Breaking News: Extremists set fire to church in northern Israel

The building of a highly respected Roman Catholic Church in northern Israel has been set on fire and offensive slogans have been scribbled on one of its walls by suspected extremists.
According to reports on Thursday, extremists torched the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish on the northwestern shore of the Sea of Galilee, writing Hebrew graffiti that were sprayed in red on one of its walls and denounced what they termed as “the worship of idols.”
Two people were also taken to hospital after inhaling thick smoke that had filled the area.
Micky Rosenfeld, an Israeli police spokesman, said the blaze has been put out; “however, both the interior and exterior of the church suffered extensive damage.”
He added that an investigation has been launched into the incident.
The Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish is greatly cherished by Christians, and serves as a traditional site of pilgrimage in Israel.

Earlier this year, a seminary building belonging to the Greek Orthodox Church was torched in East al-Quds (Jerusalem) in a hate crime attack by Israeli extremists.
The extremists torched an annex of the church building on February 26, writing graffiti that insulted Jesus Christ. No one was injured or killed in the sacrilegious incident.
The act of vandalism came a day after a mosque was set ablaze in the village of al-Jaba near Bethlehem in the occupied West Bank. The attackers sprayed anti-Muslim slogans on a nearby wall.
Israeli extremists have recently intensified attacks on Christian and Muslim holy sites in the occupied Palestinian territories. They have also desecrated al-Aqsa Mosque on numerous occasions with the support of the Israeli security forces.
Israel has tried to change the demographic makeup of al-Quds over the past decades by constructing illegal settlements, destroying historical sites and expelling the local Palestinian population.

And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Tory MP's Private Company in Charge of Election votes and counts

Tory MP Peter Lilley’s company IDOX was given contracts across Scotland by SNP and Labour councils to quietly privatise the entire electoral process and control of postal votes and election counts across Scotland.


The contracts were awarded to ensure private control of all Scottish elections for the three-year period covering the EU election, the general election, the EU referendum and the Scottish Elections which allow IDOX to control, open, count and put forward "postal" ballot papers to be put into ballot boxes right up to the 10 pm deadline.

By May 2013 IDOX boasted they already had control of elections and voter registration and votes for 13 million people across the UK in the privatisation of all elections that most voters in the UK are completely unaware of.

Does this mean it is possible for postal votes to be binned (if private operators don't agree with the vote provided) and replaced using signatures they store electronically and can ballot papers be made up in pe…

Jill Dando tried to expose BBC paedophile ring but 'nobody wanted to know (including exclusive first look at the new documentary)

MURDERED BBC TV presenter Jill Dando raised the issue of a possible paedophile ring in the corporation - but no action was taken.



A former colleague and friend told us that Miss Dando, from Weston-super-Mare, tried to get bosses to investigate what was going on. The source said that the Crimewatch presenter was told that 'big name stars' and BBC staff were involved in abuse. A file was eventually handed to senior management in the mid-1990s, but no action was taken on the matter.
The source, who remains anonymous, said: “She compiled a file of complaints but she was not really an investigative journalist, just a presenter. “She passed the information to someone else and they gave it back. No one wanted to know.” Miss Dando was shot outside her London home in 1999 at the age of 37.
