A Catholic monastery near Beit Shemesh was vandalized sometime before Tuesday morning with anti-American and anti-Christian epithets, and the tires of four vehicles also were slashed.

“America is Nazi Germany” and “Price Tag — Peace Agreement,” as well as “Jesus is a monkey” and “Mary is a cow,” were spray painted on the walls of the monastery, located in an Arab village near Beit Shemesh.

Jerusalem police are investigating.

Price tag refers to the strategy adopted by extremist settlers and their supporters to exact retribution for settlement freezes and demolitions or Arab attacks on Jews.

Other monasteries in the area have been victims of suspected price tag attacks in the past.

  1. No argument here.

  2. Jews would not do that

  3. This was NOT done by Jews!! Only Muslims would stoop so low!!

  4. When investigation reveals who did this, Jew or Muslim, they should be imprisoned for a long time. This desecration is intolerable.

  5. I hope the police catch these villains and that they get a long prison term.
    The prison sentence for this type of crime should carry a minimum of 10 years.
    I am a very rightwing Zionist Jew .
    We do not need this vile, disgusting behavior against our Isreali Christian supporters esp. those who live in Israel .
    Israel does not need this kind of vandalism, which only creates more hatred of Jews and Israel.
    But I am sure that the Christians who were affected understnd that this behaviur is totally against all forms of Judaism and Israeli law and with Israel being the target of the world and of many churches, we do not need this kind of behavior

  6. I would like to add.
    The Pesident, nt, Prime Minister and Chief Rabbi needs to apologise for this to the world's Christians
    I am sure that this would show the world that Israel will not tolerate this vile behavior

  7. Don Hansen says:

    TERRIBLE, I’ sure it’s very HOT where those that done this are headed.

  8. Karen Bryant says:

    Lovely people aren’t they!

  9. Dean Petree says:

    America has become almost like Nazi Germany if our constitutional rights don’t matter any more. It’s a freee for all, and any thing you can get away with goes////NOT

  10. iberkerinish en der veldt.

  11. The vandalism is despicable. The "price tag" theme has a point.
