The Y Net News (Israeli) website reports today (June 9, 2010) that vandals sprayed hate messages last night on a mosque in the northern Israeli village of Ibtin which read: "Up for demolition," "Price tag," and "War will break out in Judea and Samaria."
Star of David signs were also sprayed on the building. Ibtin police believe that residents of the nearby community of Rechasim were behind the act.
Police have launched an investigation, but no suspects have been arrested yet.
Until recently, relations between Ibtin and Rechasim residents had been good; however, new residents have settled in the area in recent years, and the state of calm has been broken.
