A cultural center in Madrid, Spain was vandalized with graffiti reading "I command you to kill Jews" and "Free Palestine, kill a Jew." Both phrases had swastikas spray painted next to them and the "Free Palestine" graffiti appears to say "SS," referring to Nazis.
Spokesman of the Israeli Embassy in Spain Yoav Katz tweeted photos of the incident on Monday and remarked that it ocurred just days before the 75th anniversary of the liberation of Aschwitz.
"[Sunday] we got more proof of how much needs to be done [to fight antisemitism]," Katz tweeted.
Katz also thanked the local municipality for removing the graffiti.
In September, Barcelona's largest synagogue was vandalized with the word "Free Palestine."
“Confusing a synagogue with the State of Israel reflects a racist mentality,” Jaume Padrós, president of the Official College of Physicians of Barcelona, wrote on Twitter.
