Leaflets Left on Chicago Cars Threatening Violence against Jews
Anti-Jewish pamphlets were found on several cars in Chicago’s Pulaski Park neighborhood over the weekend, the Chicago Tribune reports.
Local residents told authorities that the leaflets threatened violent retaliation against Jewish residents if Israeli forces don’t withdraw from Gaza, where they’re currently engaged in a ground operation. The leaflets were left on six vehicles’ windshields, according to Chicago police officer Jose Estrada.
Large numbers of Chicagoans protested against the conflict in Gaza this past Sunday, ending the march in front of the city’s Israeli consulate, where protesters chants of “Free Palestine!” could be heard.
The Hate Crime unit of the Chicago Police Department is said to be investigating the leaflets
