Geneva synagogue fire was arson, investigator says

Remember this? How they all went out of their way to describe this obvious case of arson as some kind of ‘electrical malfunction’ or some crap like that? Well, synagogues and churches don’t just burn by themselves, especially not from the front entrance


GENEVA, June 1 (Reuters) A fire that devastated Geneva’s largest synagogue last week was caused by arson, the investigating magistrate said on Friday.
Investigators had believed an electrical fault might have been to blame for the pre-dawn blaze in the empty building, which injured no one, but had now established it was started deliberately.
Magistrate Michel Graber told Swiss news agency SDA that investigators were seeking a DNA analysis from a cigarette butt found at the scene.
The May 24 fire largely destroyed the Hekhal Haness synagogue, built in the 1970s.
Wealthy Switzerland is known for public order and tolerance but has become increasingly the focus of religious tension, particularly targeting its Muslim minority.
Anti-Semitic acts that become public are rare, but in June 2001 an Israeli rabbi was shot dead on the streets of Zurich.
The fire took place during the Jewish holiday of Shavuot, which marks the giving of the Torah, the Jewish holy book, by God to Moses on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.

*A certain religion has the nasty habit of attacking other religions on their high holidays. Although this is well documented and a repeating pattern can be found around the world to prove that this continues over more than one millennium the authorities are willfully blind to this menace.

Why do you think that is?

  1. Now now, we don’t know who set this fire.

    However, 1.2 billion or so people do have a strange fascination with fire.
    And guns.
    And bombs.
    And sawing off heads.
    And lots of other fun things.

    Wouldn’t surprise me at all if one or two of that 1.2 billion were in on this.

  2. its about time people inform their government they need to export their muslims to nears land of islam. muslims do not want to live in peace with their neighbours, demand that they be given special privilidges, and it is begining to take its ugly course on the rest of the non muslim civilians. deport muslims now.

  3. More and more mysterious. The “electrical fault” was plausible, coming from the person who funded or built the synagogue, but this current article says the fire “devastated” the buliding, other versions say “severely damaged”, and others say “only lightly damaged”, though the facade was badly damaged ( ).

    It may be significant that the synagogue is “attended mostly by Sephardic Jews with Middle Eastern and North African roots”; payback for opposing minarets on mosques, perhaps?.
