Spate of Antisemitism in Wisconsin

A disturbing rash of Antisemitism and vandalism unfolded in Madison, Wisconsin, over the weekend, where at least 30 homes and vehicles were spray-painted with vulgar messages including swastikas.

It’s unclear whether the messages were predominately targeted at Jewish residents and other minorities, as police are not currently considering the damages part of a hate crime investigation.

In a huge understatement a local police officer told WISC-TV, “It just looks like it’s malicious damage…. While some of the things painted were troubling, we don’t know that was specifically targeted to a particular victim.”

Some, though, like Jim Stein, a local resident who is the president of the Jewish Federation of Madison, believes the entire thing “reeks of anti-Semitism.”
