Police: Man Made Anti-Semitic Calls to Mom

Suspect May Also Be Behind Swastika Graffiti, Report Says

The common refrain “call your mother, she worries” doesn’t refer to the kinds of calls that one Manhattan man is suspected of making.

David Haddad, who was arrested January 16, is alleged to have made anti-Semitic calls to three elderly women, including his 80-year-old mother. “All Jews should die and go to hell,” he reportedly said to his mother, a Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn resident, when she answered the phone on one occasion last month, The New York Post reports.

According to the Post, police also suspect Haddad, who was raised Jewish, may be responsible for spray-painting swastikas — one accompanied by the words “Die Jews” — in the heavily Orthodox neighborhood of Midwood, Brooklyn on January 14. He has not been charged in connection to the anti-Semitic graffiti.
