Palestinian Cars Vandalized In Apparent Hate Attack

JERUSALEM — Palestinian cars were vandalised overnight in the Shuafat neighbourhood of Israeli-annexed east Jerusalem, in an attack that bore the hallmarks of a hate crime by rightwing Israeli extremists.

Six vehicles had their tyres slashed and were daubed with slogans in Hebrew reading “Price tag,” “Death to the enemy” and “Knitted kippa,” a reference to the small crocheted skullcap worn by men of the religious-nationalist Jewish settlement movement, an AFP photographer reported.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told AFP that more graffiti was found on a wall in the area.

“Price tag” is the name of a revenge campaign by Jewish extremists, for the most part targeting Palestinians and Arabs in response to Israeli government moves against settler outposts.

2. we in the US were so caught up in the election

lots of things flew by including this, alternately we;ve become used to seeing this kind of stuff so perhaps some numbing of the senses has occurred too

3. I noticed the 'Pallywood' thread was getting lots of attention and outrage...

I guess attacks on Palestinians and their property are usually only worthy of commenting on if Palestinians themselves can be blamed for it

btw, good election result, hey? I did a little happy dance when Obama got back in
