Graffiti Attack on Hackney Synagogue

Graffiti has appeared on Hackney synagogues declaring, amongst other things, 'Jihad to Tel Aviv'.

If anyone would like to put the case that this action is not anti-semitic but actually legitimate criticism of the Israeli state, then the comments box is open. You'll have an argument back from me, though.

In much the same way, if someone daubed 'bomb Iran' on the walls of a mosque, I'd consider that to be an Islamophobic action (a term I've never been very comfortable with, but does seem to have properly entered the vocabulary now).
