BREAKING NEWS: Jerusalem Synagogue Defaced with Crosses

It was reported that black crosses had been spray painted on an Iranian synagogue Koresh in the Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem.


Vandalism against Jewish institutions is not suprising in Jerusalem’s seamline neighborhoods where Jews lives near Arabs.  This attack is a bit of a shock, because Katamon is fairly central.  The use of crosses is either a ploy by Arab vandals or a troubling development within the broader Christian Israeli community.

Jerusalem police have opened an investigation into the incident and are searching for suspects.
