Authorities in the Samaria community of Emmanuel were shocked to discover an Arab "price tag" attack on Saturday night, after a bus stop was vandalized with hate graffiti. 

Palestinian Authority (PA) flags were flown at the stop, as well as a sign posted saying, "Israel is a terror state / Get out of our land." 

"This is a grave attack," Emmanuel Local Council officials stated to Arutz Sheva Sunday. "Apparently there are terrorists in the region - backed by leftist groups - who are trying to harm the natural balance of life [here] between Israelis and Arabs." 

"We call to launch an investigation over the incident and catch the perpetrators," they added. 

Leftist MKs consistently condemn "price tag" for giving Israel a bad image, both in local and international press. However, little to no press time is given to  numerous incidents of Arab "price tagging".

In addition, an Arutz Sheva report in January revealed that in at least some of the cases, anti-Arab "price tags" were being systematically staged by Arab activists.
