    Church leaders in Occupied East Jerusalem have closed the holiest site in Christianity, in response to what they call discrimination by the Israeli government. Leaders of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre - believed to be the crucifixion and resurrection site of Jesus Christ - are angry at proposed tax plans for church-owned properties.
