Hundreds of Tombstones Vandalized at Jewish Cemeteries in Philadelphia and Missouri drawing Condemnation from the President and the Vice President of the United States

LISTEN NOW! Persecution against the Church and the Jewish community continues, this time in the horrific actions of vandalizing Jewish cemeteries. As WPVI is reporting that over 100 headstones have been overturned in Mt. Carmel Cemetery, in the Philadelphia area. As Bob Brooks traveled to the scene to report about what has transpired, he comments how multiple volunteers have responded within a 24-hour window to do all they can to clean up the damage. But, as he points out, there is only so much that can be done. “What you’ll see…is these old-style tombstones like that that don’t rest on a base. Those have been split in half and those are the kind of ones that will never be able to be fixed.” Mayor of Philadelphia, Jim Kenney, also spoke out against the violence. “This ethnic, religious and bigotry needs to stop. It needs to be put an end to.”
 
President Trump and Vice President Trump were also very outspoken speaking against these acts of vandalism. President Trump responded to these actions, “The anti-Semitic threats targeting our Jewish community and community centers are horrible, and are painful, and a very sad reminder of the work that still must be done to root out hate, and prejudice, and evil.” Vice President Pence also commented on similar vandalism that occurred in University City, Missouri. “We condemn this vile act of vandalism and those who perpetrate it in the strongest possible terms.” Vice President Pence also commented on the response of many who came in response, to help in many ways. “It’s been inspiring to people, all across this country to see the way that people of Missouri have rallied around the Jewish community with compassion and support. You have inspired this nation with your kindness and your care.”
 
KY3 News is further reporting how “around 180 headstones had been knocked off their bases at the Chesed Shel Emeth Cemetery.” This cemetery is in the St. Louis area. But, the response to help wasn’t limited to the local populace. “Muslim activists started a crowd funding campaign to help with the cost of repairing the headstones. It raised over $80,000 in 24 hours.”

 

These are horrific events that are taking place against our Jewish brothers and sisters and we must stand in support of them.
