Jesus ‘Loaves’ church reopens 20 months after arson attack by Judaic Terrorists


President Reuven Rivlin attends interfaith meeting at holy site; Israel contributed $400,000 toward repairs

ed note–but, but, but…I thought Christians and Jews were BFFs…I thought there was this thing known as ‘Judeo-Christianity’, that fraternal bond between Jesus Christ and those He referred to as ‘Children of their father, the Devil…’ and–as the entire world was just recently reminded by no less an authoritative religious figure than the Pontifex Maximus, Pope Francis himself–Jews are the ‘elder brethren’ of Christians and it is a ‘sin’ for the followers of Jesus to entertain any negative feelings towards those whom Jesus described VERY PUBLICLY and VERY LOUDLY as ‘Children of their father, the Devil…’

You mean, it wasn’t one of DEM MOOZLUMS who set fire to this ancient, sacred church that was dedicated to the man loved and revered by just as any Muslims as Christians?


All sarcasm aside folks, just another example as to ‘how they do it’. The Israeli president attends the interfaith gathering as if he actually gave a hootin’ hell about Christians and about the man whom they (as well as the world’s 1+ billion Muslims) revere. What he DOES give a hootin’ hell about however is the money and political support from the Christian West that would evaporate in a microsecond if it became known how Jews really feel about Jesus, son of Mary–also deeply revered by the world’s 1=billion Muslims–and the manner in which both of them are scurrilously described in Judaism and within the ‘sacred texts’ of its ‘holy’ book, the Talmud.

Times of Israel

The church in northern Israel where Christians believe Jesus performed the miracle of the loaves and fishes reopened on Sunday, 20 months after an arson attack by Jewish extremists.

Two rooms of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes in Tabgha on the Sea of Galilee were vandalized and badly damaged in a June 2015 fire.

The complex reopened to pilgrims following eight months of renovation work at a cost of around one million dollars, of which the state of Israel contributed almost $400,000.

President Reuven Rivlin and his wife attended the interfaith meeting to mark the reopening along with Christian dignitaries, including Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Ambassador of Germany Dr. Clemens von Goetze, Sheikh Muafak Tarīf, and Rabbi Alon Goshen-Gottstein, as well as Jordan Valley Local Council leader Idan Greenbaum and donors in the Roman Catholic church.

“We stand up for religious freedom because, as a people, we know very well what it means to suffer religious persecution,” said Rivlin. “And we stand up for religious freedom because we are a democratic state – who believe in the rights for everyone to worship God according to their belief.”

The president thanked all those who worked to restore the church.

“The last time I was here, we stood together and looked at the burnt walls and the terrible graffiti,” he said. “Today, I visit here again, and see the renewal of this historic, special, and holy place. I want to thank all the people who worked hard to restore this place, and to say clearly; that hate cannot win.”

Three Jewish extremists were indicted for the attack on the church, in what was termed a hate crime against Israel’s minority community.

The three have yet to be sentenced.
