‘Jews want a race war’ sign hung on busy L.A. highway overpass
(JTA) — A sign with the phrase “The Jews Want A Race War” was hung from the heavily trafficked Los Angeles interstate 405 highway overpass on Saturday.
In some photos of it posted on social media, the sign is accompanied by another publicizing a white supremacist website. The site includes a video of supporters standing on the overpass with the signs.
The website states that “All members of the community and wider society should be treated as equals with the same rights, regardless of their race, age, sex, religion, political beliefs, or any other immutable attribute or self assigned designation UNLESS YOU’RE A JEW or THE SHABBOS EQUIVALENT.”
The Los Angeles office of the Anti-Defamation League tweeted that it is aware of the banner and is working with local police to identify the perpetrators.
We’re aware of the #antisemitic banner drops from over the weekend on the 405 Fwy. We’ve been working closely with law enforcement to identify the perpetrators. We want to thank community members for contacting us & continue to encourage reporting. Los Angeles is #NoPlaceforHate. pic.twitter.com/V6qiEbcsD7
