This website has been built in response to the sad reality of recurrent acts of violence against clergy and pilgrims, as well as religious edifices and symbols in Jerusalem and the Holy Land. Such transgressions, and especially spitting, are assault offenses and violate the sanctity of the city and the entire Holy Land.
In the absence of documentation, institutions and the public at large find it easy to ignore or marginalize the phenomenon. This website aims to document all such incidents, bring them to the attention of the relevant institutions, and demand they use the means and measures at their disposal to redress them.
We have the blessing of the heads of the churches in Jerusalem, and we now seek your assistance in reporting if, unfortunately, you have been a victim of an assault or witnessed one.
