(New York Jewish Week) – The Brooklyn office of Rep. Daniel Goldman was defaced with pro-Palestinian graffiti, as antisemitic crimes surge in New York during the war between Israel and Hamas in Gaza.
Vandals scrawled the phrases “Blood on ur hands,” “Free Palestine,” and “Let Gaza live” in red and white paint on the facade of the Jewish Democratic congressman’s office on 9th Street in Park Slope, as well as on the sidewalk in front of it.
A spokesperson for Goldman said a staffer arrived at the office around 8:50 a.m. Friday morning, Nov. 17, to find police already on the scene.
Security footage showed at least two people defacing the building. However, the perpetrators put a plastic bag over the camera so the images were unclear, Goldman’s office said.
