Holy Fisticuffs.

"While the Israeli-Palestinian conflict naturally garners most of the world's attention here, it's sometimes easy to forget that Jerusalem is considered hallowed ground (and therefore worth fighting over) by a host of overlapping Christian orders -- all constantly struggling for turf rights.

On Sunday morning, Israeli police rushed into the Church of the Holy Sepulcher, one of the holiest sites in Christianity, to break up a violent confrontation between Greek and Armenian Orthodox monks just a few feet from the site where Jesus is believed to have been crucified."
