AP – CARACAS, Venezuela – About 50 people protested Israel’s airstrikes in the Gaza Strip outside the largest synagogue in Venezuela’s capital, and leaders of the country’s Jewish community called on the government to guarantee security at places of worship.
The Venezuelan Confederation of Israelite Associations said in a statement that demonstrators hurled fireworks inside the synagogue Thursday, disrupting activities and causing panic. The organization said the unidentified people shouted anti-Semitic slogans condemning Jews for the violence in the Middle East.
