Motorcyclist Dumps Anti-Semitic Fliers In Jewish Williamsburg

Image by twitter

A man driving through Brooklyn’s Williamsburg neighborhood Thursday night littered numerous anti-Semitic posters, in an incident that the New York Police Department is now investigating.

“It’s bad. This is the middle of Williamsburg, this is the heart of the community,” Moses Bondo told DNAInfo. Williamsburg is home to a large Hasidic Jewish community, in addition to its reputation as a hipster capital.

Authorities said the incident took place on the intersection of Lee Avenue and Rodney Street, and that the motorist wore a dark black helmet. His fliers contained swastikas, as well as a cartoon examining the “Holocaust myth.”

New York has witnessed a marked rise in hate crimes – especially against Jews and Muslims – since last November’s election of President Trump.
