Israeli Settlers Spray Racist Graffiti on Mosque in Northern Israel

FUREIDIS (or NORTHERN ISRAEL), April 29, 2014 – (WAFA) – Israeli settlers of the so called “Price Tag” group Tuesday sprayed racist graffiti on the walls of a mosque in Fureidis in northern Israel, local sources said.

Settlers spray-painted the ‘Star of David’ and anti-Arab and Moslem graffiti on the exterior wall of the mosque.

ABC News reported that attackers spray-painted a slogan reading “close mosques and not yeshivas (Jewish seminaries)” and slashed the tires of vehicles parked nearby in a ‘price-tag’ attack.

‘Price tag’ attacks are perpetrated against Palestinians and Palestinian property, including churches and mosques, inside Israel as well as the occupied Palestinian Territories, including East Jerusalem. They are intended to terrorize Palestinians intimidate them in order to force displace them.

Perpetrators of such attacks are rarely prosecuted by relevant Israeli authorities.
