The Growing Epidemic in Europe

From the AP: Vandals desecrated 86 tombstones dating to the 1870s in a Jewish cemetery in London, spraying some of them with Nazi swastikas and racial slurs while knocking them over, police said Thursday.

The attack was reported a day after Hungarian authorities said about 130 tombstones were knocked down and broken at the Kozma Street Jewish Cemetery in Budapest. Culture Minister Andras Bozoki said the government would “provide all assistance” necessary to repair the tombstones.

TigerHawk notes: According to people who keep track of such things, there were more anti-Semitic acts in Great Britain last year than in any other year in the last twenty.
