Church of Loaves and Fishes to be compensated for June arson attack

Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein on Monday overturned the Tax Authority’s decision to deny the Galilee-based Church of the Loaves and Fishes compensation for severe damage caused in a June arson attack.

Two Jewish extremists were indicted in July for the crime.

As well as destroying part of the holy site’s roof and gutting large parts of the building, the arsonists sprayed graffiti on one of the walls of the church which read, “Idol worship will be destroyed,” a reference to the opinion of some that Christianity is akin to idolatry.
