An alarming graffiti was discovered at a contested construction site alongside the Brooklyn Botanic Garden that has been associated with Jewish developers.
The writing “Spermo says kill you landlord” was painted on the site located on Montgomery Street and Franklin Avenue between Crown Heights and Park Slope.
As reported on COLlive.com, the Movement To Protect The People and its head Alicia Boyd are battling the rezoning of the properties and used Stars of David to incidate the corporations that purchased the sites.
An email sent by the group on Thursday, September 5, 2019, accuses both real estate developers, community leaders and elected officials of “Shady Business Deals” and “Shell Games.”
The email placed a blue Star of David near the real estate corporations allegedly owned by Jews: Carroll Development Plaza LLC, 931 Carroll LLC, CP VI Crown Heights LLC, and Cornell Crow LLC.
Geoffrey Davis, Democratic District Leader for the 43rd Assembly District, called on Boyd to “address her intentions publicly and apologize.” Devorah Halberstam, co-founder of the Jewish Children’s Museum in Brooklyn, said: “The underlying objective in this is nothing but clear anti-semitism disguised as community interest.”
Jewish community activist Yaacov Behrman said: “I see no other reason to use a blue star other than to send a coded message that the developers are Jewish. Such imagery directly contributes to violence against Jews.”
