Who Tore Up The Cemetery?
We feel it will be either kids who wanted some fun or some of those anti-Israel, anti-Zionist haters who we have seen at the protesters. Yes, that is far different from what we are hearing but there is an undercurrent in the political atmosphere which is not pretty nor positive toward Jews and Israel.
Our hope is that the damage was done by kids for if it is not, this is a sad day in America.
Police are still investigating whether the incident was a hate crime, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
Anita Feigenbaum, executive director of the cemetery, told a New York Times reporter she doubts the crime was the work of kids.
Missouri Governor Eric Greitens, who is Jewish, condemned the attack on Facebook. “Today, Missouri witnessed a despicable act of what appears to be anti-Semitic vandalism at Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery,” he wrote.
