Hamas Slams al-Quds Church Attack

Oct 31 2010 / 5:20 pm

Palestinian resistance movement Hamas has denounced a recent attack by Israeli settlers against a church in western al-Quds (Jerusalem).

The group said in a statement on Saturday that the crime was reminiscent of the Israeli regime’s "racist policy" that is hostile to heavenly religions and of the Judaization scheme of al-Quds.

The condemnation came after a group of Israeli settlers on Friday night threw firebombs into the two-storey church, completely burning its first floor.

Hamas also called on the Palestinian people to stand up to such racist practices.

The movement went on to call on international organizations to act on their responsibilities and pressure Israel to halt its crimes against the Palestinians and their Islamic and Christian holy shrines that violated all international laws, norms, and ethics.
