Turkey: Synagogue target of demonstrations, vandalism

Unknown vandals posted a note reading “To be Demolished” on the doors of Istanbul’s main Neve Shalom Synagogue on Friday, according to a local newspaper.


On Sunday, a local nationalistic youth group, Alperen Ocaklari, marched on Neve Shalom to protest recent Israeli police clashes with Arab rioters on Jerusalem’s Temple Mount.

“About 100 members of the group chanted anti-israel slogans and ‘takbir’ (a proclamation of the greatness of God),” according to the source, until police stopped them before they entered the street where the synagogue is located.
