CAIR-Cincinnati Condemns Anti-Semitic Graffiti Painted on Bridge

(CINCINNATI, OH, 3/6/2020) – The Cincinnati chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-Cincinnati) today condemned the anti-Semitic, hate-filled graffiti painted on a railroad overpass in a Cincinnati area neighborhood and expressed solidarity with the Jewish community against all hatred and bigotry.

“We condemn in the strongest terms the message of hate directed at the Cincinnati area Jewish community,” said CAIR-Cincinnati Executive Director Karen Dabdoub. “Anti-Semitic, hateful speech such as that painted on a bridge have no place in our community or in any civilized society.”

She added that CAIR has reported an unprecedented spike in bigotry targeting American Muslims, immigrants and members of other minority groups since the election of Donald Trump as president.
