Yacimovich: Latrun vandals damage Israel's image
September 4, 2012 13:23

Labor Party leader Shelly Yacimovich said on Tuesday that the arson and graffiti on the Latrun Monastery that took place on Monday night is "hooliganism and racism," adding that such acts damage Israel's image.

Yacimovich noted that the monastery had been a welcoming place for Israeli visitors for decades, and the fact that it was hit by vandals indicates "extreme hatred [by the attackers] for anyone and everyone, regardless of their political position."

She commented: "The vandalism was perpetrated by an extreme minority that does not represent Israeli society, nor all the settlers. They are damaging Israel's image."

She called on the Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) and the police to find the assailants and bring them to justice.
