BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Over 1,000 Palestinian citizens of Israel in Umm al-Fahm protested Monday against "price tag" attacks after a mosque in the town was vandalized by suspected Jewish extremists days before.

Protesters closed Route 65 and Israeli police were heavily deployed in the area, Palestinian member of the Knesset Taleb al-Sana told Ma'an.

Al-Sana said Israel "should arrest members of the 'price tag' gang and prosecute them as a terrorist organization."

"However, we are faced with carelessness and recklessness by the ministry of internal security, as the price tag gang has legitimacy in the government," he added.

Two other Palestinian MKs attended the protest -- Muhammad Baraka and Raed Salah, al-Sana said.

Suspected Jewish extremists set fire to a mosque and sprayed racist graffiti in the town on Friday.

Israeli police spokesman Micky 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.

The Israeli news site Ynet quoted the mosque's imam as calling on the police to "arrest the criminals. Their only aim is to hurt relations between Arabs and Jews."

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.

Seeing as the whole plan behind Sharon pulling Jews out Gaza was to delibarately occupy MORE of the West Bank&Jerusalem & CLOSE OFF &BOMB Gaza,at whim,once the Jews had gone!Take the 'price tag' from the $3 million Martin Schlaff paid Sharon's sons for a Casino(2003),LOL!

Jews are "faced with more carelessness and recklessness by Palestinian internal security", as Palestinian Terrorist "gangs have Far More legitimacy in the Palestinian government", even to the extreme of a government official being criticized for condemning the recent murder of a Jewish policeman.
