A statement from the Highland Park, NJ police:

The Highland Park Police Department would like to advise you about the reported incidents of vandalism that occurred overnight on Raritan Ave.

Detectives are actively investigating these incidents and are in contact with and coordinating efforts with other law enforcement agencies that may be able to expedite the investigation.

We are currently gathering and reviewing information that may lead us to a suspect. We cannot be more specific because we do not want to jeopardize the investigation.

We would also like to briefly address the fear that these are acts motivated by anti-Semitism or that these are bias crimes. The Middlesex County Prosecutor’s Office has been notified, but it is too soon to reach a conclusion.

All of our officers are aware of the sensitivity of this situation and we will make every effort with patrols and surveillance to keep everyone safe. We would like to encourage you to communicate with your congregants and urge them to avoid speculation which could lead to unnecessary anxiety.

Here is a map of where the vandalism occurred. All of the stores are Jewish or owned by Jews. There are plenty of other stores in between.

Пару дней назад в Нью-Йорке вроде как напали на еврея, и даже поймали подонков, но прокуратура отказалась квалифицировать это как hate crime, хотя свидетели в один голос твердят, что нападавшие кричали "бей жидов".
Интересно, ваша прокуратура будет столь же "осторожна"?

Не знаю, в новостях сообщений нет, что странно. Несколько лет назад было осквернено кладбище, принадлежащее нашим синагогам. Пацанов поймали, но до суда дело не дошло, наложили штраф и community service.

когда кто-нибудь попробует взорвать мечеть, виновных непременно найдут и осудят отнюдь не на community service.

так будет продолжаться до тех пор, пока евреи не поймут, за кого голосовать на местных выборах!

Вы в точку, Артур. В мое отсутствие у нас выбрали мэром ортодоксального еврея (хоть и демократа). Я ему полностью доверяю.
