Neo-Nazis Desecrate Synagogue in Petakh Tikvah

Deutsche Presse-Agentur reports,

Worshippers who arrived at the Great Beit Ya’akov Synagogue for morning prayers earlier this month were shocked to find swastikas spray-painted all over the floors and walls of the more than 100-year-old building.
The word “Hitler” was also painted on the ark – the cupboard where the Torah scrolls are kept – and more swastikas were scrawled in several prayer books.
The synagogue is located not in Milan, where some 40 Jewish tomb stones were knocked over on Monday night. Nor is it in the Siberian town of Omsk, where a Jewish graveyard was desecrated last month, or Paris, where vandals broke into a synagogue and threw religious objects to the ground in March.
This particular synagogue is in the central Israeli town of Petah Tiqwa, providing Israelis with a painful reminder that anti-Semitism and neo-Nazism exist not only in Europe, but also in their own country.

  1. Throw these feces back in the toilet they were flushed from. And change the right of return while you’re at it. Liberal Jews or not.

  2. If you examine the RoR policy that favored Soviets with “One Jewish Grandmother” over countless true-blue Jews across the world… you’d see it’s not so mind-boggling at all. The chickens are simply coming home to roost, and Orthodox (and other religious) Jews suffer in the process.
