Israelis throwing firecrackers inside church

Yes, we know, attackers from Israel are only mad or ill people. There is never racism, terrorism and so on.
Jewish man, his Christian wife and their 20-year-old daughter enter Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth disguised as pilgrims and proceed to throw firecrackers;13 police officers, 13 civilians hurt in incident and ensuing violence.

The incident during a service late on Friday caused panic among worshippers and sparked angry protests outside.

The three intruders were taken away for psychiatric checks as police sought to disperse large crowds.

Internal Security Minister Gideon Ezra told Israel radio it "was not a (terrorist) attack and there was no specific intention to harm the Church of the Annunciation".

Arab MK Azmi Bishara (National Democratic Assembly) called the attack on the Church of the Annunciation in Nazareth a “vile act.”

“This was a religious or nationalist attack, which in this country both are one and the same,” Bishara said.

“Such creatures (couple) grow here due to the racist atmosphere and culture in Israeli society. We ask that police act with restraint during the demonstrations by the city’s residents.”

The Church of the Annunciation marks the place where Christians believe the Angel Gabriel appeared to Mary to foretell the birth of Jesus.
