“Jesus is a monkey” and other offensive epithets were found spray-painted on the walls of a Catholic monastery near Beit Shemesh, JTA reports. The graffiti included other anti-Christian and anti-American slurs, including “America is Nazi Germany” and “Price Tag—Peace Agreement.” Tires of nearby cars were slashed as well.

Israeli leaders from across the political spectrum have condemned the vandalism, which was discovered by monks on Tuesday morning. Jerusalem police are currently investigating the incident and looking for suspects.
