More Anti-Semitic Attacks in US

What has become a string of anti-Semitic attacks in the United States has stretched to Pennsylvania, Iowa, and New York. The Times of Israel reports on the recent acts of anti-Jewish hatred, including the desecration of dozens of graves in a Philadelphia cemetery:

Dozens of headstones were found toppled at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia on Sunday.

Police said that the incident at the city’s Mount Carmel Cemetery was an act of vandalism and have opened an investigation, according to a local ABC affiliate.

Police did not say whether they were treating the case as a possible hate crime.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon condemned the incident, writing on Twitter that the “Philadelphia Jewish cemetery desecration is shocking and a source of worry. Full confidence US authorities catch and punish culprits...”

In addition to the vandalism at the Jewish cemeteries, there were also instances of anti-Semitic vandalism at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and in a suburb of Buffalo, New York, over the past week...

As America witnesses this increase in anti-Semitic crimes, please stand with us and sign our statement of solidarity against hate.
