It’s one of the largest Christian networks in the world, and it has now become the victim of a catastrophic firebombing. The Jerusalem studios of Daystar were completely destroyed over the weekend during a weekend arson attack, reduced to a pile of rubble and ashes,” said network owner Marcus Lamb.
WND The pro-Israel studios in Abu Tor on Mount Zion overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem were in the final stages of a year-long renovation, and a celebration with Daystar’s key stakeholders had been set for June 1st. The fire was intentionally set at about 2:15 a.m. on Saturday, according to reports.
Police have two working theories concerning possible motivation. The first is the firebombing was religiously motivated since “the TV station is Christian and it’s Ramadan, and Muslims are upset and blah, blah, blah,” he told the Post.
The other scenario involves an Arab worker at an adjacent studio who in recent days became upset with some of Daystar’s employees. That employee has not returned to work since the blaze, Sharett said.
