Firefighting crews from the Jerusalem neighborhood of Har Homa were called at 3:00 am Sunday, after a car was found aflame in the Arab neighborhood of Umm Tuba. 

"Firefighters, under the direction of Sgt. Nir Abramowitz, controlled the car fire and prevented the fire from spreading into a brushfire to an adjacent building," the Jerusalem Fire Brigade spokesman said Sunday. 

Police added that perpetrators wrote "Death to Arabs" on the car and "administrative revenge" next to the vehicle owner's home.
