Police in San Antonio, Texas are investigating an extensive case of antisemitic vandalism in which graffiti was found spray-painted on more than 30 homes and vehicles in a predominately Jewish community, the San Antonio Express-News reported.

Members of the area’s Rodfei Sholom Congregation discovered the vandalism on Wednesday in the area around the synagogue after they finished morning prayers. The graffiti included images of swastikas, “KKK” lettering and other hateful slurs.

One vehicle had the word “Jew” spray-painted on it and a large rock thrown through the driver-side window.

“(We are) outraged that in this day and age there are people who still live in their own minds and own worlds where it seems to be okay to hate people based on their religion,” said Howard Feinberg, a board member at the congregation.

    Ah yes, that bastion of liberal tolerance brought to you by the Castro twins, RINO Joe Straus, and the Democratic Party of Texas. Is there any way we can give it back to Mexico, maybe with a 10′ easement and an electrified fence on each side of a dirt road?

    Every Jew, who traces his Roots to the Holyland, it is time to remember your adage “if i forget you Jerusalem”….It is time to start packing. Every year,whenever i have made a Pilgrim to the Holyland, i feel like i should stay there and feel even the very durst of that land, for to me it is holy. Times i do not even understand how ppl can be so absent of God to make Jerusalem another Sodom and yet they are Jews and we Gentiles fear and reverence the awesomeness of the Spirit of Hashem that pervades that City. May God open your eyes to see, ears to hear, and be attent to the wooing and callings of your good Lord. Blessed is He that cometh in the Name of Yeshua.

    But if it would be of an ethnicity, the police would be all over the place find the perps and blaming us as the cause, no matter what. “Cleaning up and moving on” is just like they did in the pograms and ghettos in Europe. More than that is needed; not just turning the cheek.

    • I believe that this is all contrived by a subversive group that is trying to stir up racial and ethnic hatred in the United States. A known thug attacks a cop and gets whacked and an instant mob shows up to create havoc that is still continuing.
      That crazy kid killed 9 people in church. All of a sudden the Confederate Battle Flag is bad ju ju.
      Of course the Yankees have been telling lies about the War of Northern Aggression for over 150 years. Now since this latest attack on my Southern Heritage, Several Confederate Monuments have been damaged. A Negro Lawyer took the Confederate Flags off graves of Soldiers in Alabama. Thankfully no one has retaliated by defacing MLK monuments.
      I just hope that they do not start pogroms on either one of us. I wonder if they would put us in the same ghetto. Southerners on one side of the street Hebrew people on the other.
      This is all out of the communist play book on how to create havoc and conquer a country. First you get every one to hate one another, then you move in. It is all misdirection,like a magician, so that we are distracted by the left hand and cannot see what the right hand is doing.
      Good Night Chesty Puller Where Ever Your Are and Semper Fi.

    however much the Prime Minister calls his brothers and sisters home, you still dilly dally to go home.Wait, your prophet said, Hashem will send fishermen with”hooks”to fish fish you out, cause you will not willingly and voluntarily make your godly Aliyah to the land of your forefathers.I am a gentile christian, but a Bible Reader and i warn you not as a prophet,because am not one, that what you are witnessing in San Antonio is just the beginning of what the Jewish Community is going to witness in the coming days in America especially if the Iran Deal is not passed by Congress. The evil spirit of Islam which pervades the president’s mind, and which is going to rule over the USA is going to rend havoc more and more in the coming days and years before the Rapture takes place and into the Great Tribulation. WATCH.

  • And they will not catch anyone as they are just like RATS, afraid to come out openly, plain cowards.

    In San Antonio this means it was done by either Mexican-American or just Mexican leftists, Texas leftists, muslim college students, or some combination of those groups. After 25 years in Texas I can honestly report that the only Jew-hatred I encountered there was from Mexicans, Central Americans, Blacks, muslims, and idiot Texas leftists.

    • shloime

      i can’t see any one of those groups writing “kkk” on anything.

      texas is a big place – maybe you missed a few antisemites.

    • i believe a lot of muslims who live in the u.s.a. are behind it. it never was so bad at schools and now its all over the country and europe. there country gives them money to cause all this trouble.most all americans are good people.so we should look for people who are not americans or just hate america ,americans leftist

    Cleaning up and moving on ? Wow that’s a tough take no prisoners response to Anti Semitism. My response would be put a fund together, hire private detectives and locate the asswipes that did the damage then arrange for some dental and orthopedic appointments for them. Yeah Yeah violence never solves anything..Except with Anti Semites.. It is the only message that they understand
