Above: “Apocalypse in Lilac, Capriccio”. Marc Chagall
employs one of his familiar motifs, an image of a crucified Jesus,
which he used as a metaphor for persecuted Jewry.
“Apocalypse” shows a naked Christ screaming at a Nazi storm trooper below the cross, who has a backwards swastika on his arm, a Hitler-like
mustache and a serpentine tail. Another small figure can be seen
crucified and a second being hanged, and a man appears to be poised to
stab a child. A damaged, upside-down clock falls from the sky.
Across the world today swastikas appear like metastatic tumors on the soul of humanity.
The Muslim nazis spraying graffiti on the ancient temple is understandable. These savages are compelled to deface that which is irrefutable and which stands as a rebuke to their violent ideology. But the money quote goes to the pathetic moral illness and asshattery of Avi Stern, the president of the Jewish temple in Edison, who actually said he “doesn’t think the attack was anti-Semitic since a church was also damaged” after the synagogue was defiled with the icon of Jewish extermination. The hate, in the case of Edison, was directed at Christian and Jews. (Hmmmmm, who can that be?)
I am not making it up. It takes a special kind of self hatred to provide cover for your enemies.
Swastikas painted on temple, church
OSHKOSH — link hat tip Hal
Black swastikas were found spray-painted on a Jewish temple and Methodist church in Oshkosh, and police say they’re still looking for suspects.
The damage was discovered Christmas Eve at B’Nai Israel Congregation and Algoma Methodist Church.
Avi Stern is the president of the Jewish temple. He says the swastika is a symbol of hate, but he doesn’t think the attack was anti-Semitic since a church was also damaged.
Police Sgt. Andrew Lecker says the vandalism could be considered a hate crime, which would enhance the range of penalties.
Most of the vandalism has been cleaned up, and Stern says the healing has already begun. He says he’s inspired that a number of strangers have called and e-mailed to pledge their support.
EDISON: And then there is this act of randomness:
group of Jews, in a rare visit to the ruins of an ancient synagogue in an Arab
village southwest of Hevron, was shocked to discover swastikas scrawled on the
walls by Arabs. Israel National News learned that the discovery was
made last Friday morning, the same day that Muslims in Samaria accused Jews of
setting fire to the second floor of a mosque in a village in
Swastika on ancient ruins The ruins of the ancient synagogue are in
Samoa, a village located in the southern Hevron Hills between Hevron and Be’er
Sheva. Samoa’s Arabs have been involved in terrorist attacks against Israel
since before the 1967 Six-Day War, and army-escorted public tours to the ruins
are rare, the last one having been organized eight years
The ruins were first discovered
in 1934. The synagogue dates back to the fourth century, and Jews apparently
abandoned it in the eighth century, during the beginning of Muslim rule. Muslims
have built a mosque adjacent to the ruins.Dr. Doron Sar-Avi, who teaches
history, geography and Biblical archaeology, told Israel National News
the swastikas were not on the walls when he last visited the ruins, with the
commander of the Hevron Brigade, two years ago.
He said he was surprised at
the defamation, particularly because the ruins have stayed intact despite fears
that they would be dismantled by Muslims in Samoa. Dr. Dar-Avi explained that
most ruins, such as those from the same period of time near Susiya (a
Jewish town in the southern Chevron hills), happen to be in Jewish
communities and are
not located in the middle of an Arab village.

altar and Holy Ark Dr. Sar-Avi speculated that one reason Arab have
not destroyed the ruins may be that the ruins may serve as supports for an
adjacent mosque. However, he also noted that several Arab homes in Samoa
include doorposts that stood in the ruins, including a depiction of
The synagogue that existed in ancient Samoa is significantly larger
than the more widely-known ancient synagogue in nearby Susiya, he added.
synagogues were built around the same time, and Jews abandoned them for unknown
reasons, possibly because of a declining economy, desert marauders or the Muslim
conquest. Whereas the mosaic floor, steps, some columns and the entrance to the
Susiya synagogue remain intact, little remains in Samoa except for the walls and
stones where the Holy Ark

UPDATE: More more more:
SACRAMENTO, CA – The new year is bringing an old message of hate. A
Sacramento synagogue was defaced with racist graffiti overnight.
Vandals tagged Kenesset Israel Torah Center on the 1100 block of
Morse Avenue. The word “Satan” and numbers “666” were spray-painted on the side
of the synagogue. A swastika and a profanity defaced a utility box on the
Rabbi Ian Paull Bailey said the tagging took place overnight.
It was not the first time the center has been targeted. In 1999 a
firebombing at its previous location forced the congregation to move.
Approximately one mile away on Northrup Avenue, five vehicles were
spray-painted with a Star of
number 6 and squiggly lines. A sign at the nearby Woodside East residential
complex was also tagged.
The Sacramento County Sheriff’s Department is investigating the
incidents and is asking the
assistance. Sgt. Bobby Davis said detectives will be looking into whether there
is a connection between the crimes.
News10 also checked a report that Congregation Beth Shalom on the
4700 block of El Camino Avenue was vandalized but that turned out to be
