Anti-semitism in Chile....
It gets worse in yet another country...
The president of Chile’s Jewish community has been given police protection following a spike in anti-Semitic attacks across the country.
Gabriel Zaliasnik told The Jerusalem Post Tuesday that his house was being guarded by a police detail after he and his son had received threats of violence.
“I am 43 years old, and I don’t recall something like this,” he said. “We’ve had eight different anti-Semitic events in different parts of the country.”
In recent weeks, schools, synagogues and cemeteries in the cities of Santiago, Concepcion and Temuco have been vandalized and desecrated, according to the American Jewish Committee, which has been monitoring the situation.
In Santiago, Chile’s capital, unknown vandals scrawled “Juden Raus” (German for “Jews out”) on the walls of the Chaim Weizmann school. In a separate incident, a video was posted on the Web showing a group of people urinating in a Jewish cemetery in the city.
