Monastery near Beit Shemesh Vandalized With Anti-American Epithets

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

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. 

Jerusalem Area Monastery Damaged in ‘Price Tag’ Attack

Wednesday, August 21st, 2013

Another “price Tel Aviv” attack against a Christian monastery was discovered Wednesday morning in what may be a case of one or two right-wing vandals who have repeatedly caused damage to Christian property as well as Israel’s image.

A firebomb was thrown at the Beit Gemal Monastery, which caused minor damage, according to police, and the words “price tag,” were spray-painted on the wall of the monastery.

The police unit for nationalist crimes is investigating the vandalism.
