Anti-Jewish Leaflets Distributed on Cars in Chicago

Leaflets promoting anti-Jewish sentiments and threatening action if Israel didn’t pull out of Gaza were found on cars in a Chicago neighborhood this weekend.

According to The Chicago Tribune, the anti-Jewish leaflets were found on about six cars in the Pulaski Park neighborhood, on the northwest side of the city. Detectives with the Chicago Police Department are investigating, and the Hate Crime unit was notified.

A commenter on a Yeshiva World article said they understood from talking to people in the neighborhood that more than six cars had the leaflets on them.

“When I heard about it on Shabbos, it sounded like a lot more than six cars had the signs on them. It also sounded like it wasn’t just that one block,” the commenter wrote. “I was actually talking to someone who had one of the notes on her car. She said it was so eerie and frightening.”

The leaflets were distributed just one day after a “die-in” was held in Chicago, drawing thousands of people, to protest fighting in Gaza, NBC Chicago said.

At the die-in, protesters laid on the ground, appearing dead, while hundreds of people gathered around them.

"Since the offensive began, almost 400 Palestinian people have been killed and many more wounded," Hatem Abudayyeh of the U.S. Palestine Community Network told NBC Chicago. “Almost 400 homes have been destroyed, thousands displaced. This is not a war against Palestine, it is a war on Palestine. I really hope there can be peace."

Anti-Semitic protests are occurring globally. On Sunday, the J-Wire reported that an anti-Israel rally in Sydney drew people carrying placards that weren’t just in support of Palestine but were blatantly anti-Jewish.
