Crazy Armenian Monks brawling

Now this is something you don't see every day: Armenian fighting monks!

"Fighting erupted between Greek Orthodox and Armenian monks at the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, the traditional site of Christ's crucifixion."

"Israeli police have had to restore order at one of Christianity's holiest sites after a mass brawl broke out between monks in Jerusalem's Old City."

"Two monks from each side were detained as dozens of worshippers traded kicks and punches at the shrine, said police."

"Trouble flared as Armenians prepared to mark the annual Feast of the Cross"
It reminds me of the time a volatile Armenian guy I used to know got into a fight at the dump with another guy over some trivial local matter. I guess they feel passionately about things. But decorum, please, decorum!
