Authorities in Tennessee  are investigating events after a trailer full of Bibles was intentionally set on fire in front of a church on Easter Sunday.

Fox News reports that around 6 a.m. on Sunday, the Mount Juliet Police Department and Fire Department swiftly responded to a trailer fire located in an intersection that was blocking the entrance of the Global Vision Church.

The church’s pastor, Greg Locke, said in a statement posted on Facebook, that the church’s security cameras were able to capture a man reportedly dropping off the trailer before setting it ablaze.

“There was a lady that had driven through the night to get to our church, and she was in the parking lot and was able to get the police officers here quickly, but it was quite the scene to wake up to on my first morning back from Israel,” Pastor Locke wrote.

The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office said it is not known at this time if the fire was aimed at the church or not, but issued a statement saying they believe the fire was set intentionally. Thankfully no injuries have been reported following the incident, officials said.

Hundreds took to social media to show their support for the church, that was able to proceed without having any Easter services interrupted.

“To uphold the integrity of the ongoing investigation, other specific details cannot be provided at this time. However, we assure the community that further updates will be shared at the appropriate juncture,” the sheriff’s office stated.

Anyone who may have additional information and/or camera footage is urged to contact the Wilson County Sheriff’s Office at 615-444-1459.

Al Jazeera reporter who held Israeli hostages in home was spokesman for Hamas-run labor ministry

Abdallah Aljamal, who wrote for Al Jazeera and worked as a spokesman for Gaza’s Hamas-run labor ministry, was killed when Israel Defense Forces troops entered his central Gaza home over the weekend and rescued hostages Almog Meir Jan, 21, Andri Kozlov, 27, and Shlomi Ziv, 41, according to Israeli officials.

Al Jazeera said Sunday that Aljamal “has never worked with the Network, but had contributed to an Op-ed in 2019,” although his profile on Al Jazeera’s website describes him a “Gaza-based reporter and photojournalist.”

The network also said allegations against Aljamal are “completely unfounded” and are “a continuation of the process of slander and misinformation aimed at harming Al Jazeera’s reputation, professionalism, and independence.”

Just The News reports this is not the first time the network has come under pressure from Israel. The Israeli government unanimously voted last month to close Al Jazeera’s offices in Israel due to security concerns.

Despite the network’s denial of a relationship with Aljamal, it is horrifically hostile towards Israel and Jews. As recent as Tuesday, the network’s English-language article featuring “Live Updates” from the Israel-Gaza war had the headline, “UN chief calls for ceasefire agreement,” with the first sentence stating: “Calling the conditions in Gaza ‘deplorable’, UN chief Antonio Guterres tells Israel and Hamas to come to an agreement on a ceasefire proposal outlined late last month by the US.”

At the same time, the Arabic-language live-updates article used the headline, “New losses for the occupation and the Palestinian factions respond to the ceasefire proposal,” with the first sentence of the article stating, as translated: “On the 249th day of the Israeli aggression on Gaza, the occupation army continued to bomb multiple areas of the Gaza Strip, while the Ministry of Health confirmed that the occupation committed 3 massacres that claimed the lives of 40 martyrs and 120 wounded in the past 24 hours.”

The term “occupation,” is used to refer to the Israel Defense Forces, while the “Israeli aggression” refers to Israel’s war against Hamas in response to the Oct. 7, 2023, terrorist attack that killed about 1,200 people and resulted in the kidnapping of about 250 others, many of whom still remain captive. Additionally, the term “martyrs” refers to any Palestinian – civilian or combatant – killed during fighting against Israel or Jews in general.
