Jewish extremists torch cars, desecrate mosque in Israel

TEL AVIV, Israel (Ma'an) -- Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to three cars and sprayed racist graffiti on a mosque in northern Israel overnight Monday, Israeli media reported.

"Price-tag" and "Eviatar," which is thought to refer to the name of a settler stabbed to death last week, were found sprayed on the wall of a mosque in Wadi Ara, south of Haifa, Ynet reported.

The star of David was also found on the mosque's building.

Israeli police have launched an investigation into the incident, the Israeli daily added.

In Safed, racist graffiti reading "Arabs out" was found sprayed in the city.

"Price Tag" attacks have targeted mosques, Palestinian homes and Israeli military installations in the occupied West Bank, but are generally less common within Israel.

Last December, Jewish extremists vandalized a Jerusalem monastery, spraying "Jesus is a son of a bitch," and Israeli nationalist slogans on church walls and nearby vehicles.

In early September, suspected Jewish extremists torched the wooden door of a Jerusalem monastery and in February extremists wrote "Death to Christianity" on two Jerusalem churches.

In 2011, an ancient mosque in Jerusalem was torched and sprayed with the Star of David, "price tag," "Muhammad is a pig" and "A good Arab is a dead Arab" in Hebrew.

Question: Why are they "Extremists" when they're Jewish and "Terrorists" or "Militants" when they're Arabs?

'Israeli police have launched an investigation into the incident.' One of those inside jokes -- always good for a wry chuckle.

To quote the Palestinians: This is simply self-defense and legitimate resistance to Palestinian occupation of the Jewish homeland. All Palestinians are legitimate military targets because all Palestinian children are recruited by Fatah Hamas, and all Palestinina children are encouranged to martyr themselves in war. It's exactly what the Palestinians have been saying for the past 50 years to jusify their attacks on Israeli civilians. And now Rajoub says the Pals would nuke is if they could.

and, again, waiting, waiting, waiting, for these thugs to be arrested and brought before a court.

"suspected" jewish extremists? does this mean their behaviour could be considered normal ie not extreme?

Why "Jewish extremists"? Why not "Jewish terrorists"?

If Jews do something like this, they are "extremists" - if Palestinians do, they are "terrorists". Marvellous! And early on, the Stern, Haganah, Palmach, Irgun terrorists called themselves "freedom fighters". I'm surprised the settlers haven't adopted this term for themselves.

#4 Do you honestly believe the bullshit you write or are you just writing for kicks? The Jewish homeland has already been established. It's inside the green line on 1967 borders. Why can't that be good enough for you? Live and let live. Get out of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem and you won't have any problems anymore.

Remember Israel!When Jewish extremist,terrorists desecrate mosques,they insult Christians&Jews,TOO.Just as Christians were insulted when Nazi Zionist racist/bigots desecrated synagogues in WW2.We're outraged when synagogues&Jews are vandalized/persecuted.But,we're also outraged,when Israel's Nazi's vandalize/persecute mosques & Muslims. Don't imagine,Israel,that you're more worthy than other humans.That's misgiuded!

Sure Rami, as soon as there is a stable PA government that has no chance of losing to Hamas. The world all knows that if Hamas controls the WB there will be no peace. Live and let live you say? Let's hear it from your leaders when they return to peace talks. Right now, they all say their goal is to liberate Tel Aviv.

#12 "Right now, they all say their goal is to liberate Tel Aviv." Are you unravelling Brian? (#4 was pretty unhinged.) That's NOT what "they all say". It's what a few marginal hard-men in Gaza say. Of course, they're perfect bookends to YOUR lunatic fringe (Naftali Bennett, Moshe Feiglin, Danny Danon etc.) who want to LIBERATE Judea and Samaria! (And they're not so "fringe"!) But Brian, listen to Rami #9. THAT'S the real Palestinian voice. He's not calling for "Palestinian children...to martyr

(contd.) themselves in war." So why don't you believe him? "The Jewish homeland has already been established. It's inside the green line on 1967 borders. Why can't that be good enough for you? Live and let live. Get out of the West Bank, Gaza and East Jerusalem and you won't have any problems anymore." YOUR problem Brian, if I may be so bold, which is obviously driving you nuts (eg. #4) is that while you SAY you want the Palestinians to "return to peace talks" and negotiate a two-state

19/05/2013 16:13
(contd.) settlement, you refuse to actually GIVE anything to achieve it. Not a dunam. Not an inch of Eretz Yisrael. You want it all. You know Rami's post is the truth, but as an Israeli and a Jew, deep, DEEP down, it doesn't fit the "narrative" and you REFUSE to believe him.

