Israeli police fire tear gas at Palestinian Christians protesting Israeli Exhibit Mocking Jesus Christ

Hundreds of Palestinian Christians and their supporters gathered Friday in Haifa, in northern Israel, to protest an Israeli exhibit that featured Ronald McDonald taking the place of Jesus on the cross. The so-called “McJesus” exhibit was created by Finnish artist Jani Leinon, and has been on display at a gallery in Haifa as part of a gallery exhibition called ‘Sacred Goods’.
 
It recently came to the attention of church authorities in Haifa, who called for the protest. The Greek Patriarchate said “While we express freedom of expression, this should not include mocking and targeting our religion and religious figures”.
