Campaign posters of New Zealand PM defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti

(JNS.org) Campaign posters for New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key, who has Jewish roots, were defaced with anti-Semitic graffiti. One of the defaced campaign posters featured a picture of John Key spray-painted to resemble an observant Jew with a black hat and peyot. Painted next to the picture were the words “Lying Jew ****sucker.” “The Jewish community in New Zealand, they are hard-working, decent people and they don’t deserve to be brought into some sort of personal campaign that’s directed at me,” said Key, who was born to an Austrian Jewish mother and has family members who died in the Holocaust.
