DEBKAfile was founded by a team of journalists in June 2000 as an independent Internet Web site, providing an intelligence and security news service. March 2, 2017, 11:21 PM (IDT)

The third Jewish cemetery was vandalized in the United States Thursday — this one in Rochester, New York. Five headstones were toppled at the Vaad Hakolel (Stone Road) Cemetery. But Michael Phillips who oversees the property hesitated to label this an anti-Semitic crime, because, he said, in the other attacks in Philadelphia and Missouri, headstones were damaged and sprayed with paint, while in Rochester “there was no defacing.” However, officials at The Jewish Federation of Greater Rochester condemned the act of vandalism at the Stone Road cemetery, and said it should be viewed in the current environment.
N.Y. Gov. Cuomo called for the State Police to investigate the desecration.

Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
