Religious Extremists Target The Holy Cross – Jerusalem

One of two cars belonging to members of the Valley of the Cross Monastery that were vandalized overnight. Car tires were slashed and they were littered with graffiti reading “Price Tag”. Jerusalem, Israel. 7th February 2012.

 

In what seems to be an intensifying wave of ultra-religious intolerance sweeping the country two cars belonging to members of the Valley of the Cross Monastery were vandalized overnight. Tires were slashed and cars were littered with graffiti reading “Jesus die”, “Greeks out”, “The Maccabees of Migron” (referring to the right-wing unauthorized Israeli outpost in the northern West Bank), “Price Tag” and the Jewish Star of David.

The Monastery of the Cross is believed to have been built in the 5th century by Queen St. Helena, mother of Constantine the Great. Administered by the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Jerusalem the monastery was traditionally erected on the burial spot of Adam’s head from which grew the tree that gave its wood to the cross on which Christ was crucified.

Bedouins of the unrecognized village of Al-Arakib in the Negev Desert escalate their protest ascending to Jerusalem to protest in front of the Keren Kayemet LeIsrael – Jewish National Fund offices. The KKL-JNF is a quasi-governmental, non-profit organization, founded in 1901 to buy and develop land in Ottoman Palestine and later the British Mandate for Palestine for Jewish settlement. The Bedouins demonstrate against the intention of KKL-JNF to forcefully evict them from, what they call their own land, in favor of forestation. Some 85,000 Bedouins reside in 36 unrecognized villages in the Negev Desert. Residents of Al-Arakib claim their village has already been demolished 35 times.
