Islamic Tolerance Alert from Ekklesia, with thanks to Cornelius:
A Roman Catholic parish school and a Protestant Bible-study centre in the West Bank have been fire-bombed twice since the Islamist Hamas movement won a legislative election in January 2006, according to Christian clerics in the region.
According to the Presbyterian Church USA News Service, a priest at the Roman Catholic Al-Ahliyya College in the West Bank city of Ramallah says that several fire-bombs were thrown into a school sports room in early March 2006, causing serious damage and destroying equipment stored there.
About a month earlier, said the same priest, several petrol bombs were thrown into an Al-Ahliyya classroom.
In other recent incidents, a Protestant Bible-study centre in the town of Bir-Zeit near Ramallah was attacked, and phrases from the Qur’an were daubed on its doors. Windows in a Lutheran church in Ramallah were also shattered by unknown assailants.
