Cars set alight, anti-Arab graffiti sprayed in towns near Jerusalem

Militants set fire to dozens of vehicles and sprayed racist slogans in hate crime attacks in two locations near Jerusalem on Friday morning, police said.

Three vehicles were set ablaze in Abu Ghosh and two in Ein Nakba, causing severe damage.

I was not injured.

Graffiti was sprayed with slogans: “Enough of terrorist attacks, deport Arabs” and “Israeli people alive”.

Police said they were looking for a suspect for the nationalistically motivated arson.

Anti-Palestinian vandalism by Jewish extremists is common in the West Bank but slightly rarer in Israel.

Activists have expressed concern that recent election victories by far-right parties have emboldened extremists.

Incidents of vandalism against Palestinians and Israeli security forces are commonly referred to as “price tag” attacks, with perpetrators calling it retaliation for Palestinian violence or government policies considered hostile to the settler movement. .

Arrests of perpetrators are extremely rare, rights groups lament convictions even more unusual, and the majority of prosecutions in such cases are dropped.

The attack comes amid heightened tensions in the West Bank, two days after the deadly terrorist attack in Jerusalem.

Israeli politics speaks out

I joined The Times of Israel after many years covering US and Israeli politics for the Hebrew news media.

Responsible reporting on Israeli politicians is a 360-degree view of what they say and do, not just telling what is happening but what it means in the wider context of Israeli society and the region. I believe you mean what you mean.

This is hard to do because we rarely take politicians at face value. I need to do more to present full context and overcome my own biases.

We are proud of our work in telling the story of Israeli politics straight and comprehensiveI believe Israel will be stronger and more democratic when professional journalists do that difficult job well.

thank you very much,
Tal Schneider, political correspondent
