Jewish Headstones Destroyed in Athens Cemetery; Anti-Semitism Hits Greece as It Permeates Europe

Greek police said today (May 5, 2018) that unknown assailants destroyed several Jewish headstones in a cemetery in a southwestern suburb of Athens, according to the AFP (Agence France-Presse) website.

"Marble grave headstones were damaged in the Jewish part of the Nikaia cemetery," a police spokesman said.

The head of the Central Board of Jewish Communities in Greece (KIS), Minos Moissis, said he was "very angry" about the desecration, in a Facebook post.

The vandalism comes amid a wave of rising anti-Semitism in Europe, after a spate of recent incidents across the continent.
