Synagogue attacked and vandalised

This is a terrible story. Now if this attack had been committed by Muslims, Charles Johnson would be all over this like bad cologne. Unfortunately for Charles, a golden opportunity to spread his unique brand of Islamophobia has been dashed by the revelation that the culprits of this senseless, violent and disgusting attack were Jewish.

AN orthodox Jewish synagogue in Stamford Hill has been attacked and vandalised - not by anti-semetic thugs, but by fellow Jews who regard its leaders' outspoken condemnation of Israel as a betrayal.


Windows at the synagogue in Alkham Road were smashed after bottles were hurled at them last Thursday evening and the front of the building was covered with red spray paint.

The synagogue belongs to Neturei Karta, an ultra-orthodox sect opposed to the Zionist political movement that established the state of Israel as a national homeland for Jews.
