Anti-Semitic Graffiti Scrawled On Home For Sale


THE ROCKLAND COUNTY DEALING WITH ANTI-SEMITIC GRAFFITI. APPARENTLY AIMED AT A WOULD-BE HOME BUYER. CBS 2’S LOU YOUNG WITH THE STORY. Reporter: THE VANDALIZED HOUSE ON WOOD-RIDGE ROAD IS VACANT AND FOR SALE. SOMEONE IS CONCERNED ABOUT WHO MIGHT MOVE IN. ON THE WALL SPRAY-PAINTED IN LARGE LETTERING NO JEWS. Reporter: THE VANDAL OR VANDALS CAME FROM THE BACKYARD THE WOODED AREA OVER HERE AND THEY MARKED UP THE BACK OF THE HOUSE WITH THEIR SPRAY-PAINT HERE AND OVER HERE, TOO. AND ENTERED THROUGH THE BASEMENTS. YOU CAN SEE THE BROKEN WINDOW THERE. THE MESSAGE WAS CLEARLY FOR A SERIOUS BUYER. DISRESPECTFUL. I DON’T WANT THAT ESPECIALLY NEXT DOOR. Reporter: JIM LIVES NEXT DOOR AND IS APPALLED AT THE APPARENT CRIME BUT MINDFUL OF THE FEAR THAT MIGHT HAVE MOTIVATED IT. Reporter: THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT WHAT’S GOING ON. CULTURE GROUP COMING IN. Reporter: ULTRA-ORTHODOX JEWISH COMMUNITIES TO THE SOUTH HAVE HAD ISSUES WITH UNDERFUNDED PUBLIC EDUCATION AND BUILDING AND FIRE INSPECTIONS, BARUCH WEINER WAS INSPECTING THE HOME ON TUESDAY FOR AN ORTHODOX JEWISH BUYER WHEN HE DISCOVERED THE GRAFFITI. HOW’S IT MAKE YOU FEEL? UM, IT WAS PROBABLY DONE BY A YOUNG KID THAT DIDN’T THINK WHAT HE IS DOING. Reporter: THE TOWN SUPERVISOR AND THE HEAD OF ROCKLAND’S UNITED JEWISH FEDERATION ARE FAR LESS CHARITABLE. HATE SPEECH IS HATE SPEECH. IF IT’S AIMED AT ONE POPULATION TODAY, IT WILL BE AIMED AT ANOTHER POPULATION TOMORROW. THERE HAVE BEEN INCIDENTS IN NEW CITY, RAMAPO AND PEARL RIVER. NOW HAVERSTRAW. A DEEPLY TROUBLING TREND! HERE WE ARE A ON MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND, AND WE’RE TALKING ABOUT SOMEBODY WHO REALLY IS DISCRIMINATING AGAINST A RACE WHEN WE HAD A WHOLE GENERATION OF MEN WHO WENT OUT AND FOUGHT A WAR AGAINST THIS TYPE OF FAR, I WAS ATTITUDE. Reporter: SOMETHING WORTH REMEMBERING IN THE TOWN OF HAVERSTRAW ROCKLAND COUNTY LOU YOUNG, CBS 2 NEWS. THE ANTI-DEFAMATION LEAGUE
