Dozens of "Jewish-Arab Center for Peace" workers, along with representatives of the youth movement "HaShomer HaTzair," braved thunderstorms to travel to Umm el-Kutuf following Tuesday's price-tag incident.

Their mission was to take a tour of the village, witness the damage done and to plant olive trees as a symbol of hope and peace.

Yaniv Sagee, head of the "Givat Haviva" educational institute said, "price tags are detrimental to the democratic process in Israel."

"This type of terror is forbidden, and sons and daughters of the Jewish nation here in Israel cannot allow these acts even the slightest hint of legitimacy," he added.
