'Death to the Jews' spray-painted on Brussels synagogue

October 4, 2012 18:35

THE HAGUE - Two unidentified vandals spray-painted anti-Semitic slogans on a Brussels synagogue on Tuesday.

Security cameras filmed two men spray-painting “death to the Jews” and “boom” on the wall of Beth Hillel synagogue in the Belgian capital. The footage was too blurry to be used to identify the vandals, according to a report by Le Vif, a Belgian daily.

The same synagogue sustained minor damage in January 2009 after unknown assailants threw a Molotov cocktail at the entrance.

Evelyne Huytebroeck, minister for the environment in the regional government of Belgium’s Brussels region, said the spraying of slogans “could only be the action of people from outside the region, in which tolerance prevails.”

Huytebroeck added that she hoped local elections “would not inflame the spirits.”
