    Why Was This Synagogue Defaced?

    LORAIN, OH (WOIO) -
    On March 1st a Lorain synagogue was vandalized with a swastika. According to the police report a door frame on the east side of the Agudath B'nai Israel Synagogue was vandalized around 5:15 p.m.

    The suspect or suspects carved a swastika, followed by the words 'We will rise and gas you b****'. There are no suspects or witnesses at this time.

    The more than 100 year-old Jewish synogogue sits, tucked away in a grassy area, not far from a police district office.

    Cleveland 19 News spoke with a member of the Synagogue who says they are shocked, and they denounce the vandalism, and anti-semitism.

    The synagogue sent out a statement saying, "The act of ignorance, vandalism, and anti-Semitism does not reflect our neighbors in the City of Lorain. We are committed to continue to be symbol of tolerance in this community now and in the future. ABI provides education about Judaism, the Holocaust, and tolerance to schools and other organizations."

    This vandalism comes on the heels of threats to more than 100 Jewish community centers across the country, as well as vandalism at Jewish cemeteries in St. Louis, Philadelphia, and New York.

    It's not going to turn out to be Muslims, whether immigrants or not. It's going to be some mouth-breathing, "Christian", white supremacists, emboldened by the hateful rhetoric of the Bigot In The White House.

    You people supporting or excusing or even just trying to normalize this shit are behaving like cowards and traitors.

    Lorain has a large population of hispanics, who are generally Catholic. It could be just a bunch of douche bag kids who think nazi's are cool.

    A lot of younger kids are drawn to Nazis these days. There are a few social media characters that talk about it all the time. Sad but I don't think kids understand or really learn about Nazis anymore. They don't realize the history. Now some consider them "cool."
    Thanks from Madeline, OlGuy and HCProf

    All bigotry is based on ignorance. Doesn't help these kids do right when they hear the POTUS talking like a KKK member.

    A lot of kids don't listen to the president, they follow social media and its prevalent there these days. PewDiePie who has the most watched YouTube channel just got in trouble last week over Nazis. Most kids watch this guy everyday.

    I was referring to the bigotry of Trump. No, I don't think anyone here supports vandalizing synagogues.

    This is not stormfront.
