I suppose if the news saw when, then yeah, but not really.

Like you said, probably just some dumb kids.

Yes, it does.

B'nai Brith Canada, which has been tracking anti-Semitic incidents for 35 years, said 1,728 anti-Semitic incidents were reported across the country last year -- a 26 per cent increase from 2015 and the highest number the group has ever recorded.

"That means an average of four to five incidents of anti-Semitic harassment, vandalism or violence occurring every day in our country, a country where we pride ourselves as being one of the most tolerant in the world," said the group's CEO Michael Mostyn.

Absolutely not. It’s just kids childishly pissing around and it’s not vandalism. They could have very well drawn male or female sex organs, or written F-bomb slogans. It wasn’t drawn with hatred but was drawn to shock people.

Man, we used to do this for kicks as a kid when I was like 6 years old or around that age, not cus of anti seminism or what ever you call that word, I did not even know what that word meant when I was that age. We never even hated the jews at that age, we did not know what racism was either. We even did it to car's of people that I knew were Catholic. and back then when we did it, the car owners simply got their snow brush and wiped the snow off their windshield and drove away, but in 2018, someones gotta photograph it and make a big deal, wow it was probably some 6 year old kid doing it for kicks cus he learnt about it from his friends at school. give me a break. you people are too sensitive

They only really comment when it's one specific demographic now. Antisemitism just isn't as catchy or grabby nowadays as that other thing.

It begins as something "stupid" to you, but it is much more than just being "sensitive" to me. As mentioned in a previous post, there is a surge in anti-semitism and this is something that we track and follow. No, it isn't going to affect the majority on here, I get that. But it IS newsworthy as the increase in anti-semitism should be noted.

It's drawn on snow people... that's not even vandalism lol

I think pretty much every kid has done something like this and they might not even know what a swastika represents.

If they were serious they would have spray painted it at a synagogue..

That's political correctness for ya.
