Taking Jesus Christ's initiative to cast unwanted people out of temple too literally, a bunch of clergymen have clashed with each other inside the Bethlehem's Church of the Nativity.
"God's people" -- coming from Armenian Orthodox and Greek Orthodox churches -- were screaming out loud and beating one another with broomsticks, fiercely protecting their territory from the competing community's invasion.
The row broke out when the clergymen were cleaning up the church ahead of Orthodox Christmas celebrations. As agreed, each of the two denominations controls a particular section of the church located right on the "border" between their zones of influence.
The brawl, which took place in front of a stunned tourist group, went so far that the Palestinian security forces had to break it up -- thanks to them, no serious injuries occurred.
"No one was detained, as all of the clergymen participating in the raw are known as true people of God," said the Palestinian police spokesman.
