Anti-Israel graffiti found at SEPTA’s Spring Garden Station
Philadelphia, PA – Graffiti with anti-Israel messages, including one reading “Israelites are the new Nazis”, was found Tuesday morning at SEPTA’s Spring Garden Station of the Broad Street Line.
The graffiti, photographed by Facebook user Grant Zachary Briskin, was written in what appears to be black marker on the pillars near the tracks, and on a gated door to a SEPTA (The Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority) employee area:
One part of the graffiti included a number of hashtags: #BoycottIsrael, #KillJail, #FreeMumia (in reference to how Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has handled the case of Mumia Abu-Jamal), #AbolishPrisons, #PreservePhilly, and #StopBeingABigot.
Briskin told PhillyVoice he discovered the graffiti around 6:20 a.m. Tuesday, and he tweeted a picture at SEPTA’s Twitter accounts. The @SEPTA_SOCIAL account responded, asking for more information:
