Jewish lawmaker was sent antisemitic letter referencing synagogue massacre
Manhattan, NY – A Jewish Queens city councilwoman was sent a hate-filled, antisemitic letter that makes a reference to the Pittsburgh synagogue massacre, she told The Post on Thursday.
Councilwoman Karen Koslowitz (D-Forest Hills) opened the typed, more-than-a-page-long letter at her district office last Thursday and was disturbed by the contents.
“It has very vulgar language. I was very offended by it and taken aback, especially now with everything that’s going on,” Koslowitz said Thursday.
The letter, filled with grammatical errors, was dated Nov. 12 and mailed to 250 Broadway in Manhattan, where the City Council has hearings and officers. It begins “Dear Karen.”
“You had been defending all stinky, filthy, dirty Jewish population in New York City as well as the stinks mof’s living in Israel, Russia, former soviet union countries, in western European and Latin American countries,” the letter states.
A handwritten sentence included at the end of the letter refers to October’s mass shooting inside a Pittsburgh synagogue.
“What do you think about those stinky Jews killed, 11 and 4 hurt in that synagogue,” the sentence reads. “What these motherfucker rats are doing in other states of the USA???”
Another portion of the letter states: “I do not know why AL QAEDA PATRIOTS; THE ISLAMIC STATE MILITANTS AND ISIS LEADERS had been unable to finish the work that was started in concentration camps in Poland and finished with these race of crooks, in israel, russia and most important here in the U.S.”
