Two Christian Churches in West bank Firebombed by Islamic Terrorists

16 September 2006: Two Christian churches in the West Bank city of Nablus were hit by firebombs early Saturday by Islamic terrorists in response to recent comments made by Pope Benedict XVI about Islam. In a phone call to The Associated Press, a group calling itself the “Lions of Monotheism” claimed responsibility.

The firebombs left black scorch marks on the walls and windows of a Roman Catholic and an Anglican church. Father Yousef, a priest at the Anglican Church, said several firebombs hit the church’s outside wall. No injuries were reported
