Brooklyn D.A. Hynes Says He’s “Appalled” By Increased Anti-Semitism


charles-j-hynes-2Brooklyn, NY – The burning of several cars and the painting of swastikas is part of a pattern in Brooklyn.  People living in Brooklyn’s Orthodox Jewish communities are complaining of harassment and anti-Semitic slurs written on walls and even parking meters.

“There has been an increase in anti-Semitism, no question,” said Brooklyn district attorney Joe Hynes, who calls it appalling.

swastika-flatbush1Last week, at least three cars were set ablaze and dozens of pieces of anti-Semitic graffiti were plastered along benches in Midwood. The cars were damaged and the benches vandalized along Ocean Parkway between Avenues I and J. Among the vandalism: “KKK” scrawled nearby, as well as numerous swastikas.

“It was done intentionally,” he told WCBS 880 reporter Marla Diamond.

The incident occurred on the anniversary of Kristallnacht, when Hitler’s Nazis launched a pogrom against Jews in Germany and Austria.

Police in the 66th Precinct bolstered patrols in the neighborhood – especially the scene of the attack.

Fingerprints and DNA have been lifted from several beer bottles left at the scene and Hynes believes that thanks to forensic testing authorities are in a stronger position to find the suspects than they would have been 20 years ago.

Hynes said he doesn’t know if this is a case of repeat offenders.

On Sunday, about 100 Midwood residents joined elected officials in a march past four public benches from which 16 swastikas had been removed after the pre-dawn attack Friday.
