Unknown assailants on Monday daubed inciteful writing in the Palestinian village of Deir Dibwan i e West Bank. The graffiti, reading "Here they incite to murder Jews," was scrawled at the entrance to a mosque in the village.
In addition, local residents told the Judea and Samaria District Police that the shoe rack at the entrance to the mosque smelled of an inflammable material.
In response, the Tag Meir Forum, an NGO that fights hate crimes and racism, said in a statement that the vandalism was "Jewish terrorism."
"The mosque desecration in Deir Dibwan must be condemned," the NGO said. "What begins with desecration of prayer houses ends with the desecration of human lives. The Israeli government must put an end to this Jewish terrorism."
Last week, three vehicles were vandalized in the Palestinian village of Al-Lubban al-Gharbi near Ramallah in the West Bank. Malicious graffiti and the Star of David were sprayed on the vehicles there, and their tires were punctured.
Local residents said they had spotted the perpetrators and began to give chas. They failed, however, to capture them.
In January, five Israeli teenagers were arrested as part of a police investigation into Jewish terrorism on suspicion of causing the death of a Palestinian woman by hurling stones at the vehicle she was traveling in the West Bank in October.
One of the teenagers was charged with manslaughter after his DNA was found on the rock that hit and killed Aisha al-Rawbi near the Tapuach junction.
The 16-year-old youth from the Mateh Binyamin area was also charged with throwing a stone at a vehicle under aggravated circumstances as an act of terror, and intentional vandalism of a vehicle as an act of terror.
