CNN  — The Hate Crimes Task Force of the New York Police Department is investigating several reports of antisemitic vandalism at the homes of Jewish board members of the Brooklyn Museum – including its director, a New York City law enforcement official told CNN Wednesday.

Five homes – three in Manhattan and two in Brooklyn – were vandalized Tuesday night, police said.

“We are deeply troubled by these horrible acts,” Taylor Maatman, Brooklyn Museum’s spokesperson, told CNN.

Tuesday night’s vandalism comes as the US saw the highest number of antisemitic incidents reported since The Anti-Defamation League began tracking data in 1979, according to the organization’s   annual audit   of antisemitism released in April.

NYC Comptroller Brad Lander  posted photos on X   of the vandalism Wednesday saying, “The cowards who did this are way over the line into antisemitism, harming the cause they claim to care about, and making everyone less safe.”

The images shared by Lander show the entryway of a home with its front doors and windows splattered in red paint and a sign hanging in the entrance filled with red handprints that reads, “Anne Pasternak Brooklyn Museum White Supremacist Zionist.”

Pasternak is the Brooklyn Museum’s director.

Additionally, red inverted triangles were painted on the windows and doors of the home, a symbol used by the military wing of Hamas in the recent conflict in Gaza to indicate Israeli military targets, according to the Anti-Defamation League. The symbol, sometimes used in the form of an emoji, is used in some cases to “signify support for violent Palestinian resistance against Israel.”

Proving why it is NECESSARY for a Jewish State called Israel to exist, because there were so few places for Jews to escape to during the Holocaust, and isn't it amazing that one of the very few places was Shanghai, even after the Japanese occupied it.

The Japanese refused to adopt Nazi anti-Semitic policies.  Japanese policies allowed for the survival of 18,000 Jewish refugees in Shanghai during the war.

Unfortunately I'm unable to open past the first page of the linked article, bur I was already aware that the Japanese refused to comply with Hitler's directive to kill the Jews because they were unable to understand why anyone should be murdered because of their religion.

One might not be surprised if back in those days the Jews might have had a lot more respect for Japan than for America, that turned away the S.S.St. Louis, refusing to allow the refugees to disembark, or Canada. whose Prime Miinister McKenzie King, when asked how many Jewish refugees he would allow into Canasa his infamous reply was "None is too many" which became the title of a book about those times.

Of course there are some who would justify this by saying its "an expression of 'free speech'" & protected by The Constitution.

Or: That the perps are not really anti-Semitic because they don't really hate Jews--  this is justified because of that-- and that they don't hate Jews but only hate "Zionists".

There will never be an end of antisemitism, and maybe it's good that it is now exposing itself since so many ARE antisemites deep down inside and have held it back until now because it's an opportunity to show their true colours.

In the circumstances I would consider it a declaration of my right to free speech and expression to beat the shit out of those fucking ignorant criminal vandalizing protesters.

I'm sure white supremacists will be blamed for the hate crime, instead of the pro-Hamas Nazis

Its interesting that the people who live there (Jews) are actually accused of being White supremacists.

Antisemites come in all shapes, colours and sizes, Greg.  No reason to limit them to your specific enemies.  Hey, there are even Jewish antisemites - like Noam Chomsky and Bernie Sanders.

Part of a fitting punishment for the vandals who splashed the red paint and painted symbols would be to force them to work their fucking asses off to remove the paint and/or repaint what they dirtied.  I said "part" because they deserve to suffer some depravation from the free world and maybe a little cruel and unusual punishment.

Sadly, this racism/anti semitism just keep happening. One has to wonder what in the hell is in the minds of the scum that do this. Their hate must eat them alive.

IMO it's an inherited trait.  More people harbour that sickness than allow it to be seen, but it's there and it soaks into their children from generation to generation.
