The translation of these slogans read, “Free Palestine,” “Zionism is Racism,” and “The wall is your shame.”

The identity of the perpetrators is not yet known. However, the owners confirmed via their Facebook page that the matter had been reported to police. They tried to make light of the situation asking whether there was, “Enough water to wash it all” off? They finished their post with the slogan, “MAKE HUMMUS NOT WALL!!!!”tel aviv 2

Anti-Semitic vandalism in Poland is not a new problem. In February, anti-Semitic graffiti was spray painted on monuments at a Jewish cemetery in the city of Sochaczew (pronounced: Sokhatchev) in central Poland. The text included the statement, “Holocaust never happened”.

Despite appeals by the Sochaczew museum to have the graffiti removed, at the end of February it was still in place.
