Giant Swastika Sprayed on Kingsbridge, Bronx Center of Israel Synagogue

The Center of Israel synagogue in Kingsbridge, Bronx.

A four square foot Nazi swastika was spray painted in black across the front wall of the Kingsbridge Center of Israel synagogue, in Bronx, New York, the New York Post reported on Wednesday.

The Post said the “disturbing discovery” was made by the synagogue’s president at 8:30 AM on Monday when he arrived at the building after locking up at 6 PM the night before.

As of Tuesday evening, police were still canvassing the area for surveillance video, but no arrests had been made. Further comment from the shul’s rabbi was not available immediately.

Separately, the Post also reported that the New York Police Department’s Hate Crime Task Force is investigating anti-Semitic graffiti scrawled on a Lower East Side apartment door.

Law-enforcement sources told the newspaper that the female victim, 50, lives in the Baruch Houses, on Columbia Street, and found the words “Jewish bitch” written in pencil on her door at around 11 AM on Saturday.

The woman has been targeted by a similar attack in the past, and police told the Post that they believe the hateful messages may be the result of a longstanding dispute with a neighbor, the newspaper said.

  • To the NY media and NYPD, now under orders of the sandinista to pretend Jew hate doesn’t exist, this is nothing more then a blotter report! This was one of 2 significant Anti-Jew attacks today – that we know of. The ADL will, of course, allege they were both just juvenile pranks and do not mount to the level of Antisemitism! the sandinista is with sharpton letting him know that if “an obama 35 years ago” is in any way arrested they will both scream ‘racial profiling.’

    FACT: Anti-Jew attacks in NYC have been skyrocketing since 2009, including the “knockout game” attacks that the NY Times, the ADL, the sandinista, and Holder all call “urban legend” (unless of course the victims are black at which point they become hate crimes).

    FACT: The Anti-Jew attacks will continue to skyrocket, with the eventuality that NYC will soon become the first judenrein city in the country

    FACT: Given the sandinista deblasio’s history in nicaragua, there will be a concerted series of political attacks on Jews, to be followed by physical attacks since under deblasio, his new NYPD commissioner, and his senior adviser sharpton, attacking Jews will be deemed “social justice.”
