Gotha, Germany - Police in Germany searched today the home of a man whom they suspect hung a pig’s head over the entrance of an historic Jewish cemetery a week ago.

They said the suspect, 48, from the town of Gotha had a criminal record for similar hate offences.

The vandalism hit two cemeteries on the same night. The animal head was placed next to the Star of David symbol at the cemetery in Gotha, an anti-Semitic placard was left next to it and mock blood was thrown against the gate.

A substance meant to look like blood was also thrown on a Holocaust memorial plaque at the other cemetery, in the city of Erfurt. The suspect’s home was searched after a tip-off by witnesses to 20 detectives working on the case.

The story itself is news. I am not so sure that the picture of the animal's head should be posted on a frum website though...

He wanted to bury a German there. Many years ago I was in Germany on business, I got the impression that Germans are the biggest consumers of swine flesh; as they say, you are what you eat!

If this piggys picture was on a billboard we would protest. I say we protest quite vehemently that it is on this site Its 1000x more disgusting (to me) then a half undressed young lady. You can vomit from this.

A German once told me , regarding the goyish "New Year" that for a good year Germans must on Jan 1 have a meal of pork and saurkraut, to start things off right., also they eat something from the pigs head, I believe they call it "head cheese", We Jews are so fortunate that we get rewarded (for following kashrus) for Not eating stuff we find repulsive in the first place......think snails, musscles, and that great cockroach from the sea that they adoringly call Lobster.

This is what I expect from the Swineland. Does this make you wonder - if this idiot has anything better to do? Hopefully he will die a cruel death.

What would you like, that the readers of the Frum Jewish website should be ignoramuses and be shielded from everything?!

Note: for folks who wish to be shielded from all billboards (obscene or otherwise), you can move to Vermont. By law there are NO billboards in the state.
