The Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land and the International Coalition for Nazareth, said they are asking the Israeli government to stop the intimidation of Christians and Muslims in Nazareth by "extremist elements." They said local residents told them that every night cars drive through the city with loudspeakers blaring anti-Christian and anti-Israel propaganda.

Rev. Charles Kopp of the United Christian Council in Israel said those who had visited the area could testify the atmosphere is very hostile and intimidating.
