Monkey business

I read an article today about an act of vandalism in Israel against a christian monastery.  The text in Hebrew spray painted on the wall translates to "Jesus is a monkey"

Obviously vandalism is a dick move either way, but I have to wonder if this is a legitimate insult or simply a reference to the "restored" fresco painting in Spain known as ecce homo.  Where Jesus in his new poorly restored visage looks very ape-like.

Maybe not.. but it's an alternate plausible explanation.
