Another Jewish cemetery attack. Will Muslim supremacists exploit this one too? Vicious anti-Israel Jew-haters like Linda Sarsour use the last series of attacks on dead Jews to stage gofund-raising PR stunts playing to an enemedia with a voracious appetite for these theatrics. They got a ton of mileage out of that ruse.

Dozens of headstones damaged at Philadelphia Jewish cemetery

WISSINOMING (WPVI) — Dozens of headstones at a Jewish cemetery in the Wissinoming section of Philadelphia have been broken and overturned.

The Philadelphia police say this was an act of vandalism at the Mt. Carmel Cemetery on the corner of Frankford and Cheltenham avenues.

Aaron Mallin of North Jersey made the disturbing discovery Sunday when he came to visit his father’s grave.

“It’s just very disheartening that such a thing would take place,” Mallin said.

He says he knows this doesn’t look good, but is hoping that somehow this wasn’t an anti-Semitic attack.

“I’m hoping it was maybe just some drunk kids. But the fact that there’s so many, it leads one to think it could have been targeted,” Mallin said.

The damage is widespread all across the cemetery with dozens, perhaps hundreds, of headstones affected.

Mallin just doesn’t understand how someone could do this.

“It’s just very heartbreaking,” Mallin said.

Israeli Foreign Ministry Spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon released a statement on Twitter saying, “#Philadelphia Jewish cemetery desecration is shocking and a source of worry . Full confidence #US authorities catch and punish culprits.”

The Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia tells Action News they will be opening a mailbox at later Sunday to begin raising money to help speed up the repairs of the cemetery.

    There was a concern that shtetl Jews were becoming isolated and irrelevant, as in some urban, concentration camp.

    To the best of my understanding, we weren’t autonomous, during those days.

    Why can’t Jewish, cultural relics and institutions be placed under Jewish ownership and Jewish protection. Some of us are smart, some are strong. Why not be directly responsible, instead of playing the victim.
