The Washington Post

The baby-size July 27 Metro item “Vandals deface Olney synagogue” should have been allotted more space, better location and a bigger headline.

Inasmuch as hateful expressions and German anti-Semitic phrases such as “Juden Raus” were spray-painted on B’nai Shalom Synagogue of Olney, the vandals appear to be Nazi adults, not teenagers whose anti-Semitism is usually limited to spray-painting swastikas.

A Google search shows many articles and newscasts on the incident. I worry that many of your longtime readers might not be aware of the widespread shock as suggested by the newsworthiness of this hateful crime against a house of worship.
