Chairman Naftali Bennett of Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home-New National Religious Party) responded, Tuesday morning, to the puncturing of tires and graffiti in the Judean Hills Arab community of Abu-Ghosh, west of Jerusalem, by saying, "Price tag - an immoral act not Jewish act.... There's a small group of those who are sowing evil who want to destroy any chance of good neighborly life between Arabs and Jews in our country. A group which puts tools in the hands of our enemies around the world to blacken our faces. We will not allow them to succeed."
"Price tag" refers to vandalism with the Hebrew words for "price tag" spray-painted near by, ostensibly against Arab and leftist targets in response to acts or threats against Jewish communities in Judea and Samaria (Shomron). Those specific words were not spray painted at the scene in this instance, according to reports.
