Graffiti reading “enough with assimilation” and “death to Arabs” found on walls of capital’s Max Rayne Hand in Hand school; authorities investigating incident.
The Max Rayne Hand in Hand School, which serves more than 600 Arab and Jewish pupils from throughout Jerusalem in the capital’s Pat neighborhood, went up in flames on Saturday night.
Firefighters were working to prevent its spread to the rest of the school’s facilities as they brought the fire under control.
An initial police investigation showed signs that the fire was set intentionally from inside the school. The source of the blaze was found to be at the building’s preschool. With classes from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade, it is the largest Arab-Jewish cultural institution in Israel.
Hebrew graffiti was found on the school’s walls, with slogans such as “You can’t coexist with a cancer,” “Kahane was right,” “Enough with assimilation” and “Death to Arabs.”
