It might have been about money...

...or opportunist vandalism...

...or it might have been a very messy and clumsy bit of data theft.

Do not discount the possibility of it being all three.

Whatever the reason, for the crime of the January attack on Caracas' largest synagogue the State Prosecutors in Venezuela have filed charges against 8 police officers and 3 other persons.

It is fair to note that the government of Hugo Chavez has denounced the attack (that came shortly after Venezuela broke off diplomatic relations with Israel over Operation Cast Iron in Gaza).

It is also fair to note that both Hezbollah and Iran's Pasdaran (Army of the Guardians of the Islamic Revolution; IRGC) have a presence in Venezuela, and could put to use a list of the names and addresses of all the members of the synagogue, were it to be in their hands.
