Settler sprays 'slaughter Jews' on own car
Young Jewish man admits to police he staged 'Arab price tag' act to 'raise awareness'

A young Jewish man was arrested overnight Friday for staging an 'Arab price tag' act on his own vehicle.

 

The 22 year old, who resides in a settlement near Jerusalem and was visiting family in the capital's Kiryat Moshe neighborhood, called the police a little after midnight and told the dispatcher that someone had spray-painted the phrase "Itbah al-Yahud" ("slaughter the Jews" in Arabic) on his car and slashed its tires.

He also claimed that a mixture of sugar and silicon was poured on the hood.

 

Officers who arrived at the scene interrogated the young man, who eventually admitted that he had damaged his own vehicle to "raise awareness" to "price tag" acts committed by Arabs against Jews.

 

He spent the night in a detention facility.
