Deri ‘Appalled’ by Abu Ghosh Graffiti


Shas head Aryeh Deri visited the Israeli Arab town of Abu Ghosh on Tuesday following an overnight attack by vandals. The attacks slashed the tires of 28 cars and spray-painted the words “Arabs out” on walls.

Deri began by visiting the local council building, where he and MK David Azoulay (Shas) met with local politicians, including local Shas activists. The hareidi-religious Shas party has won support from many Israeli Arabs due to policies including support for large families and a liberal fiscal platform.
