Swastikas scrawled on Bnei Brak synagogues

Swastikas were scrawled on the walls of two synagogues in Bnei Brak on Saturday, with Israel Police opening an investigation on Saturday night.

In front of one of the synagogues, photos of Shira Banki, who was murdered by a haredi extremist in the Jerusalem Pride Parade in 2015, were scattered in front of the entrance. Friday marked 11 years since the murder took place.
“The bullying rampage and spray-painting of swastikas on a synagogue in Bnei Brak on Shabbat is the rotten fruit of continued and unbridled incitement against everything that smells of Judaism and haredim,” said United Torah Judaism MK Yaakov Asher on Saturday night, expressing hopes that he would be able to pass an amendment to expand the legal definition of racism to include incitement against haredim.
In 2015, Yishai Schlissel, a resident of Modi’in Illit, stabbed six people at the Jerusalem Pride Parade. In 2005, Schlissel stabbed several people at the pride parade, serving 10 years in prison until he was released just weeks before carrying out the attack in 2015.”The swastikas painted on the walls of the synagogue in Bnei Brak are a despicable, dangerous and disgusting act,” said Labor MK and Reform Rabbi Gilad Kariv on Saturday night. “The dumping of photos of the late Shira Banki on the spot only adds to the ugliness of the act and desecrates her memory and the message her parents have been carrying since her murder.”

“These sights that came to the forefront of the city of Bnei Brak are a clear result of [Finance Minister Avigdor] Lieberman’s incitement that lasted for many months in an attempt to bring about division and polarization in the people,” said UTJ MK Uri Maklev. “Most of the public in Israel dislikes this, but the system of slander and defamation of the left and media leads to terrible cases such as these. Such cases must not get on the agenda. This is not the first case that has taken place.”
Maklev added that he had contacted the chief of police to find out how they are operating on the matter and called on the public security minister to exhaust the investigation until it’s completed.
