WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Thursday, February 15, 2024, in front of U.S. Congressman Josh Gottheimer’s office, an antisemitic individual vandalized the poster of an innocent civilian who was kidnapped by Hamas terrorists and has since been rescued.

The poster is of Adina Moshe who is 72 years old and was violently kidnapped on a motorcycle from her home on October 7. Thankfully, after 49 days in Gaza, Adina was freed. Adina’s husband, Sa’id David Moshe, was killed by Hamas terrorists. 

“This is a truly deprived and heinous act. To vandalize the poster of an innocent civilian who was violently ripped from her home as Hamas terrorists shot and murdered her husband is nothing less than a blatant act of antisemitism and hate,” said Congressman Josh Gottheimer. “I have submitted a request to Capitol Police for video of the individual responsible. I refuse to be silent in the face of this horrific behavior which only serves to perpetuate and amplify the skyrocketing levels of antisemitism across our nation.”

On October 7, Hamas terrorists brutally murdered, burned, raped, decapitated, and kidnapped more than 1,200 people, including Americans. Today, more than 130 remain hostage inside Gaza including six Americans.
