MIAMI: Synagogue vandalized with Nazi swastikas and Hamas messages

2014072814065573169775Jewish vehicles are also being vandalized in Miami. For the second time in as many days, messages of hate targeted members of South Florida’s large Jewish community.

CBS  (h/t Grant B) Early Monday morning, spray painted swastikas and the word “Hamas” were discovered on the pillars in front of the Congregation Torah Ve’emunah, at 1000 NE 175th Street, in northeast Miami-Dade. A member of the community watch discovered the vandalism around 1 a.m.

On Saturday, a family who lives along Meridian Avenue in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood of Miami Beach found their cars had been vandalized as they left to attend a service at their synagogue. “They wrote “Hamas” on the back of the car window and they wrote “Jew,’” said Joshua, who didn’t want us to publish his last name.

The two vehicles were covered with eggs and smeared with cream cheese, but it’s the meaning behind the words that left many in the predominantly Jewish community concerned.
