Do you think this will wake up the asshats in Follywood like Spielberg, Streisand, Portman, Diller, Katzenberg, balh blah blahc - nah, me neither. When they get on the trains, they'll blame Bush!
A vandal or vandals used shaving cream to paint swastikas on the Malibu Jewish Center and Synagogue and shattered a window, according to authorities.
The damage was discovered by a center employee this morning. Los Angeles County Sheriff¢s Lt. Andrew Rosso said the vandalism was reported just after 10 a.m. and that no suspects had been identified as of this evening.
The agency's hate crimes unit is investigating the incident, he said. The Jewish Center is located in the 24800 block of Pacific Coast Highway.
UPDATE: Here are remarks from the Rabbi of the shul:
The good news is that nothing was destroyed other than the door and our new sanctuary was untouched. No Torah scrolls were defaced and no books or computers were damaged.
However, the psychic damage is inescapable. As Jews, we are immediately transported back to Kristallnacht and other incidents of vandalism and destruction aimed at Jewish institutions.
Unfortunately, these memories have become a part of our "historic NA" and we now know how important it is to respond to any incident, grave or small, that targets the identity of the Jewish people.
It is in times like these that we are reminded of our commitment to the Jewish people as a whole and to our synagogue. Together, we will take all steps necessary to assure that the ugly face of hate crimes will have no place in our beautiful community of Malibu. If there are any further developments, we will let you know as soon as possible.
