JERUSALEM (AFP) -- Attackers desecrated graves in a Palestinian Christian cemetery in Jaffa and damaged property nearby, in an incident that bore the hallmarks of a "price tag" hate crime, police said on Thursday.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that headstones in the Orthodox Christian graveyard in Jaffa, a mixed Palestinian-Jewish area in southern Tel Aviv, were sprayed with Hebrew graffiti and the tires of five vehicles parked nearby were slashed.

"Apparently the incident took place overnight," he told AFP, saying the attackers had daubed "price tag" and "revenge" at the site.

"Price tag" is the term given extremist hate crimes which generally target Palestinians.

Initially carried out against Palestinians in retaliation for state moves to dismantle unauthorized settler outposts, such attacks have become a much broader phenomenon unrelated to any anti-settlement moves.

They tend to involve the vandalism or destruction of property and have included arson attacks on cars, mosques and olive trees.

Two weeks ago anti-Christian graffiti was daubed on the Church of the Dormition, one of Jerusalem's leading pilgrimage sites.

Police said they suspected Jewish religious extremists of spraying the Hebrew-language insults at the site, where tradition says the Virgin Mary died.

Keep it up morons! If there's a way to isolate Zionist-led Israel MORE from global Christians,Muslims,Jews this is how you do it! If these scum insult ANY graves,they insult everyone! Israeli Jews must decide who speaks in their name? The German people followed the Nazi scum like sheep TOO. The Italians,the Fascists,the long line of sheeple. DEEP SCARS never go away! Keep it up deluded Zionism,coz there ain't no "shining city on the hill"in your future EITHER! That's the "price"!

The Zionist propaganda machine scours the world high and low to find anything at even smells like it could be an anti-Semitic attack. All to create sympathy and brand Israel and Jews in general as continually under attack when in fact its often just the opposite. If persecution is such an important issue then go do something about these Jewish terror cells. If not close down the ADL.

Very ugly and so hateful. Wow. What is it that they hope to accomplish with this? Nothing good of course. May not remember how many Christians in the world see this as Jewish extremism. Maybe it is to push everyone away so can say "everyone hates us, everyone is against us"? Maybe that will work a little too well! This and mass graves in Jaffa. Old bones will speak what maybe Israel doesn't want world to know.

Michael Oren pretends this stuff never happens. After all, Israel is the only country where Christians are free, right?
