JNS.org – A menorah monument in the Colombia’s capital, Bogotá, was vandalized with a swastika.

The country’s foreign ministry described the graffiti on the monument on Israel State Avenue as exemplifying “intolerance and hate.”

The vandalism consisted of an orange-painted swastika on the base of the monument and the engraved word “Israel,” crossed out in orange paint.

Israel’s ambassador to the South American country, Christian Cantor, tweeted a picture of the incident and expressed appreciation to the Colombian government for condemning the symbols.
