe). It is well worth watching and they perform an interesting "knife dance" at 3:00...see for yourselves:

Morris talks about the Jews elsewhere in his series and not particularly in this one. They are responsible for the ever ongoing mayhem around the world.

95% of these Jews are of Khazzar Edomite descent and NO kin to Jacob Israel nor are the of Semetic origin. More kin to the Mongals, Turks, Huns.
Christians need to wake up and quit bowing to the Synagogue of Satan !

It's biblical and all we can do is pray for the conversion of all non-Catholics.I agree with you but the world is under mass hypnosis.There is nothing we can say to wake up the brainwashed masses.
