BRUSSELS (EJP)--- The Brussels Jewish Memorial for Holocaust victims has been vandalised, in an attack described as "devastating" by the head of a Belgian Jewish association.

Judith Kronfeld, secretary general of the “Union of deportees in Belgium-Sons and Daughters of deportation” organisation, spoke of a “scene of devastation” which was discovered Monday night.

The gate of the Memorial’s crypt was pulled out, documents were destroyed, windows broken and an urn containing ashes from the Auschwitz-Birkenau Nazi death camp was desecrated and emptied.

“Anti-Semitic vandals, moved by a destructive rage, left behind a scene of devastation,” Kronfeld said.

Condoms and excrements were also found on the floor of the Memorial which is located in Anderlecht, a Brussels district with an important Arab population.

Lebanon war link?

Asked by EJP if this could have a link with current events in the Middle East, Kronfeld said: “I would not say that. It’s possible. It is not the first time there is vandalism in the Memorial with swastikas but it is the first time that such destruction happened,” she added.

No inscription was found Monday night. Police arrived on the scene Tuesday morning.

The Brussels National Monument to the Jewish Martyrs of Belgium bears the names of 25,411 men, women and children deported from Belgium to Auschwitz-Birkenau during WWII.

Names inscribed on the walls of the National Monument to the Jewish Martyrs of Belgium.

“This is sacred place of meditation and memory for the families of the people deported during the war. But is also a place for any democrat in Belgium to call for vigilance against anti-Semitic, racist and xenophobic feelings,” the Union of deportees in Belgium said.

“To attack the Memorial is to attack the entire Jewish community in Belgium, the Jewish people and the entire democratic population in this country. Nothing can justify or excuse such an act,” it said in a press release.

Looks like the Religion of Peace has struck again. Unless the countries of the EU make some tough decisions about the plague of muslime immigrants, it's about time for Europe's Jews to realize that it's the 1930's again.

Make that anti-Jewish. Other Semites (Arabs) may have done the damage.

Most likely the ROP, but I spoke to a nasty little Belgian the other day who had nothing but venom for Israel, Jews, the US, and Christians. He wasn't Muslim.

Post-Holocaust and Anti-Semitism

February 2005 Anti-Zionism in Belgium - The Country's Civil Religion that Reflects the New Anti-Semitism An Interview with Joël Kotek

Anti-Zionism has become a civil religion in Belgium. Its credo is that the Palestinians are always right and the Israelis are always wrong.

A Proud Anti-Zionist Country

"If it goes too far to say that Belgium is anti-Semitic, it certainly can be said that it is a very proud anti-Zionist country." When asked how he defines this, Kotek replies that the Belgian population broadly believes that Israel is the cancer of the world. "Therefore, it is Belgium's duty to expose that and defend the Palestinian cause in all possible ways, including through its press and international institutions. In addition, a new phenomenon has arisen - an outburst of anti-Semitic acts, physically violent and otherwise, by youngsters, mostly from North African origin."

Beyond sick. IMO, the Jewish people left in Europe should make aliyah to Israel fast.

There is a reason over 600 French Jews just emigrated to Israel. It is safer in a war zone than in Paris for them.
