Unknown vandals spray-painted anti-Christian graffiti on the Dormition Abbey and a car parked nearby overnight Friday. The slogans read, "Christians are monkeys", "Christians are slaves" and "Havat Maon" referring to a settler outpost in the West Bank.


The car's tires were slashed. Jerusalem District Police have launched an investigation.
