A recent arson attack did severe damage to a church in Israel on the Sea of Galilee, at the site where tradition says Jesus multiplied the loaves and fishes to feed five thousand hungry people. When it turned out that the perpetrators were zealous Muslims, the press dropped the story. Nothing to see here. Move along, folks. Many thanks to Yuval Brandstetter MD for translating this editorial from News1:

It’s a wonder. As soon as there is real need for information, explanation, essential clarification, the Blabbers of self-flagellation disappear. Take the story of the arson at the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fish in Tiberias. A terrible crime. A veritable hate crime. When it happened the land was rattled. Immediately the Jews began beating their own breasts: We have sinned, we have wronged, for it is from amongst us, that the settlers, the avengers, the persecutors of the Christians, arose. Only this time the show was magically ruined. Lo and behold, the police were finally alacritous, or maybe they had the security tapes the whole time; the perpetrators were identified and arrested. Two Muslim men from [East, majority Arab] Jerusalem who are bona-fide members of a terror organization were the perpetrators of the heinous crime. The arsonists were arrested, confessed proudly to the deed, and re-enacted it. With the indictment imminent, the holy men of the Christian faith sent letters of gratitude to the police, to the GSS, [General Security service, Israel’s FBI] in praise of their excellence and celerity. But where was the Press? Silence reigns. If it had been the “settlers”, heaven forefend the noise and hubbub. The Left would have danced in the streets for shame and condemnation. The commentators would have been scurrying to interview the victims and the government would have been screaming for acceptance of apologies to the victims and the Holy See!! But now — please be silent, not a peep out of you. So where is that god-almighty Jewish propaganda we have all been told rules the media and the Earth? When it comes to Muslim persecution of Christians and Jews, it slinks away and hides.
