GIVE us a break already
with these stories of swastikas and
I think the
general public has now got the message.
The ten-thousand dollar reward that I
offered for information leading to the
arrest and conviction of the culprits
behind the timely desecration of two
Jewish cemeteries in New Zealand has gone
unclaimed -- it seems that the community
knows how to protect its own.
It did not pass
unnoticed that the community did not
actually put up any reward of its own,
although it was reported in the NZ media
to be "considering" it.
'anti-Semitism' vanish after suspect
NEW YORK -- More than 20 white,
spray-painted swastikas were found early Monday
18, 2004] in the
southern sections of Brooklyn and Queens
York suburbs]. Two
synagogues, two Jewish community centers, a Jewish
funeral home, a rabbinical school, a medical
building named after a Jew and numerous parked cars
Investigators with the NYPD's Hate Crime Task
Force swarmed over the area before sun-up, dusting
for fingerprints, photographing and taking paint
samples, then trying to remove the swastikas as
quickly as possible so that the ultra-sensitive
minority would not have to view the hated symbol of
the Third Reich.
The Judeo-authorities say this crime spree was
particularly brazen because most of the synagogues
and community centers have security cameras that
are on 24 hours a day.
"It's all one and the
same pattern, it appears," a hate-police
spokesperson told the dozens of reporters who
had gathered outside one of the victimized
synagogues. After the morning service, curious
Jews milled around hoping to see what had

in the world right now, that it was going to hit us
and it did," moaned Lenore Greenberg, 74,
who learned of the incident from the rabbi during
"I'm angry, very upset, as are all of the
congregants here," she said, adding it was
particularly galling that the vandalism occurred on

Local politicians were also on hand, taking full
advantage of the free publicity.
Congressman Anthony Weiner (pictured)
told WCBS-TV's Magee Hickey that someone had
"carpet-bombed the community with hate." With a
post-nasal drip squeak he added, "We aren't going
to stand for it."
Meanwhile, Assemblyman Dov Hikind
offered a $5,000
reward for information leading to the arrest
of the "anti-Semites" responsible.
By mid-afternoon, the elite "Hate Crime" Task
Force had made their arrest. Olga
Abramovich, 49, of Brooklyn, was charged with
criminal mischief and "related crimes," police
said. The woman admitted targeting about 20 sites
because she was angry at her former husband, a Jew,
for dumping her and marrying a younger woman. An
empty spray-paint can was found in the trunk of her
Since the arrest, the media has dropped all
mention of "hate" and "anti-Semitism." The
candlelight vigils have been canceled. The ADL will
not be issuing a press release.

The woman, Olga Abramovich, 49, of
Brooklyn, was charged with criminal mischief and
related crimes, police said.
Police said Abramovich admitted targeting about
20 sites, including several
synagogues, because she was angry at her
former husband for marrying a younger woman. They
said she also marred two police cars because she
was upset about receiving a summons.
The vandalism was first
reported early Monday [October 18, 2004]
at a medical facility in Brooklyn, where white
spray-painted swastikas marked a door and a

found the same symbol on synagogues, Jewish
schools, cars and a funeral home in southern
sections of Brooklyn and Queens. One of the cars
belonged to Abramovich's former husband.

cooperative, police said

Island mall flea market, was found in the trunk of

clockwise at right angles, was the emblem of the
Nazi Party and the Third Reich.
