'Holocaust is fake history' scrawled on US synagogue

'Holocaust is fake history' scrawled on US synagogue

A Seattle synagogue has been vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti, in a move that echoes a deeply disturbing trend of threats against Jewish centers and synagogues across the United States.

After interfaith march against gun violence in America, Rabbi Daniel Weiner of Temple De Hirsch Sinai prepares to light the candles of the congregation with his own candle at St. James Cathedral.

"It really is a toxic mix of Holocaust denial, the stereotypical charge that Jews are obsessed with money, and the notion coming from the (President Trump) administration that all facts are fungible ... fake facts, fake history", Weiner said.

Family: Man accused in grandmother's death has drug problem
Relatives say Hazel loved her grandson and they blame his addiction for destroying his life and ending hers. According to court documents, she told investigators she heard gunshots while she was outside the home.

A suspicious package also was found near the temple Friday, but police said later on Twitter that it turned out to be a book donation.

The graffiti is the latest in a wave of anti-Semitic vandalism and threats made to Jewish institutions all over the country.

Sean Whitcomb, public information officer for the Seattle Police Department, said Bias Crimes Detective Beth Waring is investigating the incident as a hate crime.

"This is what we do this is our place of worship and we're not going to let one outliner discourage us", said Loeb. "I just felt it very important that the community see this and we document it before it's covered up or erased". Right here in Washington - a state known for being tolerant, open-minded and forward-thinking - we are seeing an increase in reports of harassment, vandalism and attacks against Muslims, Sikhs, Hispanics and Latinos, African-Americans, LGBTQ individuals and other minority groups. "But most of the calls I've gotten, all of the calls have been supportive, but most have been defiant", he said.

The graffiti left on the side of Temple de Hirsch Sinai was the first major instance of discriminatory aggression Weiner could remember during his tenure. He said the temple has experienced "minor vandalism" before and received a threatening phone call after the election.

"A message needs to come from our president, not only decrying anti-Semitism but specifically indicting white supremacists and in particular those who support his candidacy", Weiner said. "I don't know if it's more or less than it's been previously".

Mulvaney Says Budget Good For the People, Not Special Interests
The core of my first Budget Blueprint is the rebuilding of our Nation's military without adding to our Federal deficit. That's up to Congress to decide, and already many provisions of Trump's budget appear to be dead on arrival .

Weiner said he was already scheduled to meet with Sen. Maria Cantwell on Friday afternoon, along with area leaders of other faiths.
