“Every ‘price tag’ act is immoral and un-Jewish. A small group, which we have yet to catch, is trying to light the Middle East on fire and harm the efforts we’re making to create stability and good, neighborly relations with Arabs,” Bennett said, theJerusalem Post reported.

Bennett’s statement comes after it was reported that 28 cars in the Arab-Israeli town of Abu Ghosh had their tires slashed, in addition to the appearance of graffiti saying in Hebrew, “Arabs go home.”
