Colom­bia con­demns van­dal­ism of meno­rah mon­u­ment

Antelope Valley Press (Sunday) - - Second Front -

BO­GOTA, Colom­bia — The Colom­bian gov­ern­ment and Is­rael’s am­bas­sador have con­demned the van­dal­ism of a meno­rah mon­u­ment in Bo­gota.

The for­eign min­istry on Fri­day de­scribed the de­face­ment of the mon­u­ment on Is­rael State Av­enue in the Colom­bian cap­i­tal as an ex­pres­sion of “in­tol­er­ance and hate.”

Is­raeli Am­bas­sador Chris­tian Cantor tweeted a pho­to­graph of the stone mon­u­ment. It shows a swastika painted in orange on the base of the mon­u­ment and the en­graved word “Is­rael” is cov­ered in paint.
