Jewish extremist vandalize Muslim sites in Isreal
JERUSALEM (AP) - A new rogue element has emerged in the
Israeli-Palestinian conflict: Unknown assailants, widely assumed to
be Jewish extremists, have vandalized Muslim cemeteries, mosques
and farmlands in a spate of attacks that have put the country on
These attacks, which have recently spread from the West Bank
into Israel proper, have stoked fears of heightened violence and
sparked increased calls to find and punish the assailants. On
Sunday, Israeli leaders chimed in with condemnations, and police
said they were stepping up efforts to halt the violence.
In the latest incident, vandals sprayed-painted "Death to the
Arabs" in Muslim and Christian cemeteries in Tel Aviv. The
rampage, discovered late Saturday after Yom Kippur, the holiest day
in the Jewish calendar, followed a mosque burning last week in an
Arab village in northern Israel.
For several years, Israeli settlers have frequently attacked
Palestinian targets in the West Bank, vandalizing mosques and
uprooting olive trees. Nationalist settlers oppose a Palestinian
state on what they say is land promised to Jews in the Bible.
