Gottheimer Statement on Swastika Found in Mahwah

Mar 07, 2017

Today, Congressman Josh Gottheimer (NJ-5) released the following statement on the swastika recently found in Mahwah, New Jersey:

“I was briefed by the Mayor of Mahwah earlier today. I’m pleased that local law enforcement launched an immediate investigation to get to the bottom of this despicable vandalism. Such hatred, targeted at any group or religion, has no place in our society. As someone who has been the target of antisemitism, I know that, unfortunately, this is but one incident in a much broader problem plaguing our country. It must not be swept under the rug. Unfortunately, antisemitism and discrimination are alive and well in the 21st Century. Leaders must stand up and confront the rising trend of hate against any ethnic or religious group — Jewish, Christian, Muslim, or otherwise.”
