A monastery and a school in Jerusalem were damaged in vandalism incidents on Tuesday. According to local authorities, extremist Jewish settlers may be behind the events.

From the article:
Quote
Israeli police said they were investigating both incidents. Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that “price tag” was also painted at the monastery — a reference to a practice of Jewish extremists who lash out against the Israeli government for actions against settlers.

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.

From another one source: the one that is on a place where the three that Cross was made of had grown.

Seems the Israelis have their own counterpart to the Islamic extremists.  When will people finally learn?

In Jerusalem, an Orthodox Christian monastery was the site of an attack by graffiti sprayers. The incident took place on the heels of another dispute, between the churches of Greece and Georgia, over claims to ownership of the facility.

From the article:
Quote
In February, the outer walls of the Monastery of the Cross were graffitied with “Death to Christianity” and “Price Tag”, a slogan commonly used by extremist Jewish settlers protesting against the government’s removal of illegal outposts. Within days, the Georgian president Mikheil Saakashvili was quoted in the Georgian press saying that he was seeking to return control of the monastery to Georgia, which previously controlled it, most recently in the 17th century.
