3 Arrested in Yad Vashem Vandalism Attack


Authorities on Tuesday morning announced the arrests of three suspects allegedly responsible for last month’s vandalism attack at Yad Vashem as well as at least two other ‘price tag’ attacks. The suspects are described as members of the chareidi community, ages 18, 26, and 37, residents of Yerushalayim, Bnei Brak and Ashdod. They are believed to be linked to a price tag attack against a Jordan Valley memorial and other similar attacks.

Police searched the homes of the suspects, reporting they found “anti-Zionist literature”, cans of spray paint and PLO flags. In addition, seditious content was found on their computer hard discs.

Israel Radio reported that the three have admitted to the allegations against them. The investigation continues.

At the Yad Vashem attack, Hebrew graffiti included “Hitler, thanks for the Holocaust”, “The State of Israel – The spiritual Auschwitz of Mizrachi yiddishkheit”, “Jews awaken, the Zionist regime is not protecting us but hurting us”, The Zionist leaders wanted the holocaust” and “If there was no Holocaust the Zionists would have invented it”.

The three are being remanded today in the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court. Police will request their remand without bail.

  1. May HKB”H grant them their wish and allow them, their families, and fellow believers, to live somewhere else where they would feel loved and cherished – perhaps Gaza, Jordan, Syria, or Iran. Omein.

  2. For those who still wondere what happens to those who absorb, are taught and believe that ANTI-Zionist Torah is Toras hashem………hatred breeds violence, injuries and even worse.
