Neo-Nazis attack Croatia Chief Rabbi outside Zagreb synagogue
Zagreb Jewish community says assault was third anti-Semitic incident to have taken place in Croatia within a week.
A group of neo-Nazis assaulted Croatia's Chief Rabbi Eliezer Aloni on a Zagreb street on Saturday.
Aloni was on his way home from synagogue when a bunch of men wearing shirts with swastikas printed on them yelled "Jews out!" in German at him.
Witnesses say the men pushed the rabbi over after he asked them if they knew the meaning of what they were shouting.
Eliezer took refuge in the Jewish community building and informed the local police.
Zagreb's Jewish community said it was the third anti-Semitic incident to have taken place in the country within a week.
On Sunday, a group of men wearing shirts of the pro-Nazi militia that governed Croatia during World War II attacked a memorial service honoring local Jews murdered by Nazis and their allies.
Last Friday, the Jewish community's offices received a phone call by an anonymous caller who threatened to assist Hamas to blow up the community's buildings.
Simeon Weisenthal Center official Efraim Zuroff, said in response to the attacks that he expected the Croatian government to take immediate action against anti-Semitism in their country.
