In a meeting with Shin Bet chief Yoram Cohen Thursday, Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu condemned the early morning arson attack on The Church of Loaves and Fishes located in the Galilee, vowing to capture and punish the perpetrators while iterating that intolerance has no place in Israeli society.

"The shocking arson attack on the church is an attack on all of us.

Hatred and intolerance has no place in Israeli society."
