1

The Jewish fest Chanukah which is celebrated in those days by Jews all over the world was overshadowed by an anti-Semitic act in the capital of Moldova on Sunday, as The General Director of the Jewish Congress of Moldova, the famous theater director Ilya Schatz, told RIA Novosti.

According to his words, the Chanukah (candleholder) with enlightened candles which was set on Friday with the permission of the city authorities in the European Central Park was overthrown and smashed by a crowd of up to hundred people which were yelling anti-Semitic slogans.

“This hooligan group of Christian Orthodox seemed like parishioners of an orthodox advent” said Schatz.

He explained that these people “demanded that the Jews were removed from Moldova”.

“They are interested in the destabilization of the national situation in Moldova; they are annoyed by the tolerance of which the multinational Moldova was proud for so many years”, believes the Director of the Jewish Congress of the country.

RIA Novosti to date does not dispose of a commentary of the law enforcement authorities.
