Now this is real hate and bigotry. The overwhelming majority of “hate crimes” are anti-Jewish, but the cowed world instead handwrings and self-flagellates over “anti-Muslim hate crime” [hoaxes].
President Obama watched the Islamic genocide of millions of Christians and religious minorities in Syria and Iraq, but he condemned ….Israel at the UN.
Santa Monica Synagogue Smeared with Feces in Attack on Chanukah
Joel Pollak, Breibart, December 25, 2016 (thanks to Van):
SANTA MONICA, California — A local synagogue entrance was smeared with feces and food in an apparent antisemitic attack on the first night of Chanukah on Saturday night.
Congregants arriving for prayers on Sunday morning at the Living Torah Center, a synagogue affiliated with the Orthodox Chabad movement, were shocked by the vandalism, which one of the rabbis cleaned as best he could before services.
Some feces remained lodged in the upper corner of the building’s facade, and marred a window facing Wilshire Boulevard.
Rabbi Boruch Rabinowitz told Breitbart News that the attack was not random. Assistant Rabbi Dovid Tenenbaum, who serves as a chaplain with the local police department, called in a report.
The synagogue may have attracted additional attention because of the menorah lit in the window. Jewish law dictates that the Chanukah menorah be placed in a window facing the outside world in order to publicize the holiday.
The “Festival of Lights” celebrates the successful Jewish revolt against Seleucid rule in Israel in 165 B.C., and the discovery of oil in the Holy Temple that was only sufficient for one day but burned, miraculously, for eight instead.
The attack on the synagogue was the second antisemitic incident there in recent weeks. In November, a black man burst into services, gave the Hitler salute, shouted “Heil Hitler,” and made a machine-gun motion with his hands before fleeing on foot.
Santa Monica is a predominantly liberal, Democratic city, surrounded on three sides by Los Angeles, and takes pride in an image of tolerance.
