New York, New York (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
An attack in a Jewish neighborhood of Brooklyn is being investigated as a New York hate crime by the New York Police Department's Hate Crimes Task Force, reported NY1 on November 12.
Vandals set three cars ablaze in Midwood on November 11. A sidewalk and park benches nearby also were spray-painted with anti-Semitic graffiti, including Nazi swastikas. "KKK" was painted on a van, according to the New York Daily News. (11/11)
“Anti-Semitism has no place in today’s world. Hate crimes are incompatible with the values of New York and the values of America,” said New York civil rights violation lawyer David Perecman, founder of The Perecman Firm, one of New York’s civil rights violation law firms.
The incident is among a number of other recent hate crimes in New York City targeting Jews. Two other swastikas were found in Brooklyn, reported the New York Daily News. One was etched into the lobby door of a building and another was painted on a parking meter. Also, reported the NYDN, a subway sign was defaced and a Jewish man recalled being “threatened by two hate-spewing men” in Midwood.
Earlier this month, six swastikas were painted on a synagogue and two library branches in Queens, reported the Queens Tribune. (11/10)
Recently, the Anti-Defamation League released a report of anti-Semitism statistics for New York City and New York State. In 2010, the ADL counted 133 anti-Semitic incidents citywide. This was one more recorded incident than the year before.
In New York City, the most anti-Semitic incidents were reported in Brooklyn, which had 53. Manhattan was next with 52, according to the ADL.
“Hate crimes are absolutely unacceptable,” said Perecman, a New York civil rights violation lawyer for over 30 years. “No one should have to fear for their safety in New York because of their religion, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, or age.”
