News Philadelphia Screenshot Desecration at Philadelphia's Mount Carmel Jewish Cemetery in Wissinoming

ABC affiliate reporter on the scene described dozens of headstones pushed over, if not more than a hundred.

New Jersey resident Aaron Mallin told 6ABC that he traveled to the Mt. Carmel Cemetery Sunday to visit his father's grave, but was met with a sad sight.

Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon called the damage reported in Philadelphia "shocking and a source of worry".

Australia's Sunday penalty rates will be slashed
FWC president Iain Ross said the goal of penalty rates should not be to deter businesses, arguing it increase employment. The decision was instantly slammed by union groups as an attack on the lowest-paid workers in society.

"It's just very disheartening that such a thing would take place", Mallin said. It's not clear exactly how many graves were damaged, but a spokesperson for the police said they believe the number is somewhere between 75 - 100 headstones.

"I'm hoping it was maybe just some drunk kids", he said.

More than 75 headstones were vandalized at a Jewish cemetery in Philadelphia just two weeks after a similar incident in another part of the city, officials said Sunday. Gov. Eric Greitens, the state's first Jewish governor, called the vandalism "cowardly" and "a pitiful act of ugliness".

Moody's suggested that Unilever could run a €10bn (£844bn) share buyback over 2017-2019, with little impact on debt and earnings. The forecast of 10 surveyed investment analysts covering the stock advises investors to Buy stake in the company.

"We are sickened, sickened, sickened", the center said in a statement.

In addition to the vandalism at the Jewish cemeteries, there were also instances of anti-Semitic vandalism at Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, and in a suburb of Buffalo, New York, over the past week.

"In light of the bomb scares, online harassment, physical vandalism, death threats and other hate crimes, there is a simple question at hand that Americans of all faiths deserve an answer to - what is the Trump Administration going to do about the recent surge of anti-Semitism?"
