Fliers hung in the Oakland, Calif., Montclair  neighborhood of Jewish city councilwoman Libby Schaaf show a swastika drawn on her forehead.

The fliers hung district represented by Schaaf read, “Stop Schaaf. Stop the DAC” (domain awareness center) — a reference to a city plan to build a combined surveillance center for police and firefighters.

Schaaf, who reportedly plans to run for mayor in November, told the Bay Area News Group that she was surprised to be targeted over the issue. She has been critical of building the center, though she has voted to proceed with the project along with a majority of council members.

“As a person of Jewish heritage I found this particularly hurtful. As an Oaklander I found it shameful,” said Schaaf.

Police are investigating the incident, but it is not known if it is being investigated as a hate crime.

Most of the posters have been torn down or the swastikas were covered with black marker.

Last year, similar posters with swastikas targeted a Latino councilwoman.

  1. I complain as much as anyone about goyim trashing us. Maybe that’s the wrong approach. Instead we need our own “representatives” who can casually reach out and touch people who attack and disrespect Jews in a impression-making way. Gentiles have used either crosses or swastikas and other symbols to warn and send messages to Jews for centuries deliberately to recall atrocities gentiles have used and threatened us with. If it works for them, use it on them.
