More hate graffiti found in Brooklyn

Police are investigating three new incidents of anti-Semitic hate crimes in Brooklyn over the weekend.

On Saturday, residents in the heavily Jewish neighborhood of Midwood discovered the message “Die Jews” written alongside three black swastikas on a garage door. The hate graffiti was scrawled less than 100 feet from the home of N.Y. Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

Across the street, two swastikas were also found spray painted on the door of an apartment building.
And on Sunday morning, two more swastikas were found on a Jewish school on Ocean Parkway, according to reports.

These are only the latest hate-crime incidents in New York: A group is suspected of tagging four stores along Sixth Avenue with swastikas last week.

A swastika was also discovered at the Kent Village Housing site last week in a predominantly Jewish section of Williamsburg, according to Councilman Steve Levin. Some residents of the housing complex are Holocaust survivors, and they were appalled to see the swastikas, according to Rabbi David Niederman, director of the United Jewish Organizations of Williamsburg.

In an unrelated incident, police announced yesterday they arrested David Haddad, 56, and charged him with making various anti-Semitic threats to his mother and other elderly women in Manhattan following a family business dispute. Haddad, who is Jewish, was charged with a hate crime.
