Israeli vandals slashed the tires of 40 cars and trucks and sprayed a hate message was sprayed on a wall in a Christian village near Safed (Tzfat) late Wednesday night or Thursday morning, the second attack apparently aimed at Christians in one week.

The message sprayed on a wall of the Jish village read “Only goyim (non-Jews) should be evacuated from our land.”

Residents of the village, home to about 3,000 people, are predominantly Maronite-Christian but approximately one-third are Muslim

Safed Police Chief Superintendent Yoram Azulay told Ynet “We are dealing with outlaws, and will do everything to bring them to justice. This is an exceptional and serious event.”

Israel media called attack a “price tag” incident, referring to extremists who previously have vandalized Arab and Christian property in retaliation for the government actions against Jews in Judea and Samaria or Palestinian Authority Arab attacks on Jews.

However, the phenomenon seemingly has spread without any relation to specific government actions.

Police have failed to bring any meaningful indictments against the attackers despite dozens of attacks over the past two years.

  5. Always the Muslims are enemies

  6. If they have not been caught how do you know they are Israelis??

    It’s not a good thing, however let’s put things in persecutive. Slashing tires is not the same crime as rock throwing at cars or stabbings.

  9. from where they know that they were jewish? I would not be sure they are not a muslims….in any of the cases is not mature and fair..

  10. Why are arab muslims all about hate? The fruit of the devil is hate and death! That’s why they are isolated and undesirable!

  11. Jumping to conclusions .Catch them and then judge .!

  12. What a f@#$ing disgrace. They must be caught and punished .

  13. they should be shot!!!

  14. We know who did this, it doesn’t take a genius to figure this out!

  15. Better find out you can't afford to lose those who pray and stand with Israel.

  16. This is unnecessary and hateful. The Torah commands Israel to love their neighbour and show kindness to the stranger in their gates. Whether born in Israel or not, whether one can stand the missionaries or not, there’s no need to damage their personal property.

  17. Robert Gentry – You are disgusting. Is material property of a Christian more valuable than a persons life? I wish I could spit in your face right now

  18. Sound more like ignorance and fear !

  19. I hope it’s not done by religious Jews. Faith in G-d is recommendable but religion is man made and people follow people. Than we don’t differ from radical Muslims. Don’t use G-d’s name to justify hate preaching.

  20. Israeli Arabs or Jews, still not right.

  21. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Disgrace send IDF to prevent this

  22. Cliff Santa Maria says:

    Israeli Christians are of the same covenant with Jews. They are both minorities and should be protecting each other.

  23. I hope that the police will find those guilty of this despicable crime.

    They deserve a sentence of no less than 10 years. That should make others think before they ever do anything like that again .

    WE cannot afford to loose the support of the israeli Christians, because of some styupidity.
