Hillary Clinton on Tuesday condemned a recent streak of "troubling" antisemitic incidents, and called for action first and foremost from US President Donald Trump.

"JCC threats, cemetery desecration & online attacks are so troubling & they need to be stopped," she wrote on Twitter. "Everyone must speak out, starting w/ @POTUS."Clinton, who ran as the Democratic candidate in the latest US presidential election, made the remarks a day after 11 Jewish community centers across the United States were targeted with false bomb threats, the fourth such wave of harassing phone calls in five weeks.

Also on Monday, vandals damaged and knocked-over more than 100 headstones at a St. Louis-area Jewish cemetery.