Put it this way, Ian. So long as your illegal occupation of Australia continues, I have a problem with your arguments. Your attempts to put words in my mouth and tell everybody what I believe shows the world that your arguments are hollow. You've never met me, never talked to me, yet you tell the world what I believe? It's like me saying Ian believes the genocide of Aborigines is justified, and the survivors get Aussie passports so that Ian isn't an occupier. You are. Go back to Europe.

17 ) Brian Cohen / Israel
20/05/2013 08:55
Actually, Ian, you obviously missed the story about Fatah leaders condemning an NGO for holding a sports event with Palestinian and Israeli kids to promote co-existence. The Fatah leaders are clearly telling their youth that peace and coexistence is not their goal. Jibril Rajoub was just widely quoted (u can even watch him) saying if Pals had nuclear weapons they would use them. You're just another foreign fool meddling trying to simplify a complex situation. Stay in your Aussie settlement.

Ian - you have never met me and don't know me, yet you libelously make statements on my behalf. You should post an apology. I do not believe Rami because there is absolutely no proof that an Israeli withdrawal to within the 1967 armistice lines will bring peace. Nor can you offer any proof. On the contrary, Hamas leaders themselves say they do not want peace, and their goal is now to take over the PLO. You, Ian, apparently don't believe what you read on Maan.

#Brian Cohen, you sound as though you are one of the moronic squatters trying to justify your actions - Netanyahu won't be happy with your comment. He is desperately making a case for his IDF thugs re the little Palestinian boy that was shot while in his father's arms. The incident was shown on French TV. We also saw it on Australian TV!

#16 You kind of prove my point Brian. Israel refuses to withdraw from the West Bank, control violent settlers or respect the Haram (and continues to evict, demolish and build in occupied Palestine) but it will stage a largely meaningless soccer match involving 13-year-olds from Hebron to promote "co-existence"! It falls SO far short of addressing the REAL issues (which Rami outlined) that some exasperated Fatah leaders condemn it as "normalisation" and unhelpful. They've got a point.

21 ) ian / australia
22/05/2013 06:31
(contd.) The Mifalot event is pretty maddening. There's no occupation (it says) no oppression, no injustice or criminality, no state terrorism. Just children who need to be shown how to "co-exist" without "hate". Little wonder Fatah leaders react with frustration and scorn. (And really, how long do you think the fuzzy Kumbaya moment will survive back in the brutal reality of Hebron?) Ditto Jibril Rajoub. An exasperated flourish ("if we had nuclear weapons..."), obviously not meant to be taken

22 ) ian / australia
22/05/2013 06:34
(contd.) literally or in ANY way official, at the end of an honest, intelligent TV interview! Which brings me to you. Rami laid out the main issues in #9 (and HE'S not "another foreign fool meddling trying to simplify a complex situation") and I suggested that you, on some deep level, simply refuse to listen. I said you convey the deep Israeli trait of refusing to relinquish ANYTHING though claiming to want a "negotiated peace" (demonstrating that your idea of a "negotiated peace" is Israel

22/05/2013 06:38
(contd.) getting a GREAT deal when a bludgeoned Palestinian population finally accept a few disconnected "islands" for a "state" and concede, once and for all, they got screwed!) And I said, as NONE of this fits the received Jewish/Israeli "script", you refuse to hear it. In response, we get waffling about a peripheral, slightly creepy, though mainly innocuous sporting event staged in Holon and mock outrage at the justifiable criticism leveled by SOME Fatah leaders at it. I rest my case.

