In ongoing efforts to embarrass the Israeli government and deter further settlement outpost evacuations, a suspected fringe group of ultra-right Jewish settlers carried out several more “price tag” vandalism attacks in recent weeks on Christian sites across Israel, including the landmark Latrun monastery and a Franciscan convent near the Dormition Abbey on Mount Zion.

Israeli officials have joined church leaders in Jerusalem in condemning the extremely offensive anti-Christian graffiti, and a number of prominent Jewish figures have paid solidarity visits to the Christian communities affected, but many clerics here are anxiously urging swifter police action to round up the culprits.
