Anti-Semitism Top Reported Crime on Subway

Transit officials say anti-Semitic graffiti incidents are the top subway bias crime investigated so far this year by the New York Police Department.

from the NY Daily News:

In a report to the MTA board, Transit Bureau Assistant Chief Vincent Coogan said 22 of 31 hate crimes that happened in the subway targeted Jews, mainly through graffiti.

Last year, over the same period, only seven bias crimes total in the subway were reported.

But this year, a rash of swastikas and comments that advocate the killing of Jews have been spotted on train cars and in stations.

    On a positive note: Even though The fight for Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems difficult.
    We need to remember what it was like to fight for yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

    And with the Rebbe’s guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.