#16 "Put it this way, Ian. So long as your illegal occupation of Australia continues, I have a problem with your arguments." Put it this way. If Australia is based on heinous crimes and I'm a genocidal settler who should go back to Europe, surely Israel aspires to be better than that and shouldn't invoke Australia's moral terpitude to justifiy its own. (Also, don't see why my "arguments" are negated by Australian history.)

#16 "It's like me saying Ian believes the genocide of Aborigines is justified, and the survivors get Aussie passports so that Ian isn't an occupier." Except I've never implied that, whereas when I've conjectured about YOUR motives or mindset or what you "believe", I think YOU have (if you know what I mean). I'm responding to actual indicators. Not just slurring you! And its not "libelous" to point out there are things you won't address or admit (like Israeli guilt) and realities you seem

(contd.) to deny (the occupation and Palestinian resistance to it) or to speculate about the reason why. And what else, in all reality, can a civilised country do for "the survivors" of its darker days but extend equal rights?

29/05/2013 14:21
#18 "I do not believe Rami because there is absolutely no proof that an Israeli withdrawal to within the 1967 armistice lines will bring peace. Nor can you offer any proof." Of course it would "bring peace"! Palestinians would be ecstatic. With a capital in East Jerusalem, control over the Haram (with the Rambam gate bricked up), the WHOLE West Bank free of settlers and soldiers and a liberated Gaza (linked by highway) in control over its air and sea (and no 500 metre buffer zone!) etc. etc.

28 ) ian / australia
29/05/2013 14:22
(contd.) do you REALLY think newly sovereign Palestine would jeopardise it all by declaring war? (And don't you find it pretty touching: people from the West Bank who have never seen the sea traveling freely to the beaches of Gaza, and Gazans, who have only ever known their open-air cage, visiting the Aqsa for the first time?) But there's another implication (if I may be "libelous"). You don't believe Rami because you don't accept Palestinian violence is a response to Israeli provocation.

29 ) ian / australia
29/05/2013 14:22
(contd.) If you don't believe a state on the '67 line would stop the suicide bombings or children being "encouraged to martyr themselves in war" (#4) then it follows you think decades of Palestinian violence is the result of pure, irrational hatred of Jews, not valid grievances about Israeli aggression. (If anyone needs to apologise Brian, it would be you for that libelous characterisation.) I'd also point out that Israel should end the occupation and withdraw to it's (defacto) borders not

29/05/2013 14:23
(contd.) because it might be calculated to "bring peace", but because it's the right thing to do. Legally and morally. "Bring peace" is an odd phrase anyway. States co-exist peacefully by NOT attacking each other and upholding international law. That's it really. And if any hardcore, throwback remnant fired a rocket into Israel (from sovereign Palestine) it would be an act of war and dealt with swiftly by BOTH countries. One last point: Israel doesn't fear the absence of "peace" with

31 ) ian / australia
29/05/2013 14:23
(contd.) Palestinians because it's no real threat. It's the status quo Israel is content to maintain. Greedy for Palestinian land, Israel plays the besieged victim fretting about its vulnerable "waist", calling it indefensible to attack by Hezbollah/Iran backed Palestine! Hah! The lies rise to Heaven. Israel, armed to the teeth, fears no-one and could effortlessly defend a state on the '67 border. Poor beleaguered Israel is a crock of the highest order. And a shameless, bottomless one at that.

#18 "Hamas leaders themselves say they do not want peace, and their goal is now to take over the PLO." Khaled Meshaal wants "a Palestinian state in the 1967 lines with Jerusalem as its capital, without any settlements or settlers [and] not an inch of land swaps." It would certainly involve those "painful concessions" Bibi talks about, but it sounds like an offer of "peace" from the Hamas head honcho to me.

#18 "You, Ian, apparently don't believe what you read on Maan." Well, mostly I do. And mostly Ma'an is an endless litany of Israeli violence against Palestinians IN occupied Palestine and Palestinian reactions to it. And an end to the occupation, and a free, sovereign Palestine (on fair borders) would mean an END of ALL the violence (for reasons stated above).
