Brooklyn hate pamphleteer strikes again

from The Brooklyn Paper: Another sick call to ‘KILL JEWS’:

...Sixth Avenue in Park Slope was littered with strips of papers reading “KILL JEWS” in capital letters from Fourth to Ninth streets on Wednesday.

Nearly two dozen of the strips were picked up by Karen Guilbert, who had just finished walking her daughter to school.

“It’s so ignorant and hateful,” said Guilbert, who picked up a handful of the same slips back in October. “There are hundreds of kids that walk up and down this street.”

Earlier incidents of the same sick message being spread along Brooklyn streets were reported in Brooklyn Heights, Boerum Hill, Clinton Hill and Bay Ridge in September and October. In those incidents, kids walking home from school found hundreds of the handwritten slips of paper reading "Kill Jews" spread along the sidewalk for several blocks and on car windshields. A synagogue and several cars and apartment buildings were daubed with swastikas around the same time in Brooklyn Heights.
