      Attack Against Caracas Synagogue 'Reminiscent of Kristallnacht'


      The Simon Wiesenthal Center expressed harsh criticism of Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez for enabling the recent anti-Semitic attack that plagued the country’s largest synagogue, saying it was “reminiscent of Hitler’s Kristallnacht pogrom of November 1938.” An enraged mob, chanting anti-Israel slogans, launching firecrackers and burning Israeli flags, attacked the Maripérez Synagogue in Caracas on Thursday for the second time since January of 2009.
