Police have arrested a 22-year-old Bnei Brak resident in connection with an arson and vandalism attack on the  Latrun monastery last September that drew international condemnation.

The monastery door was set alight and the names of West Bank outposts were spray-painted on the walls along with the epithet “Jesus is a monkey.” The incident was labeled a “price tag” attack in response to the evacuation last summer of Migron, a West Bank outpost.

Bnei Brak, a densely populated city of 178,000 near Tel Aviv, has a mostly Haredi Orthodox population.

An administrative restraining order was issued against the suspect from Bnei Brak, preventing him from traveling to the West Bank.

    harm to Israel's reputation must be considered. This man has given very much ammunition to those that would demand Israel give up Jerusalem. It also has eroded political support from Christian Allies.The maximum punishment also is needed to deter others and minimize critics of Israel.
