Catholic priests said that some Bibles were torn up for toilet paper [by "palestinian" moslems], and many valuable sacramental objects were removed.

Note these moslems are disrespectful of Christianity, even with the world watching. This is the Islam that we all should remember.

So, these are the Islamic fundamentalists hmmmmm, drunken boozers blaspheming God. Can't help but wonder what the Imams have to say about this. Oh wait, I'm sure there is something they can find in the Koran that allows these guys to get away with their total disregard of God's laws. Just like condoning murder and suicide, I guess if you're a "freedom fighter" you get to be a drunken glutton too.

All the media concentrated on the Franciscan [Catholic] quarter, where little damage was done," the archbishop said. "Why? The Franciscans actually let the gunmen in, then guided the gunmen to our rooms." "The Franciscans then blocked their own rooms' doors with iron bars," Archbishop Ironius said.

That's one way to get rid of those pesky terrorist types.

Not surprising. Note how skinny most Muslims are, yet King Fahd of Saudi Arabia is so fat he can't get out of bed by himself.

This is typical of a moderate Muslim ruling class. I use the word "moderate" advisedly. These are not Muslim fanatics after the fashion of the Taliban, they are nationalist fanatics who are Muslims. Not the suicide bomber type at all, though they use them.

I was kinda wondering where all of Clinton's WH staff found new jobs after he left office. Now I know.

The gunmen and civilians who emerged on Friday went through metal detectors, revealing no stolen objects.

I suspect that stuff went out in the bodies of the dead.

I read this article and it comes to mind the story in the Bible where Christ got angry at what was going on in the temple. I am so angry right now it is making me sick to my stomach! Thank God that someone had the guts to tell the truth!

Have to wonder if stuff did disappear. We know from other reports that they got food stuffs in as well as blankets. If they can do that then stuff can sent out also.

That makes me homicidal.

From the pictures I've seen, the whole place looked trashed.

The Pope pretty much blamed in the Israelis...

Armed Palestinians raid a sacred building and the Popes says it is an Israeli siege...

Couldn't possibly be a Palestinian siege…

Makes one want to flip-out!

While inviting the reporters inside, the priests refused to allow three young members of Mr. Abayat's extended family into the room, fearing they would insist it became a Muslim shrine to their fallen colleague

Our religion prohibits idol worship. No shrines to non-believers.

Need to stockpile the churches with more pork (sausage, ham, bacon, hot dogs, pork rinds) and let little pot bellied pigs run loose.

This is Islam. Muslims disrespect and seek to eliminate -- with force -- all other religions.
