Vandals deface monastery in Israel

2012-09-04 14:05

Jerusalem — Israeli police say vandals have spray-painted anti-Christian and pro-settler graffiti on a monastery located on a hilltop overlooking the highway linking Tel Aviv with Jerusalem.

Suspicion fell on Jewish settlers and their supporters who retaliate against anti-settlement measures, generally by attacking Palestinian property, but also by vandalising Christian sites and Israeli military facilities.

Earlier this week, the government ordered settlers out of two unauthorised enclaves in the West Bank.

Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said on Tuesday that the vandalism at the Trappist monastery in Latrun took place overnight. Some of the graffiti referred to unauthorised settler outposts and one read, "Jesus is a monkey".

The vandals also set the monastery's door on fire.

      The UN will be very upset about this... but does Israel give a rat's ass. NO... the attitude is 'What are you going to do about it...?'
