Yad Vashem: Shapira's actions, statements pervert Holocaust

Yad Vashem on Monday responded to reports that former Israeli Air Force captain and Israel boycott activist Yonatan Shapira spray-painted pro-Palestinian graffiti on the walls of the Warsaw Ghetto last week, saying the museum was "repulsed" by Shapira's actions and statements.
"We see in his actions a provocation that perverts the history both of the Holocaust and of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. These actions, tainted with anti-Semitism, point to a person who has lost all factual and moral judgment. The use of the Holocaust in the way that Shapira has chosen to do so is a crass manipulation that warps the historical truth," read the statement.
