BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to a mosque and sprayed racist graffiti in the town of Umm al-Fahm on Friday, an Israeli police spokesman said.

Mickey Rosenfeld told Ma'an that there was "damage to the front door of the mosque and graffiti found on nearby walls."

Israeli police and border police arrived at the scene and are investigating the incident, he said, adding that the attack had "price tag" motives.

Graffiti on the walls in the town read "Arabs out", according to Israeli media.

In early April, Jewish extremists slashed the tires of over 40 cars and sprayed racist graffiti in the predominantly Christian town of Jish in northern Israel.

"Only goyim should be evacuated from our land" was sprayed on village walls.

A week earlier, Jewish extremists sprayed anti-Christian graffiti on the walls of a convent west of Jerusalem and damaged vehicles parked nearby.

Slogans including "Mary is a cow," "price tag" and "America (is) Nazi Germany" were sprayed in Hebrew on the walls of the Roman Catholic sanctuary.

In early January, Jewish extremists sprayed graffiti reading "Death to Arabs," "No to Coexistence," and "Arabs = Murderers" on a building in Jaffa.

In the same month, a group of settlers set fire to the facade of a mosque in the Salfit village of Deir Istiya and sprayed racist slogans on its walls.

The perpetrators of violence against Palestinian communities are rarely prosecuted. There are hundreds of racist attacks against Palestinians in Israel and the occupied West Bank every year.

A terrible act for which the perpetrators must be punished.

Couldn't have happened. Zionists never destroy mosques or churches. It's funny to realize there are Zionists who will actually post such claims in all seriousness.

To Outlier #1: 'A terrible act for which the perpetrators must be punished.' Considering the number of times it has happened, what punishment would you say is appropriate?
