JERUSALEM (Reuters) — A Jerusalem monastery, built on the spot where tradition holds the tree from which Jesus’s cross was made, was defaced with graffiti bearing the hallmarks of Jewish extremists, police said on Tuesday.

“Death to Christians” was daubed in Hebrew on the outer walls of the Monastery of the Cross, an 11th-century fortress-like holy site situated in a valley overlooked by Israel’s parliament.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the words “Price Tag” were also painted overnight by the vandals, who damaged two cars parked outside the monastery in the rare attack on a Christian shrine in Jerusalem.

The slogan, used by Jewish settlers in vandalism attacks on mosques and Palestinian homes in the West Bank, refers to the retribution they say they will exact for any attempt by the Israeli government to curb settlement in the territory.

“I am a priest and I forgive,” Father Claudio of the monastery, which is administered by the Greek Orthodox church, told Reuters.

Rosenfeld said police had opened an investigation.

In December, Jewish extremists torched a mosque in Jerusalem and sprayed the Star of David, “price tag,” “Muhammad is a pig” and “A good Arab is a dead Arab” in Hebrew on the ancient building’s walls.
