My anonymous Israeli source has provided me this photo of settler youth outside a mosque, caught in the act of painting insults to Mohammed.

UPDATE: Someone has claimed that the photo above is not of settler youth defacing a mosque but rather helping clean it. Here’s their “proof.”
A Jerusalem mosque that was torched last week in a “price tag” operation turned into a platform for religious and secular teens who wished to demonstrate their aversion to the recent wave of attacks on Muslim holy sites. Fifteen students from the Eitan pre-military school in Ma’ale Adumim arrived at desecrated mosque Monday on a mission to clean up the hate graffiti that remained on its walls.
“This is not a political act,” the teens stressed. “There has never been a reality in which Jews defaced prayer houses, and we won’t allow it to happen now either.”
Yair Ansbacher, a rabbi teaching at the school, said that the activity was meant to show that the majority of settlers are against the hostile acts.
“There are many opinions at the school, including opinions that are very Right-leaning… but they all oppose violence against IDF troops and vandalism – especially vandalism against places of worship,” Ansbacher said.
“We are a small group of people who aim to right a wrong that was caused by another small group of people,” he added. “(…) We have no intention to clash with anyone, but we do intend to speak out against the radicalization taking place in Israeli society.”
The rabbi asserted that the “price tag” operations create a dangerous gap within Israeli society.
“This is not the true face of Judaism,” he said. “We are erasing these slogans with hopes of erasing this stain.”
MK Lia Shemtov (Yisrael Beiteinu) lauded the students’ actions, and claimed that they are representative of the settler youth.
“Over the past few weeks there has been lame attempt to label all settlers as violent vandals, which is in fact not true,” she said, noting that the highest rates of IDF enlistment often register in the settlements.
Shemtov condemned the recent “price tag” acts, saying that the vandals will be held responsible.
But Ynet is not a valid source. Sure, they have interviewed me in the past, but that does not mean I need to acknowledge them as an accurate news provider. In fact, it is precisely because they do not provide accurate news that they felt the need to consult me.

UPDATE: Someone else has pointed to this Ma’an News report which mentions that a young Zionist man went and helped repair a vandalized mosque. I posit that his “act of kindness” was staged. In fact, the man in question is a Mossad agent. I know it to be true. I feel it in my bones.
UPDATE: Did I mention that the Mossad were behind the death of Kim Jong Il?
