Jewish extremists torch cars, desecrate mosque in Israel

May 14, 2013 12:54 P.M. (Updated: May 18, 2013 7:41 P.M.)
TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to three cars and sprayed racist graffiti on a mosque in northern Israel overnight Monday, Israeli media reported.

"Price-tag" and "Eviatar," which is thought to refer to the name of a settler stabbed to death last week, were found sprayed on the wall of a mosque in Wadi Ara, south of Haifa, Ynet reported.

The star of David was also found on the mosque's building.

Israeli police have launched an investigation into the incident, the Israeli daily added.

In Safed, racist graffiti reading "Arabs out" was found sprayed in the city.

"Price Tag" attacks have targeted mosques, Palestinian homes and Israeli military installations in the occupied West Bank, but are generally less common within Israel.

Last December, Jewish extremists vandalized a Jerusalem monastery, spraying "Jesus is a son of a bitch," and Israeli nationalist slogans on church walls and nearby vehicles.

In early September, suspected Jewish extremists torched the wooden door of a Jerusalem monastery and in February extremists wrote "Death to Christianity" on two Jerusalem churches.

In 2011, an ancient mosque in Jerusalem was torched and sprayed with the Star of David, "price tag," "Muhammad is a pig" and "A good Arab is a dead Arab" in Hebrew.
