The Anti-Defamation League on Monday condemned the "despicable" removal of a Hannukiah in Moldova, apparently led by an Orthodox priest. Footage uploaded to YouTube shows a large group looking on as the menorah is down and replaced with a cross. In a statement released Monday, the ADL urged both the Moldovan government and the Orthodox Church to bring those responsible to justice. "The Moldovan government and the Orthodox Church must punish the perpetrators of this despicable anti-Semitic crime and send a clear signal to Moldovan society and to the Jewish community that the government and the church will not tolerate anti-Semitism," ADL National Director Abraham H. Foxman said in the statement.
