Yad Vashem comment in reaction to arrest of graffiti suspects

26 June 2012

Reacting to the arrest of the suspects, Yad Vashem Chairman Avner Shalev said, "We appreciate the work of the police, who acted quickly and effectively. I believe that it was important to know the identities of those who spray-painted the graffiti. The suspects are extremist ultra-Orthodox Jews, anti-Zionists, who are on the fringes of society, and do not represent the majority who respect the memory of the Holocaust. Numerous reactions that we received from Israel and around the world, expressing condemnation and repugnance of the graffiti testify that this warped action offended many, and I hope that the court will mete out justice to the criminals.”
