[Ed. – Your daily dose of anti-Semitism on the rise.]
A crude Nazi swastika and the words “No Jews” scrawled in blue paint were found by a Brooklyn woman walking in Prospect Park – a disturbing hate message that comes in a year the city has already notched a shocking increase in anti-Semitic hate crimes.
Shoshana Dornhelm, 32, of Park Slope, told the Daily News she came across the revolting graffiti around 1:30 p.m. Saturday in the heart of the sprawling park, spray-painted on a brick wall beneath a bridge overpass on Center Drive, in the center of the park.
Dornhelm, who often walks in the park, immediately reported the damage to 311.
The hate message was gone on Sunday. A spokesman for the NYPD said the incident is being investigated.
“[I’m] really upset, because of the act itself and because it feels so normalized now,” she told The News, blaming “the general political climate.”
