The neo-conservative/Christian evangelical political alliance in the United States is fond of using the term “Judeo-Christian” to describe the political philosophic underpinnings of the United States.
However, as churches in Israel, Palestine, Russia, and Europe, as well as mosques throughout the world come under attack by arsonists, graffiti artists, and vandals, it is important to point out that it is the Christo-Islamic tenets that are under attack by Israel and those who serve Israel’s interests.
Israeli right-wing Orthodox Jewish settlers have exacted what is called “price tag” vengeance against Christians and Muslims in the Holy Land by attacking churches and mosques. The radical Jews claim that Christian and Muslim places of worship will continue to be vandalized as a “price tag” for attempts to bring about a fully-recognized Palestinian state in the West Bank and Gaza. The settlers and many members of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu’s government are in lock-step with the settlers who want to see the West Bank fully incorporated into Israel as “Judea and Samaria,” with the Arab population of Muslims and Christians expelled.
The latest vandalism by Jews against a church involved the stoning attack of the St. George Romanian Orthodox Church in Jerusalem. The attack on the church came as Romanian Foreign Minister Titus Corlatean was visiting Israel. Netanyahu raised suspicions about his involvement with the church attacks by refusing to meet with the Romanian foreign minister and personally apologize for the Jewish attack on the Romanian church.
