Anti-vaccine posters that featured a Star of David on them were discovered in at least two Los Angeles-area locations this week, including pasted to an electrical box outside a synagogue.
The first was found outside the Baba Sale Congregation and showed the letters “A” and “V” overlapping to form a Star of David. The same poster was found in front of a building affiliated with Cedar-Sinai Medical Center. Both fliers said, “Report Anti-Vaxxers, because you care and they don’t,” and included a telephone number that, according to a local media outlet, went to a restaurant in Hollywood.
The Baba Sale synagogue is no stranger to hateful messages; in 2019, vandals spray-painted “Free Palestine” on the building’s exterior.
Magen Am—a nonprofit, armed security patrol in the heavily Jewish Los Angeles neighborhoods made up of former Israel Defense Forces and U.S. military veterans—has been in touch with the local police and has moved around its patrol to “cover additional daytime hours, as much of this has been happening in broad daylight,” according to Leibel Mangel, the group’s executive director.
The anti-vax posters were the most recent incident of anti-Jew hatred tied to COVID-19. Just this weekend, people in nearby Beverly Hills and Pasadena found fliers on their front yards from the virulently anti-Semitic Goyim Defense League, that claimed Jews are responsible for or profiting from the pandemic. They were among hundreds of people in eight states across the country who also received those hate-filled fliers.
It was the second time in as many months that such fliers were left in Beverly Hills, which is “one of the only Jewish-majority cities outside of Israel,” according to local officials….
The above comes from a Dec. 27 story by the Jewish News Syndicate.
Let us hope and pray this is not a continuation of the rise of anti-Semitic activities that have occurred in the recent past. It seems some people want scapegoats to blame. In the case of the ongoing pandemic, it seems Jews and the unvaccinated are being targeted. This type of reporting one’s neighbors is tragically reminiscent of the Third Reich and Communist totalitarianism.

Hard to tell just whom these posters are meant to troll….Jews for being ‘anti-vaxers”? Jews for wanting to inform on “anti-vaxers’? Going to guess not a lot of intellectual horse-power in the organizers of this campaign…
As white nationalists seem to be greatly in the anti-vax camp, one could make the mistake looking at the posters that they’re locking arms with their anti-vax Jewish brethren…
Mark, since you claim “white nationalists seem to be greatly in the anti-vax camp,” do you actually know any white nationalists?
I’ve never met one. It seems they’re often straw men set up for bashing and guilt by association rather than engaging in debate about some subjects. (I’m not denying they exist, but they’re an extremely small minority.) On the other hand, I do know several real people who are Jews or unvaccinated. I hope we can move forward toward solutions to our problems and not continue to argue about who is blame. (If blame is to be placed, then, we need to honestly look at the Chinese government.)
White Nationalists? Really ? Must go along with that White Rage we keep hearing about
Anti vaxx Jewish brothers.
You just full of cliches and conspiracies aren’t you?
US Navy warship suffers Covid outbreak among 100% immunized crew.
The vax/jab is a scam. It doesn’t work. Take off your blinders and then take off those stupid masks.
This has all the markings of the false flag event. Be careful with this kind of “news”. I hope you don’t forget to do the follow up when it turns out to be a hoax perpetrated by ADL or other hate mongers.
The CDC has now admitted that PCR tests are worthless. Everything about the lockdowns and masks and distancing was based on case numbers from PCR tests.
It’s all a scam, people. Put your foot down and do not go along with any more of it.p
Dear foot down: The CDC has said that during omicron, PCR tests aren’t as valuable. They never said that they have always been useless. Why are they useful one day and not useful the next? Because in prior strains of the virus, PCR confirmed cases preceded hospitalizations by about 2 weeks, so hospitals could staff up and down accordingly. Now, with omicron and with the majority of Americans vaccinated, PCR tests aren’t so predictive of hospitalizations. That’s just the way science works. That doesn’t make it a scam. It doesn’t make masks and distancing worthless. In fact, they are as important now as ever.
I googled it. You should have, too.
Now they’ve cut the post-exposure quarantine period in half because they’re afraid of negative impacts on the economy. Huh. They weren’t worried about that when Trump was president. It’s all a scam. Total scam. They lie about the virus, they lie about the vaccines, they lie about transmission, they are trying to control you. Don’t let them.
Cases are up a whopping 1,765% in your beloved San Francisco, where 92% of people are vaccinated, jab passes are required to eat at restaurants and mask orders are enforced.
The government elites and the jab pushers know nothing. Do not give them your fealty.
THe CDC has said to avoid cruise ships regardless of vaccination status. Wait. What? I thought the vax protected you and others.
They do Anonymous, by about a factor of 15. But they don’t protect you from getting a bit ill or from spreading it to others. A small percentage of a large number can be a large number. But one thing they don’t protect against is stupid people.
