Statement Regarding the Firebombing of Two Jewish Homes in New City Last Week

The anti-Semitic acts perpetrated in New City during the course of last week are just another example of the hatred and ignorance that perpetuates such acts, not just in our community but, unfortunately, globally.

What these ignorant haters won’t acknowledge is the fact that Nazism was defeated seventy some-odd years ago and that the Jewish people will never again succumb to the acts of stupid, mean-spirited human beings. But it is our unity as a people that will assure the true meaning and the true effect of the phrase NEVER AGAIN.

Let us speak up as one strong, united community against these and all other acts of hatred and intolerance in one loud, united voice and let all know, including the authorities, that we shall not stand for such acts any more.

Let us pressure the authorities to recognize these acts for what they are and to speed their investigations and find, arrest and bring these criminals to justice, and punish them to the full extent of the law. After all, does it take a genius to determine whether exploding firecrackers or painting anti-Semitic graffiti on peaceful citizens' properties or other manifestations of HATE constitute a hate crime?

The Holocaust Museum & Center for Tolerance and Education condemns these heinous acts and urges the authorities to expeditiously find and punish these disseminators of hate. There is no place for them in a civilized community.
