Anti-Christian hostility has erupted in the form of physical attacks, provocative speech, and seditious billboards, the Morning Star News reported on Thursday.

Nashat Filmon, general director of the Palestinian branch of The Bible Society, said the recent hostilities in Jerusalem, including an incident last month wherein an Islamic mob attacked the Christian quarter, are linked to ISIS.
