RAMALLAH, June 10 (JMCC) - Following a right-wing demonstration, vandals spray-painted threats on cars and buildings in Neve Shalom-Wahat Salam, a village where Palestinians and Israelis live together, reports Mondoweiss.

The attack, which took place Thursday night, included calls for death to Arabs, as shown in photos.

The rightist slashed tires and painted graffiti in Neve Shalom-Wahat al-Salam, and left cryptic messages to residents.

In the village parking lot, vandals slit tires on 14 cars and graffiti painted revenge, death to Arabs, and regards from Ulpana, according to Ynet News. Haaretz also reported the extremist defaced cars with the tag “[Meir] Kahane was right.”

Vandals also left threats on the town's elementary school, marking the School for Peace with revenge and regards from Havat Gilad, the name of an illegal settlement. The School for Peace is one of the few educational institutions in Israel that offers a bi-national curriculum and teaches Palestinian history to all of its students. The school's website boasts the community is comprised of Palestinians and Jews, citizens of Israel, who have chosen to create a shared community to challenge the existing structure of relations between Arabs and Jews and to seek more egalitarian models that can break down the inbuilt asymmetry in Israeli society as it is now.

Similar attacks have been dubbed price tag attacks because they are carried out in revenge after Israel has moved to limit settlers in the occupied West Bank.
