Church Arson: Why Are Police Ruling Out Muslim Extremists?

Investigative journalist David Bedein says Arabs in Tiberias have been attacking Christians for months.

Veteran investigative reporter David Bedein, Director of the Center for Near East Policy Research, finds it exceedingly odd that police have been quick to blame Jews for the arson at a church in Tiberias – instead of investigating a possible Arab connection.

“When we hear the story of a Catholic institution being attacked in Tiberias and the police immediately arresting some yeshiva boys, instead of opening an investigation against Muslims, at a time when everyone knows that Arabs in Tiberias have been attacking Christians for months, and all of a sudden they ignore it and let the media only think that it’s Jews – there is something wrong with this story,” Bedein told Arutz Sheva Thursday.

“There is no excuse to only blame the Jews and not even raise questions about possible involvement by Muslims,” he added.

Bedein went on to relate that several years ago, the Apostolic Nuncio to Israel, Archbishop Pietro Sambi, asked Bedein and his staff to investigate and publish information about Arab hostilities against Christians, and especially against Christian holy sites in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, Tiberias, Haifa, Nazareth, Yafo.
