Nine months after the Trappist monastery in Latrun was vandalized in a suspected price-tag attack in November 2012, a 22-year-old resident of the haredi town of Bnei Brak was arrested on Sunday on suspicion of involvement. The suspect is accused of vandalizing property, arson, conspiracy to commit a crime and obstruction of justice. He is suspected of setting the monastery door on fire and spray painting derogatory slogans on the walls of the building like "Jesus is a monkey" alongside the names of various Jewish outposts in Judea and Samaria.
The suspect arrived in court for extension of remand wearing a T-shirt that said: "Jews, come on, let's win." The suspect is a known right-wing activist who operated in Judea and Samaria before relocating to Bnei Brak as a result of a restraining order.
