I wrote about this last night and Allahpundit wrote a follow-up today. But there are even more incidents mentioned in this Fox News roundup. For instance, Gabby Giffords’ synagogue in Tucson was vandalized.
She’s apparently referring to this incident.
Over the weekend a synagogue in Salt Lake City was tagged with a swastika:
That incident is being investigated as a hate crime. And in Chicago a man broke a window of a synagogue and then posted a pro-Palestinian sign on the door. The whole thing was captured on video which you can see in this local news report.
Here’s a closeup of the guy with the sign.
Apparently, there had been a pro-Palestinian protest across the street from this synagogue where people were chanting “From the river to the sea…”
And finally, there was an incident Tuesday involving a Jewish family on vacation in Florida. As they left a local synagogue they were harassed by a group of men in an SUV who shouted, among other things, that they would rape his 16-year-old daughter.
Four men who appeared to be in their 20s shouted and threw garbage at them from a white sports utility vehicle. Their rant focused on the Israel-Hamas conflict: “Free Palestine!” “[Expletive] the Jews!” “Die Jew!”
“They yelled they were going to rape my wife and rape my daughter,” Orgen said.
A driver who witnessed the attack decided to defend them. He was armed with a gun and when the men drove away he chased them, Orgen said.
Here’s a local newas report which includes an interview with the father.
