The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem may be forced to close down as a result of an Israeli plot against the church. BBC News - Church of the Holy Sepulchre in row over water bill The first thought seems to be a simple dispute over an unpaid bill. until you look closer. First, it was taken as read, there was an agreement to provide free service to this and other holy sites. No bills have been paid for years and there was no action against the church. If payment was expected, a water company would normally have something to say in the first month or two, not after 15 years of unpaid bills. The water company managed to send a bill in 2004 but never attempted to enforce it. One has to ask why. They did come up with a lame excuse but, given the lack of bills, hardly believable. We then go on to find out there was an agreement reached but the water company ignored their word of honour and secured a court order to close the church's bank account. Last, I suppose we have to know a little about the cater company. They use their name but in fact, it's the municipality of Jerusalem's fully owned company. A dispute over water is one thing but this is obviously a Israeli plot to close a major Christian holy site. Is Israel really a friend to Christian America?
