Pro-Terrorist Mob Attacks Synagogue in Chavez’s Venezuela

Just another day in the life of Jews living in Leftist dictatorships

The Venezuelan Confederation of Israelite Associations said in a statement that the demonstrators hurled fireworks inside the synagogue, disrupting activities and causing panic. The organization said the unidentified people shouted anti-Semitic slogans condemning Jews for the violence in the Middle East.

The organization called on the government to guarantee security at places of worship.

In 2009, a group of intruders broke into the same synagogue, shattering religious objects, spray-painting anti-Semitic slogans and stealing a computer database with names and addresses of Jews. Authorities later arrested 11 people, including eight police officers, for alleged involvement. Chavez condemned that attack.

    So what if Chavez condemned the attack; its a safe bet that he's not losing any sleep over it, either. It will be interesting to see what happens to the perps. Attacks on Jews are fairly common in central and south America; in 1978 our old lefty friends, the Sandinistas, burned Managua's only synagogue to the ground, and chased the Jews out of the city.

    FACT – Even if Arafat and his fellow Arab "Palestinians" were given
    the beautiful land of Switzerland, they'd turn it into a sewer!

    READ MY LIPS
    "There is No "Islam / Jewish, – Peace" Process!"

    The teachings of the Qur'an – & those of God's Holy Bible are mutually exclusive!

    Stylish looking crowd, I wonder if any of them have a job aside from being paid to demonstrate
    and take part in criminal behavior. Chavez is up to his rotten neck in Jihadist collusion and
    what chance do Jews have to live peacefully with thugs in power that coddle Islamist fiends.
    Jews should only live in Nations that have the power of law that is enforced and dependable
    and neighbors that are sensible enough to value enriching Jewish culture, family values
    and civic responsiveness……………….William

    "….including 8 police officers." Hmmm, how comforting.

    woooooooooooooooow. I never really imagined South America in general giving a whole lot of a __t about Jews one way or the other, but the fact that those brain dead idiots attacked a SYNAGOGUE, which is by no means representative of anything Israel (not like an embassy or anything), it's as though they're finding a proxy scapegoat and engaging in anti semitism because they assume the Jews of the area have jack and __t to do with what's going on in Gaza. Or something.
