The perpetrator of this hate crime against a synagogue
has turned himself in – probably because his ugly mug was all over social media and his identity revealed due to Internet sleuths.
But call me a cynic.
Days after Philadelphia Police reported that an unidentified man had been caught on surveillance footage urinating on a synagogue, the suspect has been identified as Sheidali Dzhalilov.
According to authorities, the 23-year-old was charged with a slew of crimes, including ethnic intimidation, indecent exposure, institutional vandalism and open lewdness.
An updated report reveals that Dzhalilov turned himself in at 7 p.m. on Tuesday – two days after the incident.
Footage from cameras posted outside Congregation Beth Solomon showed Dzhalilov approaching the front entrance of the temple.
He flashed a profane hand gesture in the direction of the security camera before unzipping his pants and urinating on the synagogue walls and the sidewalk in front of the establishment. Police reported that he fled the scene in the passenger side of a white sedan and did not return.
The incident occurred on Sunday at 12:30 a.m.
Philadelphia Police Lt. Dennis Rosenbaum told ABC 6 the department was almost certain the attack was rooted in anti-Semitism.
Yes, thanks for that Sherlock.
Here’s something else they won’t say, but is obvious: he is not antisemitic because he is a Neo Nazi or KKK member.
Nope, I am willing to bet Mr Sheidali Dzhalilov learns his antisemitism from another place entirely.
Unless you want to claim he is only an “anti-Zionist.”
