Catholic Bishop blame Israel for Arab violence


The Latin Patriarchate of Jerusalem, which represents the Catholic Church in the region, accused Israel on Thursday of responsibility for the recent wave of Palestinian violence, saying Israeli policy has created despair and frustration among Palestinians leading them to carry out acts of terrorism.

Dep. Defense Minister Ben-Dahan: Latin Patriarchate shouldn’t repeat Palestinian propaganda; Father Gabriel Nadaf: Latin Patriarch’s comments encourage terrorism, harm Jewish-Christian relations.

The Latin Patriarchate spelled out its position in a statement of the “Commission for Justice and Peace” of its Assembly of Catholic Ordinaries, a panel of the leading Catholic clerics in Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Jordan and Cyprus.

It failed however to make any mention of incitement to violence within Palestinian society, on social media, or from PA officials , although the document did say that “Israelis who need security and tranquility.”

Thursday’s statement asserted that the current situation for Palestinians was “inhuman,” and said that settlements; the “siege of Gaza”; the “siege of the rest of Palestine”; military checkpoints; house demolitions; “and the arbitrary behavior of Israeli soldiers humiliating the Palestinians,” have led to the last five months of Palestinian terror attacks against Israeli civilians and security personnel.

The declaration from the Latin Patriarchate also said that the “Judaization” of Jerusalem was also a factor in spurring Palestinian violence.
