Ottawa Jewish Cemetery defaced
I will state upfront - that vandalism not matter what is certainly wrong, especially a cemetery - no matter which denomination involved.
That said, I do wonder at the timing of this occurrence. This leads me to finding three scenarios which might explain this vile act:
1. The perps were actually neo-nazis and determined to spew their anti-semetism.
2. The perps were drunk teens doing what drunk teens do - act like idiots.
3. The perps were actually fanatical Jews themselves attempting to garner sympathy in light of the Gaza massacre and the Goldstone Report.
You go ahead and pick, but while you do keep in mind that quite a few of these 'anti-semite' attacks have in the past been perpetrated by the Jews themselves.
WRH Hate Crime Hoaxes
What ever you decide this was motivated by, it certainly did work to garner much sympathy for the Jewish community in Ottawa, and while everyone was lamenting this dispicable act - no one was talking about the crimes committed in the name of the Jewish State itself. It did manage to portray the Jews as helpless victims once again - a portrayal which in light of Israel's many atrocities is getting harder and harder to maintain.
So, you decide. As I sincerely doubt the guilty parties will ever been found or arrested.
