Paris Vandals Tear Down Signs of Israel Exhibit; Signs Sketched "Open a Door to Israel" at Louvre

Vandals defaced and tore down signs announcing an exhibit about Israel at the Louvre Museum in Paris, the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website reports today (April 4, 2016).

The vandalism -- which occurred yesterday morning on the French capital's subway -- can be considered an anti-Semitic hate act.

The exhibit -- called "Open a Door to Israel" -- is a joint project of Israel's Strategic Affairs and Foreign Affairs ministries, and features nine doors that open to interactive screens that present different aspects of Israel.

Israeli Strategic Affairs Minister Gilad Erdan said in a statement that the signs were ruined by activists of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel.
