Palestinian car torched in Jerusalem hate crime

World Bulletin / News Desk

A Palestinian car in east Jerusalem was torched and racist slogans were scrawled on it early Sunday, police said, in what bore the hallmarks of a Jewish extremist hate attack.

Police said the incident took place in Umm Tuba, with perpetrators writing "Death to Arabs" on the car and "administrative revenge" next to the vehicle owner's home.

Sunday's incident shared similarities with previous attacks referred to as "price tag" attacks, a euphemism for Jewish nationalist-motivated hate crimes that generally target Palestinian or Arab Israeli property, but have also hit Christian and Muslim places of worship.

Suspected Jewish extremists on July 31 torched a Palestinian home in West Bank village Duma, killing an 18-month-old boy and fatally injuring his parents, following which Israeli authorities cracked down on Israeli extremists, with "price tag" attacks somewhat abating since.
