Anti-Semitic Graffiti Scrawled On London Synagogue And Shops During Hanukkah

  Anti-Semitic Graffiti Scrawled On London Synagogue And Shops During Hanukkah Anti-Semitic graffiti has been scrawled overnight on a north London synagogue and a number of shops as Jews celebrated Hanukkah. The Star of David was graffitied in red and purple spray-paint alongside the numbers “9 11” on several different buildings in the Hampstead and Belsize Park area, including South Hampstead Synagogue. The numbers reference an anti-Semitic conspiracy theory which claims Jews are responsible for the 9/11 terror attack which destroyed the World Trade Centre in New York. CST is aware of several examples of antisemitic graffiti in Belsize Park / Hampstead last night.

Without a doubt the best-known street artist in the world , Banksy is also one of the most elusive and controversial. Thought to be originally from Bristol, England, he started out in the graffiti Images of Banksy ’ s provocative works often go viral, and today art -lovers pay six-figure sums for his originals.

Many young pandas born abroad in captivity are later repatriated to China, where the species originates.

But Xin Xin and Shuan Shuan, with their plump bodies and tender expressions, will be staying put.

They are the last in the line of a panda couple -- Ying Ying and Pe Pe -- loaned to Mexico by the Chinese government in 1975.

Since 1980, China has operated a different policy in which it only lends pandas for a short time and in return for a payment towards wild panda conservation efforts.

The panda is considered a vulnerable species.

As Ying Ying and Pe Pe arrived in Mexico before China changed its policy, Xin Xin and Shuan Shuan will stay in Mexico.

"With that, Mexico became the first country outside of China to have had a successful natural reproduction of pandas outside their natural habitat, in captivity conditions," said Tinajero.

He said eight more pandas were born in Mexico between 1980 and 1990 but only four of those survived.

Giant pandas typically live until about 20 in the wild and 30 in captivity.

They average around 100-115 kilograms (220-250 pounds) and adults stand between 1.2 to 1.9 meters (4-6 feet) tall. Males can weigh as much as 160 kilograms.

Antisemitic attacks in London could get more violent, campaigners warn .
Antisemitic attacks in north London have blighted Hanukkah celebrations and could turn more violent, an NGO has warned. The Campaign Against Antisemitism group said politicians need to realise the scale of the problem or risk violent antisemitic attacks like a recent stabbing in New York being replicated in the UK. The group’s fears follow a series of attacks aimed against Jewish people over Hanukkah, which was observed from December 22 to December 30, and have carried on into 2020, with several reported in Stamford Hill, north London.
