An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
If it weren’t for my friend, Rabbi Chaim, I would never have heard about this outrage!
An armed group vandalized Caracas’ oldest synagogue, shattering religious objects and spray-painting walls in what Jewish leaders called the worst attack ever on their community in Venezuela.
Two security guards were overpowered by about 15 people who ransacked the synagogue’s sanctuary and offices late Friday, leaving graffiti such as: “We don’t want murderers,” and “Jews, get out.”
I Googled ‘attack on Synagogue in Venezuela’, and got TWO hits. That’s it! Two! Why? Why hasn’t this been on the news? What? Doesn’t the MSM believe that such an attack warrants coverage?
Foreign Minister Nicolas Maduro condemned the attack and promised it would be investigated, while reiterating his government’s opposition to what he called Israel’s “criminal” government.
Investigated? I’m fairly sure there will only be a cursory ‘investigation’, if even that. I suppose that self defense is a crime in Venezuela? Well, I guess with Chavez in charge, the answer would be yes.
“We respect the Jewish people, but we ask respect for the people of Palestine and their right to life,” Maduro said in a ceremony called to welcome home two Venezuelan diplomats expelled from Israel this week.
Only the Palies have a ‘right to life’? I’m of the mind this was conducted by either strong supporters of the dictator, Hugo, or his pals, Islamonazis. Either way, it is an outrage. Any decent human being who would support such actions, should be condemned themselves.
