Russia. Four unions of aggressive national orientation are registered in Saratov, the head of Jewish religious society Rabbi Mikhael Frumin said at the press conference.
Anti-Semitic tricks take place again and again. Next time the "patriots" showed up on September 6, the day of celebration of Jewish New Year. The synagogue fence was "decorated" with bright-red "appeals" "Out of Russia" and "Death to you".
Great Britain. A bottle with petrol was thrown at the Edinburgh synagogue. A glass vessel with paper fuse filled with inflammable liquid broke against the door of two-storeyed building on Salisbury road. Fortunately, no one suffered.
Romania. Neo-Nazi graffiti began to appear on houses' walls in Romanian city Kluzh. The vocabulary of vandals is not very big - neo-Nazi slogans, curses, swastikas. The chief of city police tries to present this fact of vandalism as a child's prank. However, Havrila Goldener, the head of local Jewish community, stated the city Jews approach this incident rather seriously. The graffiti appeared on the houses some days after anti-Semitic signs had been drawn on the building of city Jewish theatre. Nearly 300 Jews live in Kluzh.
Syria. The book of Syria's Minister of Defense Mustafa Tlass named "Matsa Siona", devoted to Jews taking the human blood and describing Damascus bloody slanders as "truthful historical facts" is very popular on the book fair taking place in Damascus.
Due to its big demand the 8th issue of the book is being prepared in Arab with translation into English, French, Italian and other languages.
Many organizations and officials have a very critical attitude to the publishing of Tlass book. Their letters are included in the new issue.
The letter by the head of "Simon Vizental center" in Los Angeles, the letter by ex-minister of foreign affairs of USA George Shults as well as numerous protest notes from American and European Embassies are among them.
Czech Republic. Vandals have desecrated an old Jewish cemetery of XVIII century in Southwest of the country, in Domazlits city, 150 km away from Prague. Five gravestones were crashed. Besides, malefactors stole 5 copper lanterns and 2 copper gravestones with Hebrew signs.
