‘Hitler was right’ posters plastered on California synagogue

Antisemitic posters were placed in front of the Shalom Le Israel synagogue in Carmichael, California, on Wednesday, the Sacramento County Sheriff’s Office told ABC 10.
Posters from the neo-Nazi group Aryan Nation depicting Adolf Hitler with the words “Hitler was right” were put on a menorah and on the front of the synagogue.
Sacramento County police responded to a call from members of the congregation at 5:50 PM local time on Wednesday, according to local news ABC 10. Authorities are investigating the incident as a hate crime.
According to Rabbi Boris Tsiprush, the synagogue has been targeted multiple times before the latest incident. A trailer in the parking lot was set on fire, the inside of the building was intentionally flooded and someone vandalized a sign with writing that said “death to Israel.” Additionally, bags of rice containing flyers from a white supremacist group were left on multiple properties in the vicinity of the synagogue several weeks ago, and police are looking into the possibility that this is connected to the most recent crime, KCRA 3 reported.
