    JERUSALEM (Reuters) - Patriarchs and heads of Jerusalem's churches announced Sunday the closure of the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in protest against a new Israeli tax policy and a proposed land confiscation bill, which church leaders say is "an unprecedented systematic attack on Christians in the Holy Land."
    The heads of Roman Catholic, Armenian and Armenian churches said the church would remain closed until further notice.
    After the protests, a government committee postponed a meeting scheduled for Sunday to discuss a draft law allowing the state to confiscate land in Jerusalem that churches have sold to private real estate companies in recent years.
    The stated aim of the bill is to protect homeowners from the possibility of non-extension of private companies for leases. Churches with large tracts of land in Jerusalem say such a law would make it difficult for them to find buyers for their land, which would hinder the provision of funds to cover the expenses of their religious institutions.
    "This abhorrent bill will make it possible to confiscate church lands if it is approved," said a statement issued by the Patriarch of Jerusalem Theophilos III, Francesco Patton, the Custodian of the Holy Land, and Norhan Manojian, the Armenian Patriarch of Jerusalem.
    "We agreed to postpone the committee's discussion to him for a week, so that we can work with the churches in an attempt to resolve the dispute," said Rachel Azaria, the legislator who introduced the bill in a statement.
    The churches also protested the cancellation of the Jerusalem Municipality of the Israeli occupation authorities tax exemption for the property of the commercial churches in Jerusalem.
    "This reminds us of laws of the same character that were applied to the Jews during the Dark Ages in Europe," the church leaders said.
    Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat said on Twitter that it would be unreasonable to expect the tax exemption for commercial church property, which includes hotels and retailers, to continue.
    "Let me make it clear: we are not talking about places of worship that will remain tax-free under the law." C
