The three – a Greek aged 24 and two Britons aged 33 and 23 respectively –were scheduled to appear Friday before the prosecutor, local media report. Two US citizens are also wanted by police in connection with the attacks.

A total of 2,500 books were destroyed in two fires, some of them quite rare, according to the director of the synagogue, Hanaan Nikos Stavroulakis, who called the authorities to act against such anti-Semitic and racist acts.

The Etz Hayyim Synagogue is the only remaining one on Crete, and the Jewish community in Hania was wiped out during the Second World War.

    Lots of devious misinformation going on re. this crime. Raven is another Cretan candidate for MENSA. is that an oxymoron ? (He has trouble with his grammar aswell poor chap. Shouldn’t really criticize another’s language skills. I am not that crash hot at Greek myself. The only word I know is “fakelis”. Something to do with hospitals ???) Trying to blame the bombing on the evil imperial powers of NATO and the US. A little too obvious, but a good trick for young players. The interesting perpetrator is the 24 y.o. from Iraklion who was aided, inspired and supported by people from afar. His identity is now known, poor boy…Ditto his foreign connections. Time and justice catches up with everyone.

    Through dylsexia we will salary raw.

    G-d loves truth !

    You didn’t mention the two americans that were also involved. All five people work for the NATO base in Crete
    All this was revealed in cooperation with Mossad.

    Get your facts straight before you start defaming Greece and Greek people. As it turns out all this was orchestrated by british and american agents like many other things that happen to Greece with the aim of damaging the countries image.

    The Jews of Greece are aware of all this.
