Now let’s see. There is a large, growing, and vocal group in England that is virulently anti-Semitic and sometimes violent. Could they have anything to do with the attacks on 100 synagogues since 2000? Could that at least be investigated? No: to do so would be “racism.”
From This Is London, with thanks to Andy:
The charred remains of priceless prayer books scattered on the floor are all that remain after arson attacks left two north London synagogues wrecked.
In Hendon, more than Â£250,000 of damage was done by vandals who broke into the UK headquarters of Jewish educational body Aish HaTorah. …
A day earlier, vandals smashed a CCTV camera at the South Tottenham Synagogue before breaking a window and throwing a burning rag inside. Many prayer books were incinerated – some more than 100 years old and others which were smuggled out of Germany and Poland by Jews fleeing the Nazis in the 1930s.
Rabbi Michael Biberfeld said his congregation mourned the loss of the priceless books. He said: “Some of them have never been reprinted after the Holocaust. The people who saved them from the Nazis in Germany and Poland after Kristallnacht in 1938 risked their lives. For them to be destroyed is a tragic end.” …
Although police are not linking the attacks they admit it is “unusual” for two synagogues to be targeted in such a short space of time. More than 100 British synagogues have been desecrated since September 2000.
