fsspx.news/…/why-christian-c… – The Church of the Holy Sepulcher, built on the site of Christ’s tomb, was closed on February 25th, 2018. This decision was in response to a new city-tax levied on the Holy Site. These sacred sites were long exempt from municipal taxes but recently the mayor of Jerusalem attempted to collect over $180 million dollars in what was referred to as “back taxes”. The site was only closed for a few days and was open again in time for Easter as the mayor reacted by backtracking his tax plan - although he is still attempting to push some new form of taxation in the future.
