Tourist Shot by Police at Church of the Holy Sepulcher

"The Israeli occupation government police shot and wounded on Saturday a tourist who reportedly attempted to stab a police officer in the Church Of Holy Sepulcher. "

I was surprised to see this article in the headlines today. Last month I spent two weeks in Israel doing business for my primary employer. It is a shocking feeling knowing that this happened only a few weeks after I stepped foot into this same church. The Church of the Holy Sepulcher is the Church that was built on top of multiple historic sites from the time of Jesus. Some of these include the location of Golgotha (Where Jesus Cross was placed into the ground) and his tomb.
