Manchester, England - Police have slammed vandals who destroyed a tombstone at a Jewish cemetery as a ‘complete disgrace to humanity.’

Devastating photos  show extensive damage to an Ohel - a traditional Jewish grave - after it was smashed open at a cemetery in North Manchester.

Other parts of the cemetery were trashed or destroyed after vandals wreaked havoc at Philips Park Jewish cemetery in Whitefield on Sunday.

The despicable acts were blasted by officers from GMP who described the perpetrators as ‘scumbags.’

A tweet by GMP Prestwich said: “I hope the scumbags who desecrated a graveyard in Whitefield are proud!

“You are a complete disgrace to humanity!

“This is not what the community of Whitefield are about or accept.

“Anyone with info particularly about anyone trying to offload copper piping should contact us.”

The grave is believed to have belonged to a former Manchester Rabbi, according to the Jewish Telegraph.

North-west Rabbi, Shmuli Brown condemned the attack, calling the vandals ‘cowards.’

We can thank Jew hater Jerry Corbin and his alt-left drek brigade, including the Ocasio- Cortez monster in US Congress for this. Anti-Israel alt-yidden deserve credit too.

You are right about that. But your kind also bear responsibility. Your support of the most militant and vile Zionist positions rile up these dreks.

Why don't 6ou all start blaming yourselves. Our generation of frum Jews are despicable in soo many ways it has come time for God to show us who is boss. The gaavah the money worshipping the idol worshippers etc.

Jews for Jesus
Jews for Nachman
SEE A DIFFERENCE????

We are as bad as the generations in which the beis hamikdash was destroyed if not 10x worse. I saw an add about a sheitel macher selling dolls with wigs. We have become a disgrace. My wife is a geyores and so I have met several geirim recently and they all said: "we love hashem and the jewish religion but had we met monsey and Brooklyn Jews prior to converting, We would never convert."

You are terrible and need to change otherwise this will get worse and the slaughtering of your children will be in vain.

I strongly disagree that "[you] should all start blaming yourselves" and that "[w]e are as bad as the generations in which the beis hamikdash was destroyed if not 10x worse".

First, there is zero excuse to desecrate a cemetery. Period. All the more so when the person buried there was a righteous man.

Next, the generation of the beis haMikdash was in an entirely different league than we are. You're talking about the people (angels, relatively speaking) whose Torah we study in the gemara and who spoke to (real) angels, resuscitated the dead, etc. So what can be expected of them does not remotely connote what can be expected of us.

As well, Lashon HaRa is a serious sin. While it is certainly possible that you met some Jews, from those neighborhoods, whom you felt should have had better/different standards or the like, still, to imply that this goes for entire neighborhoods is probably not very appropriate and very possibly Lashon haRa.

Finally, rabbis have stated that our generation faces some of the greatest spiritual challenges ever! Secular society today is likely on the level of the generation of the flood! Yet we still strive to stay true to Hashem and also do so much good...

Until they catch who did it, how can you blame anyone. It could be right wing skinheads, it could be left wing anti semites, it could be drunk hooligans who are stam anti semittic, it could be Muslims living in Britain.
