在耶路撒冷的教堂

A hundred year old church was burned Friday by right-wing Israeli settlers, who broke a number of windows of the church and hurled Molotov cocktails inside.
一座百年老教堂週五被右翼以色列定居者燒毀,他們打破數張教堂窗戶和投擲自製燃燒彈入內。
The damage to the church was substantial, with burn damage throughout the first floor of the building.
教堂的損傷是巨大的,燒毀損壞在整座大樓一樓。
The church was built in Jerusalem in 1897, and housed the Palestinian Bible College until 1947, when parishioners were pushed out by Jewish armed gangs during the violence accompanying the creation of the state of Israel.
教堂在耶路撒冷建於 1897年,和安置巴勒斯坦聖經學院直到1947年,當創建以色列國期間,教友被猶太武裝團伙以暴力趕出。
Christians make up 2% of the population of both Israel and the Palestinian Territories ?the number used to be around 15%, but many Christians from the Holy Land have emigrated due to the harsh conditions of the Israeli occupation, and discrimination against them by the Israeli state.
基督徒佔以色列和巴勒斯坦領土人口的2%,數字一向是15%左右,但許多來自聖地的基督徒已移居,由於以色列佔領的苛刻條件,和以色列國針對他們的歧視。
This is not the first time that Israeli right-wingers have destroyed churches and church property ?a number of Chrisitan churches were destroyed during the second initfada (uprising) that began in 2000, and many more were destroyed by Israeli forces during the 1948 and 67 wars.
這不是第一次,以色列右翼摧毀教堂和教會財產。數間基督教堂被摧毀,在第二次暴動(起義)那開始於 2000年,和有更多的被以色列軍隊摧毀於1948年和67年的戰爭。
In 2006, an Israeli couple tried to firebomb an ancient church in Nazareth, the city where Chrisitans believe that Jesus Christ lived 2000 years ago. An Israeli court which tried the case failed to convict the couple of any charges.

A leader in the church attacked on Friday, Zachariah al-Mashriqi, told reporters that the attack on the church was a clear attempt to provoke Palestinians to respond in anger. He urged Palestinian Christians to respond to the attack with virtue and patience.

Al-Mashriqi urged the Israeli government to act responsibly and condemn the attack, and work on investigating the attack to find out who was involved and actually file charges in the case. He asked the Israeli government to protect holy sites in the city of Jerusalem, as these sites come under increasing attack by Israeli settlers.
