BEERSHEBA (Ma'an) -- A church in the southern Israeli city of Beersheba was defaced with anti-Christian graffiti attacking Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary on Friday in the latest in a string of attacks by suspected Jewish extremists targeting Palestinian Christian sites.

According to the Jerusalem Post, the graffiti on the church in the old city of Beersheba read: "Jesus = Son of a whore."

Spokesman for the Israeli police Luba Samari confirmed the incident, and said police have opened an investigation into it.

The attack comes only two days before the Pope is due to visit Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, amid a wave of attacks against Christian holy sites and property that have occurred inside Israel in the last few months.

On Wednesday, Israeli police said they were putting a number of known Jewish extremists under house arrest for the entirety of the Pope's visit in order to prevent disruptions.

Israel is becoming divided than the Palestinians. Maybe the Palestinian unity is the cause of it. You don't have to read between the lines to see that Israel is in the verge of being destroy from within and will probably show more violence in the days ahead to maintain their control while the extremists is attacking Churches, and Mosques to show their ignorance as being related to ancient Hebrew. Science already has conclusively proven that the majority of Jews from Russia, and Europe have no

Cont.... Science has proven that the majority of Jews from Russia, and Europe have no connection whatsoever to ancient Hebrews, therefore they have no connection with the Holy Land. Saying that, what the Jewish extremists are crying wolf about, and targeting Palestinian Christian site and Muslim Mosques, and Netanyahu calling Jerusalem Israel eternal capital.
