Suspected satanists vandalized an Israeli synagogue. Twenty swastikas, as well as what police described as satanic symbols, were found scrawled over the main synagogue in Petach Tikva on Thursday. The Torah ark and stacks of prayerbooks were ransacked. Locals said the synagogue previously had been vandalized but never to such an extent. The discovery last year of a swastika tattoo on an Israeli soldier who had immigrated from the former Soviet Union prompted legislation for a crackdown on neo-Nazis in the Jewish state.
