The door of a Christian monastery in Latrun, near Jerusalem, was set on fire on Tuesday morning, and anti-Christian slogans were found spray-painted on the monastery’s walls.

The arson and graffiti are suspected to be a “price tag” attack, following the recent evacuation of Migron, a settlement outpost in the West Bank.

Monks residing at the monastery noticed the burning door on Tuesday morning, and called police after extinguishing the flames. Graffiti sprayed on the monastery walls included the words “Migron,” and “Jesus is a monkey.”

The Jerusalem Police’s central unit has opened an investigation into the incident.

Baruch Marzel, a right-wing activist, connected the attack to the evacuation of Migron. “We said that evacuating Migron could fan the flames. There’s an entire community that feels very bitter,” said Marzel.

“Price tag” attacks are generally carried out by West Bank settlers and their supporters against Palestinian targets, often in retaliation for moves against settlements.

The incident is the first “price tag” attack to take place at the monastery. Roughly three months ago, racist graffiti was found at the nearby Jewish-Arab town of Neve Shalom. Then, the tires of 14 cars parked along the town’s main road were slashed, and slogans such as “death to Arabs,” “revenge,” and “Ulpana outpost,” were found sprayed on the vehicles.

In February, similar anti-Christian graffiti was found sprayed on the walls of the Greek church at a monastery in Jerusalem’s Valley of the Cross, and a Baptist Church in central Jerusalem. In both incidents, the graffiti included phrases such as “Jesus is dead,” “Death to Christians,” “Mary is a prostitute,” and “price tag.”

    The biggest fools are these evangelical Christian holy rollers. Not only do they send their hard earned cash to these false, sellout, Zionist prophets but they support Israel’s evils like brainless zombies. The present state of Israel is about as much as the biblical Israel as Babylon,
    Long Island is to the biblical Babylon……

    Yeah, Hagee’s a real class act. I live in San Antonio, Hagee’s HQ for spewing his racist garbage. Lotta stories can be told about him. One I’m personally aware of is when he needed a loan a few years ago. He applied to the bank my nephew works at. Seems he was running a little light on cash. As a side note, he has a wonderful collection of sports cars. Yep, a real man of the cloth. BTW, his loan was denied.
