Israeli settlers vandalized a mosque with Hebrew-language graffiti on Monday in the occupied West Bank village of Deir Dibwan near Ramallah.
Settlers also poured flammable material on the shoe rack placed at the entrance of the mosque.
Among the anti-Palestinian slogans were, “Here they incite to murder Jews” and “The Jewish nation lives,” as well as the Star of David symbol.
This kind of vandalism is often called a “price tag” – a term Israeli settlers and extremists use to describe sometimes lethal attacks on non-Jews and their property, especially Palestinians.
Yousef Idis, the Palestinian Authority’s religious affairs minister, condemned the settler attack.
“There are no longer safe places of worship in light of Israeli forces and settlers’ attacks and crimes [against the Palestinian people],” Idis said, according to Palestinian news agency WAFA.
Israeli police have opened an investigation into the suspected hate crime, Haaretz.
But data from the Israeli human rights group Yesh Din show that just three percent of Israeli police investigations of “ideologically motivated” crimes against Palestinians by Israeli civilians result in a conviction.
Increasingly, according to Yesh Din’s research, Palestinians do not even bother to report crimes against them to the Israeli police, given the effective impunity Israeli perpetrators enjoy.
