Rabbi Warns: Neo-Nazis May be Back in Jerusalem
Anti-Semitic graffiti found recently in Jerusalem may indicate that a Russian neo-Nazi gang is back in business, Rabbi Zalman Gilichinski warns. Rabbi Gilichinski heads a center to assist victims of anti-Semitism in Israel.
The graffiti was found in the neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev in northern Jerusalem. It included swastikas and praise of Hitler.
Anti-Jewish graffiti in the capital is usually attributed to Arabs. However, Rabbi Gilichinski said, “The style of writing, ‘Hitler z”l,’ is not an Arab style.”
