Police believe that the anti-Semitic and anti-Israel graffiti attack on Yad Vashem Holocaust museum was perpetrated by haredi (ultra-Orthodox) extremists, Jerusalem police spokesman Shmuel Ben Ruby said Sunday. One of the graffiti slogans read "Haredi World Committee," Ruby said.

"We are checking in other directions, but right now, we believe that [the attack] was carried out by extremists," he added.

There were more than ten graffiti slogans spray-painted in black, concentrated an the Warsaw Ghetto Square and the memorial to the deportees next to the cattle car.

One slogan read "Thanks Hitler for the wonderful Holocaust you organized for us! Only because of you we received a state," while another said, "Jews, wake up, the evil regime does not protect us, it only endangers us."
