Hate graffiti sprayed on Jewish homes in Tel Aviv

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli police say vandals have spray painted hate graffiti on several Jewish houses in Jaffa, a mixed Israeli and Arab neighborhood of Tel Aviv.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said swastikas and "Death to Jews" were sprayed onto houses and shops early Wednesday. He said police have launched an investigation.

Israeli Jews and Arab Muslims and Christians generally coexist peacefully in the port city. Hate crimes there are rare.
