Jewish suspects arrested over swastika graffiti on synagogues


Police believe two teenagers were behind paint attacks in Petah Tikva

Times of Israel

Police said Sunday that they had arrested two teenagers on suspicion of daubing swastikas on two synagogues in the central town of Petah Tikva.

A police source confirmed to The Times of Israel that the suspects, 17, from Petah Tikva and Haifa, are both Jewish.

On June 3, police received a report that a swastika had been sprayed on the walls of a synagogue on Sokolov Street in Petah Tikva, and another synagogue on Usishkin Street in the city, police said in a statement.

An investigation was opened that led to the arrests of the two minors. The investigation is continuing, police said.

In April police launched an investigation after Nazi images appeared as screensavers on computers in a school in Petah Tikva.

Several students were detained by police after a complaint was filed about two memes of Hitler and concentration camps which appeared on the computer network of the high school.

A police spokesperson said at the time that “it appears that a minor, a student of the educational institution, did some work on a computer in one of the classes, in which he created a presentation with Nazi content.”

Police have investigated several incidents of swastikas spray-painted in various locations in the city in the past few months.

It was not clear if the two 17-year-old suspects were connected to previous incidents of swastika graffiti.

    Swastika originated in 2000BC, is an article of faith and symbol of auspiciousness for 1 Bil Hindus, 550 mil Buddhist, 4.2 mil Jains and 20 mil other sects in Europe & China. That is 1.8 Bil people out of the total 7.4 Bil world population. US has 2.25 mil Hindus, 1.3 mil Buddhist and 125,000 Jains. Hinduism is the 4th largest religion in USA. Symbols have been abused throughout history and hence the importance of explaining people their true origin lies with the present generation. It is high time people in USA rather all over the world must educate themselves about Swastika and must stop calling Nazi Logo or similar graffiti a Swastika. They must respect the religious believes of 1.8 Bil people around the world. The believers of Swastika must be allowed to publicly display Swastika without fear and intimidation. Especially we can not ignore some of the Jews and Jewish organizations that is capitalizing on Nazi logo or similar graffiti by calling it Swastika for material benefits. In New Jersey USA under this hoax they have recived almost $10 mil from DHS.

    It seems Judea, Inc. makes a habit of using ‘minors’ to perform these acts of vandalism and threats so that they will not be jailed and receive little or no punishment.
