Spokane community building vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti


(JTA) — A building housing community support services and non-profit groups in downtown Spokane, Washington was vandalized with anti-Semitic graffiti.

The epithets written in chalk on the side of the building were discovered on Friday morning.

Among the anti-Semitic statements were: “Hitler did nothing wrong,” “Gas the Kikes,” and “Juden Raus,” German for Jews Out. The graffiti also called for a “race war now.”

Interns for the Peace and Justice Action League of Spokane, which is housed in the building, first discovered the graffiti, the Spokesman-Review newspaper reported on Saturday.

The incident was reported to police and the graffiti was covered up, according to the newspaper. Organizations housed in the building said they would remain and continue their work.

Racist and anti-Semitic White Nationalist flyers were posted on the building last month.
