Pipe bomb thrown at Caracas Jewish Community Center

Israel Radio has just reported that a pipe bomb was thrown at the Jewish Community Center in Caracas, Venezuela today. No one was hurt but there was property damage. Israel Radio did not give any more details.

I found this report from al-AP:
Representatives of Venezuela's Jewish population say a community center has been attacked by unidentified assailants who threw an explosive at the building.

Abraham Garzon is president of the Jewish Community Center located in downtown Caracas. He says a small explosive resembling a pipe bomb was lobbed at the building before dawn. The explosion damaged the doors to the center, but nobody was injured by the blast.

On January 31, a Caracas synagogue was vandalized. Venezuela broke diplomatic relations with Israel last month over Operation Cast Lead and President Thuggo Chavez is considered a close ally of Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

These are the consequences of the antisemitic feelling that is being spread by official and semi-official news agencies and websites.
