Marchers protest burned cars in NYC Jewish enclave

Demonstrators protest torching of cars, anti-Semitic symbols left in NYC Jewish neighborhood By The Associated Press

NEW YORK (AP) ' About 100 people are marching through Brooklyn to protest against vandals who torched three cars and scrawled Nazi swastikas in a predominantly Jewish neighborhood.

Protesters say they are taking a stand against the unknown vandals who set the cars ablaze Friday night and early Saturday. The vandals spray-painted the letters "KKK" on a van, put swastikas on benches and left other anti-Semitic messages on a sidewalk in the Midwood neighborhood.

The marchers headed down Kings Highway on Sunday. They were led by New York state Sen. Eric Adams, state Assemblyman Dov Hikind, Rabbi Chaim Gruber, New York City Public Advocate Bill de Blasio, civil rights lawyer Norman Siegel and other community leaders.
