The park manager, Oshra Gabay, arrived at work Tuesday to discover the swastikas, along with offensive terms such as whores, spray-painted on a sign along the entrance path to the park, near Tel Sheva. Gabay called the police, who sent a forensic investigation unit.
I arrived at the site at about 8 o'clock. At the beginning of the entrance path to the park is a Public Works Authority sign that directs people to the site. I saw that swastikas, with a few other curse words, had been scrawled on it in white spray paint, Gabay said. This is a World Heritage Site. Tourists and students come here every day.
