Barkat Condemns Monastery Graffiti


Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat has condemned graffiti near a local monastery that included an insult to Christianity. The vandalism is believed to be part of the “price tag” phenomenon.

“We must not come to terms with these despicable, extremist incidents aimed at damaging co-existence in Jerusalem” Barkat declared. “They must be destroyed at the root.” Those responsible for the vandalism will be prosecuted harshly, he added.
