Earlier this month, the Jewish Agency for Israel’s (JAFI) Facebook page was attacked, with the assailants posting hundreds of overtly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic remarks on the page.

The assault occurred on October 6th, the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War which began on October 6, 1967. According to the Jewish Agency many of perpetrators were Egyptian.

The violent messages were multi lingual, with the attackers hurling anti-Semitic insults in English, Arabic and Hebrew. Posts included things like “WE ARE COMING FOR U … JUST WAIT THE EGYPTIAN HOLOCAUST COMING VERY SOOOOOON.” And “May Allah help the Mujahideen in Palestine kill and destroy you nations, your people, your army.”

The Jewish Agency removed the vicious posts as soon as they were discovered.
