Judaists vandalize Russian church's metochion in Israel


Moscow,  - Another incident took place on the grounds of the Mary Magdalene Methochion of the Russian spiritual mission on the shore of Lake Kineret (the Sea of Galilee) in Israel.

"Around midday on December 19 vandals trespassed on private property of the methochion and tried to remove an Orthodox cross from the bottom of a radon spring. The CCTV camera captured a moment when three men, one of whom was wearing a kippah, a Jewish hat, came up to the radon spring, entered the water and tried to remove the cross," the mission said in a press release.

Two of them had come here often before, "acted brazenly, ignoring Private Property signs and the nuns' requests," the statement said.

"When marble slabs were put on the bottom of the spring to form a cross, the vandals would first throw the slabs around and then bathed. After that the cross was made more properly, of metal and concrete weighing at least 50 kilograms. It was this cross that the vandals tried to break or remove, but were only able to drag it as far as the stairs," the mission said.

When the nuns emerged, the vandals escaped through the garden. The trespassing on private property and act of vandalism, with video footage enclosed, has been reported to police.

The Russian spiritual mission recalled that in Israel trespassing is punished by two years of imprisonment.
