Christian Seminary in Jerusalem Torched in Suspected Hate Crime

A fire broke out in a Greek Orthodox seminary next to Jaffa gate in the old city of Jerusalem is what is believed to be a hate crime. A preliminary investigation found that arsonists poured flammable liquid through a window, lit it, and fled. Graffiti disparaging Jesus was found on the walls. Police say they are investigating if there is a link between today’s incident and the torching of a mosque in Jab’a near the West Bank town of Bethlehem yesterday. In both cases, the phrase “the Redemption of Zion” was scrawled on the walls.
