War Memorial in Welsh City of Rhyl Defaced With Anti-Semitic Graffiti
February 25, 2021
Swastikas and anti-Semitic slurs were scrawled earlier this week on a memorial to fallen British soldiers in Welsh city of Rhyl.
The graffiti was discovered on Tuesday evening, the BBC reported.
“I just think it’s disgusting what has been written,” Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal organizer Richard Kendrick was quoted as saying.
“I have never seen anything like this before,” he added.

North Wales Police said an investigation had been opened into the vandalism incident, and that security would be beefed up at the memorial site.
With such manifestations of Jew-hatred being seen across the globe with increasing frequency, the Combat Anti-Semitism Movement (CAM) is hosting the first-ever Mayors Summit Against Anti-Semitism, on March 16, to highlight steps cities can take to keep bigotry off their streets.
