Personally, I don’t think Germans were responsible for this. The swastika is backwards and I can’t see a native German screwing something like that up. But, Hey! It’s the thought that counts, nicht war?
Smoke bomb thrown into Jewish kindergarten in Berlin
BERLIN (EJP)— A tragedy was avoided on Sunday after a smoke bomb, thrown through a window of a Jewish kindergarten in Berlin, failed to ignite.
However, the school, located in a northwest neighbourhood of the German capital, was not spared by the spray painting of swastikas, other Nazi symbols and anti-Semitic phrases, such as “Auschwitz,” “Juden Raus” (Jews, get out) and “Sieg Heil”, on its outer walls, as well as on toys that had been lying around in the school’s playground.
The attack happened exactly three months to day after a Croatian national broke into the Lauder Chabad School in Vienna, Austria, and systematically smashed windows and porcelain with a crowbar.
Stephan Kramer, secretary general of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, has accused the Berlin State Senate as well as Berlin’s local Jewish community of not having taken the necessary precautions to help divert such an attack.
Kramer was embarrassed that rabbis from around the world that were present at the Torah inauguration ceremony, had to experience first hand what an anti-Semitic act in Germany meant. [/quote]
