Jerusalem Church Defaced with Hateful Graffiti; Vandals Spray "Death to Christianity," Other Slurs

Unknown assailants spray painted blasphemous graffiti on a church building that's home to several Christian congregations in downtown Jerusalem, the Christian Broadcast Network website reports today (February 25, 2012).

Vandals sprayed messages of hate -- slurs against Jesus including, "We'll Crucify You" and "Death to Christianity" -- in Hebrew on the walls of the Baptist House.

Dr. Al Nucciarone -- senior pastor of the Jerusalem Baptist Church -- said, "Obviously people don't like Christians being here and don't like Jesus."

Police are investigating whether the vandalism is connected to earlier attacks this month on a Jerusalem monastery and mosque.
