Anti-Semitism On The Rise In Florida, Nationally

Anti-Semitic behavior continues to plague the US as vandals recently etched swastikas on several cars in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood on Miami Beach, Florida.

Last week one Boca Raton, Florida resident woke up to find a swastika sprayed on the side of a park car sitting in from of their home.

Again, this problem is not Florida-centric, as 50 or so Jewish centers across the nation have also received bomb threats over the past couple of months.

Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D), the first Jewish woman elected to Congress from the sunshine state, organized a meeting at a local jewish community center in her congressional district to address anti-Semitism, where she referred to the vandals as “bastards who are terrorized people.”

I’m incredibly angry. But I’m here today to channel my anger so that we can make sure that first and foremost we find the bastards, and that we make sure that we don’t rest and there is nowhere that they think they can hide that we won’t hunt them down and find them.”-Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D) -CBS4

On the same day the swastikas were carved into cars on Miami Beach, some 100 headstones were damaged at a Philadelphia cemetery, and only a few days after 150 headstones were vandalized at a cemetery in St. Louis, Missouri.

Vice President Mike Pence was so offended by the actions at the Missouri cemetery, that he made an impromptu visit to the cemetery to condemn the vandalism.

“From the heart, there is no place in America for hatred or acts of prejudice or violence or anti-Semitism.”-Vice President Mike Pence
