(Newser) – Three ultra-Orthodox Jewish people have been arrested for spraying hate graffiti on Israel's national Holocaust memorial and two army memorials, reports the AP. Police said the suspects have confessed. Police had suspected ultra-Orthodox Jews were behind the vandalism, which occurred earlier this month, when slogans such as "Hitler, thank you for the Holocaust" were scrawled at 10 locations around the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. The suspects are scheduled to appear in court today.
