A synagogue in Northern California was vandalized with posters portraying Jews as rapists, through anti-Semitic slurs, and praises to Hitler’s warning.
The anti-Semitic posters praising white supremacist mass-murderer Dylann Roof and portraying Jews as serial rapists were posted over the weekend in a synagogue in suburban Sacramento, California.
The Sacramento Bee reported that members of congregation Or Rishon made the shocking discovery on Saturday morning, about 10 to 15 of the hate posters stuck to the building. The posters were placed on the building overnight between Friday and Saturday.
One of the posters seemed to justify the June 2015 mass-shooting committed by white supremacist Dylann Roof at a predominantly black church in South Carolina, which claimed the lives of nine people. The other posters featured anti-Semitic caricatures.
There was also another poster that portrayed Jews as rapists, showing an image of disgraced former Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein and a man with side-locks sexually assaulting a non-Jewish woman. It also appears to praise Adolf Hitler and other prominent anti-Semites, exhorting the public to heed their warnings against Jews.
The poster also referenced white supremacists William Luther Pierce and George Lincoln Rockwell by saying "Yikes! Kikes! Hitler, Rockwell, and Pierce warned you about sleazy Hollywood kikes,".
The Sacramento Sheriff’s Department and the FBI were informed of the case as revealed by the reports. Meanwhile, the temple’s president, Kimberly Olker revealed that the security camera footage is being reviewed.
A report released by Rabbi Alan Rabishaw revealed that he has received messages of support from community leaders and leaders of the Muslim community. He also said that it is the first time the temple has been targeted. which serves about 275 families
Rabishaw also told the newspaper that the temple will not change how it operates in response to the attack. “They’re not in control, not even a little bit. We’re not hiding, we’re not afraid. We just do what we do with joy and peace in our hearts,” he emphasized.
