Jewish Cemeteries Attacked in Hungary & England

Over 120 tombstones in the Kozma Street Jewish Cemetery in Budapest, Hungary, were damaged in an anti-Semitic attack local Jewish officials reported on Wednesday. Stones were smashed, knocked over and broken. The attack was apparently carried out during a holiday period during which the cemetery was closed.

Elsewhere in Europe, officials in London on Wednesday reported a Jewish cemetery in the eastern district of West Ham was attacked by vandals, damaging close to one hundred tombstones, spray painting swastikas and other hate and anti-Semitic graffiti. It was the second attack against a London Jewish cemetery in the past week local police reported.

Yes. Anti-semitism is sadly on the rise again. This information you post pains me deeply.
