Another Day, Another Swastika Found In Boro Park
Less than two weeks after a collection of swastikas were found spray-painted on several buildings in the Jewish Orthodox neighborhood of Boro Park, the hate-vandals appear to have struck again.
The latest swastika was found painted on a car outside of the offices of Hamodia, a Hebrew newspaper located at 207 Foster Avenue.
This is now the seventh swastika found in Boro Park in less than two weeks -- which has prompted Assemblyman Dov Hikind to offer a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest.
Earlier this month, it's suspected that the same creeps spray-painted a swastika on the side of a synagogue, also in Boro Park. It was discovered the next day by two Orthodox Jews who'd gone to the temple to pray.

Aside from the synagogue, swastikas also have been discovered scribbled on the side of a deli, a school, and other buildings in the neighborhood.
At several of the locations, surveillance cameras captured two men -- who appear to be in their 20s -- spray-painting the buildings.
So, if you're the ass-clowns tagging buildings with swastikas, knock it off. If you know the ass-clowns tagging buildings with swastikas, call the cops.
