News from Jerusalem yesterday showed Armenian and Greek Orthodox monks exchanging kicks and punches, with many of them featuring bruises and bloodied faces.
Of course it is odd that these are religious figures fighting inside a holy site, but if one examines the news deeper, he will see that this is a frequent occurance.
Earlier in 2008, Armenian and Greek Orthodox fought like they did yesterday.
In September 2004, Roman Catholic and Greek Orthodox clerics also fought in the church.
However, this is mostly about turf and control, not so much about sectarianism.
Back in 2002 Ethiopian Orthodox and Egyptian Coptic Orthodox priests fought over control of the roof of the church. They both belong to the same church and acknowledge the same Pope of Alexandria.
Due to these disputes, for more than eight centuries, the key of Christianity's most holy site has been in the hands of two Muslim families in Jerusalem, the Joudeh and Nusseibeh
