Swastikas And Anti-Semitic Graffiti Spray-Painted On Long Island High School

(JTA) — Swastikas and other anti-Semitic graffiti were found spray-painted on a Long Island, New York, high school.

The walls, doors and windows in the back of Syosset High were vandalized between 2 a.m. and 4 a.m. Sunday, Nassau Police told the local media.

In addition to the anti-Semitic graffiti, “MS13” was painted on the school building. MS-13 is a Salvadoran-based street gang that has been blamed for more than 20 killings on Long Island in the past year and a half.

Syosset Board of Education trustee Joshua Lafazan in a statement condemning the graffiti said he would call for increased security patrols at all school district buildings.
