The Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Monday extended by four days the arrest of two teenage girls suspected of a “price-tag” vandalism act against the Monastery of the Cross in Jerusalem in December.
One of the girls is the 16-year-old who spat at Arab Israeli MK Ahmed Tibi at a political event at Bar Ilan University.
Police suspect the teenagers of spraying Hebrew graffiti on a wall of the Monastery of the Cross, including the slogans “price tag,” “Happy Hannukah, victory for the Maccabees” and “Jesus — son of a whore.” The offenders also slashed the tires of three cars in the monastery’s parking lot.
The girl later said of the spitting incident that the parliamentarian should thank her, and that he deserves worse – specifically a death sentence. She also said she thought that he should be kicked out of the Knesset rather than given a stage from which to speak.
