Spanish Jewish community condemns vandalism at Ceuta synagogue

The Federation of Jewish Communities in Spain (FCJE) strongly condemned the graffiti found on the façade of the synagogue in the Spanish enclave of Ceuta in North Africa.

“Graffiti calling for ‘Free Palestine’, implies that Jews, in this case from Ceuta, are to be held responsible for the ongoing conflict between Israel and the Palestinian factions Hamas and Islamic Jihad,” a statement from the FCJE read.

“The FCJE, as the representative organisation of Spanish Jews, calls on the authorities to prosecute such behaviour and to take every measure necessary to protect our communities.”

“Spanish Jewish communities live in peace and harmony with our neighbours and we do not cater to such accusations,” the statement concluded.
