Was supposed to have commented on this earlier. It didn't look funny to me, just an ugly, shameful mess and total confusion. But, there's nothing new under the sun. The clergy and monks in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem and the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem have been bad boys for centuries., So much so that for the past few centuries the Muslims have had to hold the keys of the former church! :roll:


But to make it relevant to why there are wars Obbs; smacks of desperation. Those guys couldn't win a fart in a gasworks!

The ironic thing is that these squabbles seem to have happened every year for the past four or five years- perhaps its a "World Series" of some kind- and next year there will be a rematch?
