A Jewish man found a swastika drawn on the gate to his home where he had put up decorations for Hanukkah.
David Cohen, 72 and a resident of North Fort Myers, Fla., told police that he found the swastika drawn onto his gate on Monday afternoon.
“I can’t even say how mad it makes me feel,” Cohen told news-press.com. “If it was a kid, I’d say they were very stupid. If it was an adult, they are very ignorant.”
The swastika was about four inches in length.
“I first saw it Monday when I came back from the North Fort Myers Community Center,” Cohen said.
Cohen reported the incident to the sheriff’s office and kept the fence open in order to avoid seeing the swastika and then painted over it.
He also placed a Menorah, dreidel and a Star of David near and around his lawn, which so far has been not vandalized.
