Anti-Semitic incidents in Europe, South America

(JNS.org) Several attacks against Jews and Jewish sites were reported in South America and Europe last week. In Buenos Aires, Argentina, vandals desecrated a monument in a Jewish area with graffiti that read “kill Jews.” In Cordova, Argentina, a swastika was drawn on the wall of a rabbi’s home. Local officials said the vandalism was part of a larger pattern of similar anti-Semitic incidents taking place in the city on a weekly basis. In Berlin, Germany, five youths attacked an Israeli woman who was heard speaking Hebrew on the phone. The group grabbed her phone and stole it after calling her an “Israeli.” In Lisbon, Portugal, vandals drew the word “Ebola” on a memorial for a massacre that took place in 1506, Israel National News reported. The memorial is considered one of the most significant Jewish landmarks in the country.
