"Watch your children"
While the spineless, gutless Toronto Board of Rabbis busies itself still in continuing to condemn my work in defense of Jews, Jewish people are under seige. Just last week, another dhimmi Rabbi went kapo in the Toronto Star. Right on the heels of three anti-Semitic attacks in Montreal, and now this.
A Toronto residence is the focus of a hate crime investigation after a family discovered their garage had been defaced with hate symbols and threatening messages.
Police were called Thursday morning to a residence belonging to an Orthodox Jewish family with several young children.
The woman, who has asked not to be identified, told CTV News Friday that her husband noticed a large swastika and hate message scrawled on their garage door when he went to take out the garbage.
The family soon realized the perpetrators had also entered the unlocked garage, defacing their property even further with threatening messages and more swastikas -- one was drawn on a child’s high chair.
“We feel terribly violated,” the woman said in an interview Friday. “The first time it was on the window of a car that was right at the front of the driveway, now it was already making their way into my property.”
The woman said it’s the second time in weeks their property has been targeted. The couple found a swastika drawn on the inside window of their car, which had been left unlocked overnight.
After seeing the vandalism, the family called police. Officers canvassed the neighbourhood and collected evidence on Friday.
“We treat this very seriously and we want to catch these people and put them behind bars,” said Sgt. Lawrence Sager.
Avi Benlolo, the president of the Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Centre for Holocaust Studies, also visited the home today to help the family.
“You look at the graffiti and the threatening language that’s been placed in a residential neighbourhood and you have to ask yourself: why would anyone do such a thing,” Benlolo said.
He said anti-Semitic acts have been on the rise lately, noting a recent firebombing incident in Montreal.
Though the family says they have been left shaken by the incidents, they are pleased police are taking the matter seriously.
“We are obviously not immune being here in Toronto, but at the same time it should not and cannot be tolerated,” the woman said.
