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.

Which Greek Orthodox Monastery was attacked?
The memory of God should be treasured in our hearts like the precious pearl mentioned in the Holy Gospel. Our life's goal should be to nurture and contemplate God always within, and never let it depart, for this steadfastness will drive demons away from us. - Paraphrased from St. Philotheus of Sinai

Why do posters that claim to have me blocked keep sending me pms and responding to my posts? That makes no sense.

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.
