The news article sounds like bull sh11 and mostly ainti Jewish, this is real news to people who are really screwed up in the head.
The JPost is not anti-Semitic as far as I know. And funny how pro-Christian viewpoint is now considered anti-Semitic by some.
And hardly since the collective Greek, Armenian, and Catholic offices overseeing the Christian properties said:-->
In a news conference Sunday, the church leaders said they had received “collection notices and orders of seizure of church assets, properties and bank accounts for alleged debts of punitive municipal taxes.”
Later, in a joint statement, the churches said Israel was waging a “systematic campaign against the churches and the Christian community in the Holy Land, in flagrant violation of the existing status quo.”
AND THE DISPUTE GOES BACK 70 YEARS:
Barkat said the churches owed the city more than $185 million on certain properties used for commercial purposes. He said houses of worship would not be taxed but properties used as hotels and offices by the church should no longer be exempt. Barkat has been locked in a dispute with the government over increasing the annual budget for the city, where a high number of residents and international institutions are exempt from taxes for various reasons.
This month, an announcement from the municipality said it would start collecting back taxes worth more than $188 million from 887 properties in Jerusalem belonging to churches and U.N. agencies.
The dispute between the churches and the Israeli authorities also involves proposed legislation aimed at repossessing large tracts of land leased by the Greek Orthodox Church to the Israeli government nearly 70 years ago. The land in question, which now houses hundreds of apartment buildings and national institutions, was sold several years ago by the church to Israel.
Thankfully, the offices of Bibi intervened to stave off the crisis (for the time being).
