Shops in Westchester County, New York, Tagged With Antisemitic Graffiti

2024-01-26 06:00:15

Two businesses, including a Jewish-owned ice cream shop in Westchester County, New York, were recently tagged with spray-painted graffiti that said “genocide supporters.” This is the district of far-left ‘squad’ member Jamaal Bowman.

This happened at a shopping center directly across the street from a Jewish community center.

The New York Post reports:

NY shopping center blasted with ‘genocide supporter’ graffiti across from Jewish Community Center

A suburban shopping center in Westchester County was blasted with antisemitic graffiti overnight, with Gov. Kathy Hochul saying the incident has the community ‘traumatized.’

Cops are looking for a lone vandal who painted “genocide supporter” on the window of two stores at the Golden Horseshoe Shopping Center in New Rochelle, across from the JCC of Mid-Westchester, with surveillance video catching the culprit in the act,” CBS-TV News reporter Tony Aiello said in a post on X.

Speaking at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan Thursday, Hochul said she planned to speak to Westchester DA Miriam Rocah about the incident.

“I’m going to talk to her about something that she just experienced as a district attorney because just overnight there were horrific images and hateful speech scrawled on the front of Jewish businesses here between New Rochelle and Scarsdale,” she said.

“And the community is traumatized,” Hochul added. “You may think they’re only words on a sign or across a storefront, but it tears at you as a human being when you know that attack-full message, that hateful message, is meant for you.”

Security camera footage obtained by CBS shows the vandal, wearing an unzipped hoodie and dark pants, scrawling the hate message on the storefront in the middle of the night.

Here’s a video report from CBS News in New York:

AIPAC Donor Urges Jewish Republicans to Switch Parties to Vote Against Jamaal Bowman in Primary

Members OF Young Israel of New Rochelle synagogue in suburban Westchester County, New York, received an email Thursday afternoon from a group of congregants.

“We are all looking to do what we can to help Israel in its time of need,” the email said. “I am part of a group in our shul which is focused on one singular thing we can all do—and that is helping to defeat our current Congressman Jamaal Bowman in the Democratic primary which will take place on June 25, 2024.”

Bowman, whose New York district includes the Bronx and parts of Westchester County, is being targeted in his primary next year for criticisms of Israel and calls for a ceasefire in its war against Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. His challenger, Westchester County Executive George Latimer, is being backed by pro-Israel groups, including the influential American Israel Public Affairs Committee…

“If you are a registered Republican voter, you are not eligible to vote in the all-important Democratic primary,” says Harris’s email, a copy of which was obtained by The Intercept. “It is critically important that if you are a registered Republican, at least for this election you should re-register as a Democrat so you can vote in the primary (against Bowman).”

The squad has an anti-Semitism problem, and the word is out among people who probably don’t even follow politics very closely.
