'Mohammed is dead' sprayed on home

Palestinian village of Beit Ilu sustains yet another attack by vandals in form of racist graffiti

Unknown persons sprayed racial slurs and a Star of David on a Palestinian home in the West Bank village of Beitilu. The vandals wrote among other things: Mohammed is dead. Police are searching for the culprits.

 

Mohammed Raduan, head of the village council, told Ynet that the graffiti was found Tuesday morning. He added that it was not the first time Beit Ilu had been targeted in such a fashion.

 

 

"They wrote, 'Mohammed is a pig' and 'Mohammed is dead', as well as 'Revenge' and 'Settlement 18'," he said. The latter may have been in reference to a recently evacuated settlement near Beit El.

 

Raduan says village residents claim they heard noises during the night as well as barking dogs, but were too afraid to leave their homes to investigate.

 

"Once we found the graffiti, we notified the authorities," Raduan said.

 

The village, which is located near Ramallah, has been targeted by vandals in the past. Vehicles have been torched and graffiti has been sprayed as part of what settlers call the 'Price tag policy', which includes acts of revenge.
