Great Synagogue of Petah Tikva desecrated

Thursday, May 04, 2006 | 
Perpetrators broke into Petah Tikva’s Great Synagogue on Thursday and desecrated it, drawing swastikas on the walls and on the Torah Scrolls. The name Hitler was also written on the doors of the synagogue, while other contents of the ark were thrown onto the floor. Every Jewish symbol was covered with the name Rammstein – a German heavy metal band associated with neo-Nazism spray-painted on them. Detectives found fingerprints and are investigating the incident. In 2005, the government opposed a proposal to revoke the citizenship of those who engaged in neo-Nazi activities.
