Statement on Anti-Semitic Flyers Found Near West Valley Schools
I have been informed that a series of anti-Semitic flyers have been discovered in the West Valley area of the San Fernando Valley.
The flyers attempt to equate the Jewish Star with the Swastika and are filled with other vulgar, anti-Semitic language.
I know that Valley residents of all faiths condemn this hateful act and those that are responsible for disseminating these flyers around the Valley. Whether in our community, across the nation, or around the world, these types of hateful, anti-Semitic sentiments have no place in modern society.
I want to thank the Los Angeles Police Department for their prompt and professional response to this matter and especially the fact that they intend to investigate this as a hate crime. I am committed to combating all forms of hate both at home and abroad.
