Miami Beach Family’s Cars Hit With Swastikas

Swastikas and a hate message were drawn on the cars of a Jewish family in Miami Beach, Florida.

The words “F— Jews” and a swastika were discovered on Sunday morning, according to local reports.

“It’s scary that you live in such a world where you’re kind of like scared to be Jewish, that any moment this person can come back,” Daniella Fields, who first noticed the messages, told the local Channel 10.

“My family all perished in the Holocaust. My grandma’s entire family, she was the only survivor of everybody,” said her mother Esther Fields. “To wake up with a swastika on my car … it’s very concerning.”

Last July, the words “Hamas” and “Jew” were written on cars in cream cheese and on the North Miami Beach Congregation Torah V’Emunah.

In February, hate messages appeared on homes, mailboxes and fences in Miami Gardens. There were several incidents last year, including one in September where a swastika and the letters “KKK” appeared on a temporary sign at Temple Emanu-el, the oldest Conservative Jewish congregation in Miami Beach. Temple Emanuel in Miami Beach also was vandalized earlier this year.
