Rioters in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles set a synagogue on fire late Saturday night after vandalizing it with anti-Semitic hate graffiti (‘Free Palestine’ and ‘Fuck Israel’) earlier in the day. This incident is more evidence that Islam-connected groups are behind recent US riots.
Jewish Journal (h/t Gateway Pundit) American Jewish Committee Los Angeles Regional Director Richard S. Hirschhaut said in a statement to the Journal, “It is deplorable that certain protestors in Los Angeles today resorted to violence and vandalism. Sadly, their destructive opportunism included the defacing of Congregation Beth Israel, one of the oldest synagogues in Los Angeles and the spiritual home to many Holocaust survivors over the years.
The epithets scrawled on the synagogue wall do nothing to advance the cause of peace or justice, here or abroad.”
Liora Rez, director of the Stop Anti-Semitism watchdog, said in a statement to the Journal, “Once again we see vile anti-Semitism being disguised as activism. To vandalize a synagogue during this horrific time does nothing but further divide a broken country.”
And by nightfall, the synagogue was set on fire.
The riots around the US are not random events. Based on prior rallies, protests and riots, these riots are backed by domestic terrorists, Islamic extremists and others related to the Democrat party.
