Christians in Israel face rise in hate crimes

Escalation of threats and vandalism trigger claims that authorities turn blind eye to religious extremism.

    Christians in Israel face an escalation of attacks by religious extremists.

    Churches have been vandalised and the top official of the Catholic Church in the town where Jesus is believed to have lived has been threatened.

    Some Church officials blame Israeli schools and politicians for supporting discrimination against the religious minority group.
