Israeli Memorial for Terror Victim Defaced With Swastika and PLO Flag (VIDEO)
A swastika was painted overnight on the monument erected in memory of Rabbi Meir Chai, who was killed in a terrorist attack in 2009 between Einav and Shavei Shomron in the West Bank, Israel’s 0404 News reports.
The popular news website decried the lack of coverage of the hate crime, stating that no other news source or any public official or individual had mentioned anything about the attack, which saw the daubing of a large black swastika and a Palestinian flag on the monument. The attack also included the desecration of an Israeli flag that the perpetrators – presumed to be Palestinian Arabs – took the time to remove from its place.
Chai, a father of seven, was killed when Fatah gunmen opened fire on his vehicle as he traveled in the area of the monument. His killers were tracked down within 48 hours and were killed in a shootout with IDF forces.
