Jerusalem monastery desecrated

Israeli police say "death to Christians" and other Hebrew-language graffiti has been scrawled on a monastery in Jerusalem.



Jerusalem: Israeli police say "death to Christians" and other Hebrew-language graffiti has been scrawled on a Greek Orthodox monastery in Jerusalem.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said on Tuesday that "price tag" was also painted on the monastery in the Valley of the Cross, near Israel`s Parliament.

The phrase "price tag" refers to retaliation by suspected Jewish extremists for Israeli government actions against settlers.

Such acts originally targeted West Bank mosques but have recently expanded to include a mosque inside Israel, Israeli military bases, and now, a Christian holy site.

Army Radio reported that "Maccabees of Migron" was painted on the monastery, too. Maccabees were ancient Jewish heroes, and Migron is an unauthorised settlement facing a court-ordered evacuation.
