Israel Police Challenge U.S. “Terror” Findings (AFP)

    Israeli police on Thursday challenged Washington’s inclusion of Jewish extremist attacks on Palestinians in a global terror report, saying such incidents could not be likened to militant attacks.

    For the first time, the State Department’s2013 Country Reports on Terrorism, publishedWednesday, included a reference to racist anti-Palestinian vandalism, known as “price tag” attacks.

    Israel Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said there “is vandalism with nationalistic motives but these are not nationalistic attacks on Palestinians.”

    “You cannot compare whatsoever between terrorist acts, the cold-blooded killing of Israelis, and…vandalism on that level.”

    Israel’s Minister of Communications Gilad Erdan castigated the U.S. State Department report on Thursday.

    He told Channel 10 TV: “We are not talking about acts of murder; this is graffiti. There is a difference between murder and destruction of property.”

    “We are taking these appalling acts very seriously,” he said. “These are immoral, criminal acts that damage the State of Israel.”
