Palmer Murder Memorial Marker Vandalized


A Hebrew-language sign marking the spot where Asher and Yonatan Palmer were murdered, the Tatzpit documentary arm of the Legal Forum for the Land of Israel reported on Sunday. Arabic was spray painted over the Hebrew and glued to the sign was an apparent picture of one of the 477 terrorists released last week in exchange for soldier Gilad Shalit.

The Palmers were killed when Arabs threw a stone threw the window of their car, last month, as they made their way from Kiryat Arba' to Jerusalem. Five Arabs were arrested for causing the crash and taking Asher Palmer's self-defense pistol.
