Los Angeles Synagogue Vandalized With 'Free Palestine,' 'F-- Israel' Graffiti

A synagogue in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles was vandalized on May 30 with graffiti stating “free Palestine” and “f— Israel.”

Lisa Daftari, founder and editor of the foreign policy news outlet The Foreign Desk, first reported on the graffiti on social media.

“Synagogue Congregation Beth El on Beverly Blvd in Los Angeles vandalized… Tell me this ugly hatred is still about #BLM or #GeorgeFloyd?!” she tweeted.

Jewish groups condemned the graffiti.

NJ city councilor who went on an anti-gay rant during coronavirus meeting escapes censure

Trenton, New Jersey Councilwoman Robin Vaughn survived a council censure vote on Tuesday after audio hit the web of her calling the city’s first-ever gay Mayor Reed Gusciora a “pedophile,” “a woman,” a “b*tch *ss” during an insult fight with him and fellow City Councilman Joe Harrison on a call that was supposed to be about the city’s coronavirus response. Vaughn also told Harrison to “continue to suck Reed Gusciora’s d*ck all you want to, motherf*cker.”

While many called on Vaughn to resign in light of her homophobic comments, five out of seven council members voted against censuring her.

Concurrently, Gusciora has since had his safety threatened by Trump-supporting Twitter users — something he has reported to police — and the City Clerk Dwayne Harris has resigned after another city councilman, George Muschal, threatened to audit his office after accusing Harris of lying about the availability of funding for council aides.

In short, the entire Trenton City Council sounds absolutely bonkers.

I am shocked. Oh wait, no I am not. Yet another case of the bigot getting defended and victim inversion. This is related to: Councilwoman says she's sorry for shouting homophobic slurs at gay mayor but she won't resign ("Sorry if you were offended" apology) and Councilwoman becomes completely unhinged in conference call, attacks city's first openly gay mayor

Homophobia is wrong....but only in certain situations.
