Headstones toppled in Brooklyn cemetery

Several headstones at Brooklyn's predominantly Jewish Washington Cemetery were vandalized on Saturday night, making this the fourth Jewish graveyard to be desecrated in the past two weeks.
The New York Police Department and the Hate Crimes Division are investigating the incident.

Israeli Consul in New York Danny Dayan said in an interview Sunday morning that the Jewish community is troubled by the recent wave of anti-Semitism in the US, including false bomb threats in scores of schools and community centers across the country. He said parents are beginning to pull children out of Jewish community centers.
