Inquiry into Jerusalem church graffiti

Text size Aa Aa

Police in Jerusalem are investigating the second case of abusive graffiti this month daubed on a Baptist church.

Cars parked outside the church were also damaged, their tyres slashed.

Vandals scrawled in Hebrew on the church walls “death to Christianity” and “Price Tag”, a slogan used by ultranationalist Jewish settlers who have also targeted mosques and Israeli military installations.

The term refers to retribution settlers say they will exact for any attempt by the Israeli government to curb settlement in the occupied West Bank.
