Exiled Libyan claims synagogue efforts blocked


TRIPOLI, Libya: A Libyan Jewish man who returned from exile in Italy to join the revolution against Muammar Qaddafi has been blocked from trying to restore Tripoli’s main synagogue.

David Gerbi said he went to clean garbage from the synagogue on Monday, a day after he broke through the entrance with a sledgehammer to great fanfare. A messenger at the scene warned him, however, that armed men were coming from all over Libya and would target him if he did not leave the area.
