Mus,im, Christian cemeteries desecratedTwo cemeteries in Jaffa were desecrated on Friday, the eve of Yom Kippur, when headstones were smashed and racist slogans were spray-painted on graves. The two cemeteries, one Muslim and the other Christian, were vandalized by graffiti that said “Death to the Arabs”, and “Price Tag”, Channel 10 reported.

President of the Islamic Movement in Jaffa, Sheikh Ahme Abu Ajwa, said, “This is an attempt by extremists to incite the Arab masses,” calling for calm. United Arab List-Ta’al party leader MK Ibrahim Sarsur called upon the perpetrators, whoever they may be, “to end the racist attacks.”

Recently, there have been numerous attacks on Muslim places of worship in Israel and the West Bank.

A mosque was burned in the Galilee Bedouin village of Tuba-Zangariyya on Sunday night. The entire interior of the mosque went up in flames, causing heavy damage, and holy books inside the mosque were burned. Graffiti with the words “price tag” was found on the wall of the mosque.

A mosque in the West Bank village of Qusra, south of Nablus, was set on fire in early September. According to Palestinian sources, a group of settlers arrived at the village mosque at approximately 3 A.M., threw burning tires toward it, and broke several of its windows.

That attack occurred only hours after Israel security forces evacuated buildings in the Jewish settlement of Migron.
