A group of Palestinian gunmen “acted like animals, like greedy monsters” while holed up in Bethlehem’s Church of the Nativity, according to a priest who serves at the church. Several Greek Orthodox priests said the gunmen, who have since been deported, guzzled beer, wine and scotch despite an Islamic ban on drinking alcohol, according to a report published Wednesday in The Washington Times.
