Israel must tackle anti-Palestinian hate crime with an "iron fist," a top minister said Monday, as police confirmed the arrests of seven minors over racist graffiti and spitting at a priest.The Israeli authorities are facing mounting pressure to rein in a spiraling wave of so-called "price tag" hate crimes by Jewish extremists targeting Palestinians, with new racist vandalism attacks being reported on an almost daily basis.Price tag is the euphemism for nationally-motivated hate crimes by Jewish extremists that predominantly target Palestinian property, but have also included attacks on other non-Jews as well as left-wing Israelis or the security forces.Last week, the U.S. State Department for the first time included mention of price tag attacks in its global report on terror, saying such incidents were "largely unprosecuted".
