One of the holiest sites in Christianity has been shut down indefinitely in protest at new Israeli laws likened by religious leaders to Nazi persecution.
Tourists and worshippers were locked out of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem “until further notice” from Sunday, over proposals to tax property and seize land sold to private buyers.
The Greek Orthodox patriarch joined forces with the Armenian patriarch and the Catholic custodian of the Holy Land to issue a statement attacking what they called “a systematic attack” and “an attempt to weaken the Christian presence in occupied Jerusalem.”

TRUTH BOMBS: Not only is this evidence for the historical acuracy of the Bible, but of the accurracy of prophecy in the Bible. Some unbelievers error in their belief that Isaiah was written after the Babylonian captivity. This demonstrates that Isaiah was a real person and that the transmission of his book is more probable than improbable. Now consider the fact that Isaiah predicted the fall of Babylon by a man that names Cyrus. That exact name hundredsof years before Cyrus was born (Isaiah 45:1-7 ).
