Mosque vandalism grips country

A mosque was vandalized overnight and the media and the politicians are rushing to blame the revenants, with one government minister going so far as to call it 'terrorism.'
"Price tag" assailants burned a mosque in Jab'a village, near Ramallah sometime overnight Monday, police said Tuesday.

The attackers also sprayed graffiti on the mosque, including the words "Ulpana war," indicating that this was a price tag attack- an act of violence by right-wing activists against Arabs aimed at deterring Israeli leadership from acting against the settlement enterprise.
Except, of course, that there is no proof that the 'settlers' did it, nor has there been proof in the past that most of these attacks were carried out by 'settlers.' In fact, at least one such attack was proven to have been carried out by Muslims. But now that JPost has morphed into Haaretz lite, anything is possible.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu condemned the attack, calling the assailants "intolerant and irresponsible lawbreakers" and said they would be brought to justice.

Defense Minister Ehud Barak strongly also spoke out against the attack, calling it a "criminal act" and promising a swift response by the IDF.

"This is a grave and criminal act meant to destroy the social fabric in the region and distract the IDF from its missions, which include protecting Israeli citizens in the region," Barak said. "I have instructed the IDF and security forces to act with all available means in order to capture the perpetrators and to bring them to justice."

Deputy Foreign Minister Danny Ayalon called the graffiti an act of "terror," adding that such activities harm not only Israel but also the settlement enterprise.

"Just yesterday I said at a Hasbara conference that price tag attacks are illegal, immoral, and gravely undermine the image of Israel and the settlement enterprise under the gaze of the international community," Ayalon wrote on his Facebook page. "And here, this morning, we hear about another price tag attack."

"We must not allow such acts of terrorism to continue," he said.
Terrorism? Really? How many people were killed? None. How many were wounded? None. So where is the terrorism? If this were an act of terrorism, they would have come to the mosque while it was full of people and opened fire with machine guns. That would be an act of terrorism.

I have a hard time swallowing that spray cans are terrorism but murdering Jewish babies is resistance. Someone needs to make a paint from radioactive pig blood.

The syntax in the graffiti shown in the photographs says "Arab"

Gershon, can you explain that?

"price tag attacks ... gravely undermine the image of Israel and the settlement enterprise under the gaze of the international community"

Which is why anti-Zionists do it, of course!

Meanwhile, earlier this year, a mosque in Belgium was torched and the Imam was killed in the fire. But of course that wasn't newsworthy for the NYT. Double standards are a sure sign of antisemitism.
