Anti-Semitic Slurs Painted on 30 Wisc. Homes; "Everyone in the Neighborhood Is Pretty Upset"

At least 30 homes in Madison, Wisconsin were vandalized early on February 14 -- some with anti-Semitic slurs and swastikas -- the Haaretz (Israeli) website reports today (February 16, 2015).

Residents awoke to derogatory words geared toward women and other minorities spray-painted on their homes, cars, garage doors, mailboxes, and driveways, according to the Coordination Forum for Countering Anti-Semitism.

One resident, Jim Stein, told Wisconsin TV station WISC-TV, "Everyone in the neighborhood is pretty upset."

"It was, of course, extremely disturbing to me," Stein -- who is president of the Jewish Federation of Madison -- told the station.
