Friday May 31 2013, a number of Israeli settlers wrote anti-Christian graffiti on the back wall of a Christian Church, near the southern wall of the Old City of occupied East Jerusalem.
The settlers wrote various vulgar and racist statements, including “Christians are slaves”, “Christians are Monkeys”, in addition to “Price Tag”.
Israeli police spokeswoman for Arab media, Loba Samri, stated that the settlers are also believed to be behind puncturing the tires of two vehicles parked near the church.
“Price Tag” is a slogan the settlers use when attacking Palestinian property, churches and mosques.
The settlers believe that the Palestinians must pay the price every time Israeli removes an illegal settlement outpost. Dozens of attacks have been carried out by the settlers as part of their “Price Tag” assaults.
Such attacks also targeted Israeli leftist and peace groups as the settlers also blame them for any eviction of outposts.
