127 graves were found desecrated at a Jewish cemetery in an eastern French town, and two days following the conclusion of a major conference in Berlin on combating anti-Semitism.
Police sources said that the discovery of the desecrated graves was made by a municipal worker in the village of Herrlisheim, 20 km. west of the German border. At the entrance to the cemetery, the police said that a German flag was found with graffiti stating “Juden Raus” (Jews out) and lauding Adolph Hitler.
Swastikas and SS initials were daubed in red paint on many of the grave stones.
Shockingly, Dalil Bubakr, president of the French Muslim organization described the act as “barbaric and stupid,” and noted that several mosques in the area were also recently desecrated. We wonder if no mosques were desecrated, would Dalil Bubakr still have the same sentiment? We doubt it.
