(WASHINGTON D.C., 9/7/2021) – The Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today condemned neo-Nazi graffiti outside a Jewish man’s home in New Mexico and expressed solidarity with the Jewish Community
On Saturday night, the man discovered a Nazi swastika had been spray-painted on a wall outside his Santa Fe apartment while he was out for dinner with his wife. The man reported the incident to Santa Fe police, who said they have no suspects as of yet. Police also said they cannot classify the incident as a hate crime until they talk to a suspect and are currently treating it as a vandalism.

“We condemn this appalling anti-Semitic incident and urge law enforcement authorities to respond appropriately,” said CAIR National Communications Director Ibrahim Hooper. “American Muslims stand in solidarity with the Jewish community and all Americans targeted by growing racist hate and bigotry.”
He said the American Muslim community and CAIR stand in solidarity with all those challenging anti-Black racism, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, white supremacy, and all other forms of bigotry.
