Anti-Semitic messages left on Jewish Agency Facebook page

The Jewish Agency for Israel's Facebook page was inundated with hundreds of explicitly anti-Israel and anti-Semitic messages.

The attacks earlier this month were confirmed Thursday by the Jewish Agency. The messages were deleted soon after they were discovered, it said.

The attack of anti-Israel and anti-Semitic messages coincided with the anniversary of the Yom Kippur War, which began on Oct. 6, 1973. Many of the message writers were Egyptian, according to the Jewish Agency.

The messages included swastikas, violent imagery and anti-Semitic messages in Arabic, English and poor Hebrew. One message read, "WE ARE COMING FOR U … JUST WAIT THE EGYPTIAN HOLOCAUST COMING VERY SOOOOOON." Another read, "May Allah help the Mujahideen in Palestine kill and destroy your nations, your people, your army." Some of the messages referred to the war as an Egyptian "victory."
