Neo-Nazis Defecate in Synagogue in Wales; Jewish Soldiers Defecate in Offices, Mosques in Palestine

IAP News - July 14, 2002 - It seems there is more in common than many people think between Israeli soldiers tormenting Palestinians in the West Bank and Neo-Nazis in Europe vandalizing Jewish synagogues and cemeteries.

On Sunday, the right-wing Israeli paper, the Jerusalem Post, reported that that three days ago hooligans believed to be neo-Nazis left excrement inside a synagogue in the Welsh city of Swansea.

The paper also reported that the neo-Nazis drew a swastika at the Synagogue, which serves a dwindling community of 70 mostly elderly people.

The hooligans also reportedly tore old Torah scrolls, which the Chairman of the Synagogue Harry Sherman said would be difficult to repair.

Ironically, Israeli soldiers rampaging through Palestinian population centers have been indulging in far more disgusting acts against Palestinian mosques and Christian Churches in Palestine.

And unlike the isolated anti-Jewish incidents, Israeli soldiers' wanton acts, described by a former British official as an "affront to civilization," are supported and staunchly defended by most Israelis and Jews around the world.

According to Israeli sources, Jewish extremists have recently been desecrating two mosques in the Khadera area, writing graffiti on their outer walls reading, "Kahana was right, death to the Arabs"

A third mosque, known as the Ein-Hud Mosque, was used by Jews, with government approval, as a bar and, using the words of a local Muslim official, a "place where vice is done."

A few months ago, the noted Israeli journalist Amira Hass described the wanton rampage of Israeli soldiers in Ramallah in April.

She described what the soldiers did and left at the Palestinian ministry of culture.

"In every room of the various departments, literature, film, culture for children and youth books, discs, pamphlets and documents were piled up, soiled with urine and excrement," said Hass in her report, published in Ha'aretz on 7 May.

"There are two toilets on every floor, but the soldiers urinated and defecated everywhere else in the building, in several rooms of which they had lived for about a month. They did their business on the floors, in emptied flowerpots, even in drawers they had pulled out of desks."

"Someone even managed to defecate into a photocopier."

And like the Nazis who usually leave the swastika sign on the walls or forefronts of vandalized synagogues, the Israeli soldiers then left their own corresponding symbols in Ramallah.

"Here and there was the candelabrum symbols of Israel, stars of David, praises for the Jerusalem Betar soccer team."
