Price Tag Extremists Attack Christians and Muslims

Price Tag Israeli Extremists Attack Christians and Muslims

Does Al Qaeda Have A Jewish Nameplate?
Reported mostly by Arab press


The series of so-called "price-tag" attacks generally target Palestinian property but have also targeted Christians, left-wing Israeli organizations and IDF property, The actions of these "Jewish hooligans" include demonstrations, blocking of roads, vandalization of churches and mosques, clashes with Israeli security forces, throwing rocks and spray painting cars, torching of mosques, fields and orchards, and the destruction and uprooting of trees belonging to Palestinians. In 2009, graffiti was sprayed on burnt mosque“Prepare for the Price Tag.”

They appear to use the same tactics as militant Islamists, except they appear to be waving the flag of Israel extremists. Unlike the Palestine nationalists, no spokesman have been identified, the Israeli government hasn't arrested any of the attackers, they have no office or website. Nobody on the websphere seems to speak on their behalf or apologize for them as if this shady organization doesn't really exist except a series of carefully staged "attacks" which can be used for propaganda value on the behalf of Palestinian victims.  The only media organizations which cover  these attacks are mostly those on Iran's side of the Muslim resistance.

A Christian Monastery in the Deir Jamal area, between Jerusalem and Ramla, was attacked by a Molotov cocktail, while racist graffiti, used by Price Tag extremist Israeli groups, were found on its exterior walls, the Arabs48 news Website has reported. Full Story

The Monastery is currently holding a number of summer camps; various Racist graffiti such as Price Tag and Revenge have been found in Hebrew on its exterior walls, the Arabs48 News Website has reported.

Patriarch Fuad Twal, archbishop of the Roman Catholic Church, visited the monastery and strongly denounced the repeated attacks carried out by Israeli Price Tag extremists against churches and mosques in different parts of Palestine.

Greek Orthodox Archbishop, Atallah Hanna, also denounced the attack on Deir Jamal Monastery, and stated that the graffiti and the nature of the attack is similar to frequent attacks carried out by racist, extremist Israeli settler groups that do not believe in coexistence, and human brotherhood.

“We have witnessed increasing attacks against Islamic and Christian holy sites, and even graveyards, the message is to get us out of our land”, Hanna said, “But, our response is that we are here to stay, this is our homeland, those are our holy sites, and we reject all forms of racism and fundamentalism regardless of their origin”.

July 6, 2013 Price tag’ vandalism attacks on Muslim settlements in Israel on the rise
THE WASHINGTON POST .. the tires of 28 vehicles on his street had been slashed...Hamza and his neighbors found the spray-painted graffiti, in Hebrew, scrawled on a nearby stone wall: “Racism or Diaspora.” The English translation does not quite convey the message, which is closer to “get out or else.” The vandalism two weeks ago in Abu Ghosh is part of a growing phenomenon in Israel and the West Bank called “price tag” attacks. Initially, these acts of vandalism — spray-painting mosques, desecrating cemeteries, burning Qurans, chopping down olive trees — were part of a campaign, assumed to be waged by Jewish extremists, to extract retribution for actions against Jewish settlements in the West Bank.

    • The few hundred radicals of Hebron, the “Price Tag” teenage Jewish terrorists who firebomb Arab taxis, and the extremist haredim of Beit Shemesh do not carry the true mantle of normative Zionism and they do not represent normative Israel. Zionism is rooted in the cosmopolitan secularism of 1940s Dizengoff Street, in the heroic democrats who signed the humanitarian document that is Israel’s Declaration of Independence.

July 01, 2013.
Israel announced a crackdown on Monday against Jewish ultranationalists who vandalise Palestinian property, saying they were tantamount to terrorists and their attacks could fan sectarian violence.
The move followed the arrest of a 22-year Israeli from an Orthodox Jewish town near Tel Aviv for the vandalism of a Christian monastery in the occupied West Bank last year. The attack was carried out in solidarity with hardline Jewish settlers.
Graffiti left on the 19th-century Latrun Monastery referred to Migron, an unauthorised settler outpost evacuated by the Israeli government. The words “Jesus is a monkey” were also daubed on the wall in Hebrew, and the monastery’s doors torched.

The term “Price Tag Policy” became public in July 2008, when settler Itay Zar from "Havat Gilad" referred to the policy as such: “Whenever an evacuation (of settlers) is carried out—whether it is a bus, a trailer or a small outpost—we will respond.” It refers to illegal actions carried out by radical right-winged Israeli activists and settlers. The actions of these Jewish hooligans include demonstrations, blocking of roads, clashes with Israeli security forces, throwing rocks at Palestinian cars, torching of Palestinian fields and orchards, and the destruction and uprooting of trees belonging to Palestinians. The last is very important since according toOttoman laws still legally binding in Israel, trees can be used to show ownership of land.
