Los Angeles Synagogue Vandalized With 'Free Palestine,' 'F-- Israel' Graffiti

A synagogue in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles was vandalized on May 30 with graffiti stating “free Palestine” and “f— Israel.”

Lisa Daftari, founder and editor of the foreign policy news outlet The Foreign Desk, first reported on the graffiti on social media.

“Synagogue Congregation Beth El on Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles vandalized… Tell me this ugly hatred is still about #BLM or #GeorgeFloyd?!” she tweeted.

Jewish groups condemned the graffiti.

2. It was only a matter of time.

Demonstrates how some really are simply taking advantage of a tragic situation to advance their own agendas with no respect.

3. I feel somewhat like I'm in prison...

... with different gangs demanding that I join one or the other.

The major players all seem pretty crazy lately, so I'll just remain in isolation.

5. the riots aren't about George Floyd

They are an expression of hate.

Hatred of police by those who feel oppressed by them, hatred of businesses/success by those at the economic bottom, and every other grievance that has festered.

4. Reminds me of the protests against war in Iraq and other things

which always seemed to end up with or full of "fuck israel" crap.

6. Unfortunately, I'm Unsurprised

We already knew there were loads of provocateurs in these protests.
This is more evidence.

7. The eternal scapegoat

always ends up with an honorable mention. It doesn’t matter what the situation. Burning an Israeli flag, spraying graffiti on a synogogue, desecrating gravestones always manages to work its way into the day.

I am also unsurprised.

8. I am not surprised at all, someone at one of the first peaceful

Demonstrations in was dressed in a plo uniform. I was wondering how long it would take for something like this.

9. Not surprisingly this thread will sink like a rock.

You should have lied and said the headline was the opposite and it would have 10 million replies by now.

10. And this is why me and my family are armed, always.

I decided long ago I am comfortable with being a target, but I will never be a victim. "Never again" is a call to action.

11. On a twitter thread about this the first first comment finds

a way to justify it.

Of course.

12. Of course.

When it comes to anti-Semitism, it isn't "Never Again" but rather "Never fails".

13. I'm going to keep kicking this thread.

It’ll serve as Yet Another Example Of How The Jews Don’t Matter.

18. You might be unaware but

Jews are always targets.

They are just ignored by the right and the left unless they are useful to some other cause or as a prop.

19. I think I'm aware. That's what I mean by it being a false flag.

It could just be the Jews being used as a prop by rightwing extremists to discredit the left. I hope what I'm saying is clear there.
