Four NY Jewish Businesses Targeted With Nazi Mail

Four Jewish businesses in New York City were targeted on Monday with anti-Semitic fliers received in the mail that included Nazi swastikas and other hateful symbols and rhetoric.

“It is disturbing that at least four Jewish-owned businesses across New York City were apparently intentionally targeted with the same piece of racist and bigoted hate mail,” the Anti-Defamation League’s New York regional director, Evan Bernstein, said in a statement. “We are monitoring this and looking into whether these fliers are connected with any particular hate group, or if they are appearing in other places around the country.”

The fliers, now being investigated by the New York Police Department, included a swastika, the words “Juden Raus” (German for “Jews Out”) and the pro-Trump slogan “Make America Great Again.”

The messages also included slurs against black and gay people.
