Israel - Church Vandalized

JERUSALEM (AP) - Israeli police say vandals have sprayed
anti-Christian graffiti at a Baptist church in Jerusalem.
     Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Monday that the vandals
desecrated the church and slashed tires on three cars nearby.
     Rosenfeld says that words "price tag" were also scrawled on
the church property. It's a reference to a practice of Jewish
extremists who lash out against the Israeli government for actions
against settlers.
     Such attacks usually target West Bank mosques but have recently
spread to a mosque in Israel, an Israeli military base, dovish
activists and Christian sites. Earlier in February, vandals
attacked a Greek Orthodox monastery and a school for Jewish and
Arab students in Jerusalem.
     Rosenfeld says the police are searching for suspects.
