Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said at a Sunday cabinet meeting that Israel "not prepared to tolerate any vandalism, especially that directed against religious sensitivities."

"Our tolerance is toward religious sensitivities and our need to continue living together in coexistence and mutual respect, without violence, in tranquility and peace.  Our intolerance is directed toward those who oppose these practices and this way of life."

Nenayahu's comments came in response to Saturday night's acts of vandalism in Jaffa, in which graffiti was sprayed on tombstones in Jaffa and a Molotov cocktail was thrown at a synagogue.

He promised to exert the "fullest extent of the law" in pursuing the perpetrators.
