  • From swastikas to bomb threats, anti-Jewish incidents on record-setting track

    Boston Globe - 04/24/2017

    Jack McDevitt, director of the Institute on Race and Justice at Northeastern University, said the report documents what he, too, has been finding.

    “There has been a rebirth of anti-Semitism associated with electoral politics, both in Europe and in hate groups in the United States,” he said.

    McDevitt said traffickers in hate focus on any target that is available, including people of color, Muslims, and those who are gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender. But Jewish people and organizations may bear a larger brunt of the offenses because synagogues and Jewish cemeteries are easy to find, and Swastikas easy to paint, he said.
