JERUSALEM – Israeli police are investigating hate graffiti and
vandalism in an Israeli community built especially for Jews and Arabs
to coexist peacefully.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said Friday that "death to Arabs"
was sprayed on buildings, and car tires were slashed in Neve Shalom
near Jerusalem. The village was founded in the 1970s to show that
Jews and Arabs can live together in peace.
Some graffiti said "revenge" and referenced outposts, which could
mean it was retaliation by extremist Israeli settlers to protest
This week Israel´s parliament endorsed demolishing an unauthorized
West Bank outpost.
