שמע ישראל ה' א-לוהינו ה' אחד

I wonder who did this (click on the pic to enlarge):

As you can see, along with some typical-far-out graffiti and something written in Arabic, someone wrote the "Shema" (Hear O Israel, the LORD is our God, the LORD is one) on the wall of this building.

I wonder if the person who wrote that realizes that the Torah is anti graffiti . You are not allowed to damage someone else's property! This is of course assuming that the owner of the building did not write that on the wall.

Yes the Torah prohibits us from damaging property, but is this graffiti different from Na Nach Nachman which is painted gratified on buildings all over the country.

I assume that the person that painted this thought he was making a positive contribution, as do the Na Na Chasidim. Amazing how the Yetzer Haroah is able to convince us that an Avaira is really a Mitzva.
