The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem has warned that it may shut its doors to pilgrims in protest at a dispute with an Israeli water company.

how much tourist money is generated by its presence? I bet a lot more than 2.3m

They should quit supplying free water and electricity to the palestinians instead.
