Athens -Graffiti
scrawled on the Holocaust memorial in Athens included threats against the
Jewish community.

 

Police
have opened an investigation into Friday’s vandalism, according to Victor
Eliezer, the secretary general of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in
Greece.

 

The
graffiti included a purported quote from the Talmud saying that Jews who
convert should be put to death and threats that the synagogue in Athens would
be destroyed.

 

“Regretfully, 70 years after the end of
World War II, which left millions of victims of bigotry, racism, Nazism and
anti-Semitism behind, there are people beyond redemption aiming at terrorizing
us by molesting the memory of our brothers, victims of the Holocaust,” said a
statement from the Jewish community issued Monday.

 

“They will not succeed in intimidating us,”
the statement said.

 

The wording of slogans is as follows:

“Paragraph X-2 of hilkoth akum in the Talmud states, it is proper to kill
Jews who have been baptized

Otherwise we shall destroy the synagogue for you”.
