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. Freedom of worship in Israel is a cornerstone of Israeli society and is fully protected by the law," Netanyahu said, adding, "We will bring to justice those responsible for this heinous crime. Hatred and intolerance has no place in Israeli society."
