The Old Evil Resumes

Arson Suspected In Synagogue Fire
Associated Press

Fire caused major damage to Geneva's largest synagogue early Thursday, and police said they suspect arson.

More than 40 firefighters were needed to extinguish the blaze, which broke out at 5 a.m. in the Hekhal Haness Synagogue in the city's Malagnou neighborhood. The fire was under control in an hour, but the blaze and smoke appeared to have destroyed much of the interior of the building, police spokesman Philippe Cosandey said.

"It's not clear whether the fire originated inside or outside the building or whether the fire was set," Cosandey said.

He said investigators' first impression was that it was arson. A statement later in the day said police were also working on the assumption that the fire could have started from an electrical fault.

Nobody was injured in the incident, police said. It was too early to give a damage estimate, said Cosandey.

There have been incidents of anti-Semitism in Switzerland, including graffiti scrawled on a Geneva synagogue last year.

I hope and pray that someday the Jewish people get fed up with this crap and once and for GD all wipe every Muslim off the planet. Ask yourselves:Is this how we are to live? Are our children and grandchildren going to have to be putting up with "L'enfant terrible''(Islam) too? J'Mac.
