PHOTO: Resident Says Anti-Semitic Neighbor Scrawled Swastika into His Lawn

swastika leisure vPHOTO: A Lakewood resident tells TLS he is constantly being verbally attacked by an anti-Semitic neighbor, but yesterday it went too far.

When exiting his home yesterday, the Leisure Village resident tells TLS he discovered a swastika scrawled into his front yard, and suspects the neighbor did it.

“I’m barraged with anti-Semitic, death threats to my dogs etc. whenever I step out of my door,” the resident told TLS. “He was particularly horrible today talking bout shoving Jews in the ovens, speaking lines from Mein Kampf and cursing me while I’m tending to my garden.”

The resident continues, “I was transplanting some pepper plants and stringing up some tall tomatoes when he comes out and starts mutterring, and cursing. I start singing to drown it out, but it gets ugly. “You stupid (moderated) Jews, you (moderated) (moderated) of the earth, they didnt make enough ovens to (moderated) burn all your (moderated) in.”

Other comments included “Heil Hitler and burn the Yidden,” and “your mother should have died in the ovens,” and more, says the resident.

The resident tells TLS he has contacted the Lakewood Police Department, as well as the Anti Defamation League regarding the incidents.

    • Have you heard the phrase that maybe ‘this too shall pass” We dealt with the (moderated) and such, we have some witnesses, for all that, we now have a recorder too after the Anti semitic and cursing of my dead relatives started after we witnessed the carving of the swastika, its become obvious that this person studies the writings of Adolf, and speaks some German and well Yiddish is old German, we do not know his last name, why would it surprise you that any hater would study the tongues of his victims?

  1. We moved here in March to relax after many medical issues, and thought we were safe in a nice community with security and likeminded folks. I can only hope this passes and we may go on with our lives.

  2. Right now this sounds like so much hearsay. I also am suspicious of an anti-Semite that uses the word “Yidden”. I’d also imagine that the LPD would send an investigator immediately. Funny as well that this person allowed this to go on for so long without calling the authorities as well as informing the Leisure Village administrators by Registered Mail.

  3. I must say that it wouldn’t shock me if this story was true and no one should ever have to live with that kind of menace but the story seems to be somewhat fabricated or maybe exaggerated. Sounds like an investigation is in order!! Posting someone’s name and address here without having any facts other than what one person has said to be the truth would be a great travesty in itself!

  4. Please call your association and lodge a complaint. I’m sure the Bylaws in Leisure Village have rules with regard to nuisance and so forth. Ask for an Alternative Dispute Resolution asking the Board to intervene on your behalf due to harassment and nuisance
    if that doesn’t work file for harassment in court and in this case sue him. he will learn to keep to himself very fast

  5. We are working on this, gathering proper evidence is crucial, and time consuming, one does not always carry the correct equipment when assaulted, now I hope we are it is not fun to live gathering evidence, but we will try our best, that is all we can do for now, the LV authorities have been alerted and are reluctant to respond…. time it all is a matter of time.

  6. To all those who are “suspicious” that a anti-Semite used the word Yidden, I am unsure in what century you live. Dude, this is the 21st Century and EVERY ONE know a slew of yiddish-isms and the like.

    Anyhow, I suggest a public protest and vigil in front of this “person’s” home. If that doesn’t work I suggest we set up a nice, Chol Hamoed event right there.

  7. Mr Blumberg Lots of folks here who will come to your assistance. Jews and Non-jews will come Lakewood loves people of all ethnics backgrounds. Just you let us know and the word will get out….

  8. Is it for me to understand the thumbs down??? the perp was caught, you act as if this is theatre, grow, listen , understand the plights of your neighbors, and help, do not belittle! should’ve, could’ve would’ve are worthless if you haven’t marched in the shoes of the victim…
