Swasitkas and other abusive graffiti were painted at the entrance to a Jewish grade school in Montgomery county, Maryland. Police were summoned to investigate the scene.

According to local media, the members of the local Jewish community conduct the Shaharit morning prayer service at the Jewish school.

One of those praying there discovered the graffiti and alerted the local police who initiated an investigation.

This is not the first time that Maryland has suffered anti-Semitic events. About a year ago anonymous elements sprayed graffiti and anti-Semitic inscriptions on a whiteboard in the dorms of Maryland University, sparking a stormy reaction from Jewish students there.

Besides investigating the identity of the graffiti sprayers, dorm residents decided to answer them with their own missive which they hung near the main door of the university.

"To whoever drew swastikas on our door. Would you have drawn them if you knew that one of our grandfathers was tied to a wall and shot by Nazis during the Second World War simply because he was Jewish? Two thirds of those living here on campus are Jews. Think about that," they wrote.
