A right-wing Israeli activist turned herself into the police for vandalizing the headquarters of the European Union (EU) delegation in Israel with anti-EU graffiti, according to Haaretz.

Sheffi Paz, known in the country for her opposition to African migrants to Israel, documented herself and a confederate spray-painting “EU get out” and “German money kill [sic] Jews” on the building, according to the publication.

No staffers at the office in the city of Ramat Gan were present at the time of the vandalism, a spokesperson for the embassy told Haaretz. “This incident aiming to intimidate the EU and its personnel is deplorable and should be condemned,” the spokesperson added.

Foreign Minister Yisrael Katz added in a tweet “I am appalled by and condemn the disgraceful vandalism of the EU Mission in Israel. Israel is committed to maintaining the security of all diplomatic missions. The Israeli police are investigating the case, and I expect the culprits will be swiftly brought to justice."

Austrian ambassador to Israel Martin Weiss also responded to the incident, calling it “deplorable” and adding “in spite of all innovation, the pill against bigotry & stupidity hasn’t been invented yet.”
