Anti-Semitic vandals struck a synagogue in Bat Yam, located next to Tel Aviv, for the sixth time in a month. June 2, 2013.

Anti-Semitism reared its ugly head at night in the heart of the holiest city in the world, on the most sacred day of the Jewish year.

Black crosses were spray-painted on the wall of the synagogue of Congregation Shlomo in the Katamon neighborhood of Jerusalem during the night of Yom Kippur, sometime after the end of evening prayers, the Hebrew-language 0404 website reported.

This is not the first time crosses have been slathered on the synagogue walls by hate-filled vandals who work hard to hurt Jewish worshipers, according to residents who spoke with 0404. A similar attack took place two weeks ago, according to the report.

“We are sick of these attacks on Jewish life and on our feelings,” shocked worshipers said in response to the attack. “We are living in the capital city of Israel and look at this.

“If this were to take place at a mosque and it was a Jewish Star of David that was painted on the wall of the mosque, the police would be out in force, the president would be apologizing and the media would be screaming with headlines.

“It’s a disgrace that no one has even reported it.”
