The home of a prominent atheist professor in Jerusalem was vandalized this morning. The apparent hate crime was committed, it seems, by religious zealots who want to stop him from destroying the faith of the Israeli people.

He’s been a secular activist for the past 50 years, and an organizational leader for the past 20.
