Ah yes,

Christian fellowship in action in the holy land. Ynet News:
A clash broke out Sunday between Greek-Orthodox and Armenian worshippers at the Church of Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, during the closing of the Christian Palm Sunday. Police officers present at the scene separated between them. None of the 20 people present were injured.

And the root cause of this Christian conflict at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem?
During the ceremony a flame is lit by a sun beam penetrating the narrow aperture in the church’s ceiling. In recent years, the service has become a Bone of contention between the Christian denominations, as each one tries to be the first one to have its leader carry the flame outside the church.

Ah yes, a religion of peace in action.
