A resident of Tel Aviv has been arrested for vandalizing a synagogue with Nazi graffiti.

Worshippers arriving at the city's Gr"a synagogue this morning were horrified to discover swastikas and Nazi slogans daubed on the wall and floor.

Among other things, the word "Death" was spray-painted on the front wall of the building, and a crude drawing of a devil was painted on the floor, along with the words "Satan destroys Christianity".

The 52 year-old suspect is in police custody subject to an investigation.
