JTA — A white supremacist group from New Jersey posted more than a dozen anti-Semitic flyers on Staten Island.
The flyers, found over the weekend in the New York City borough, are emblazoned with a Jewish star and falsely claim that Antifa, the loose anti-fascist network, is a Jewish organization that is anti-white.
“The original Antifa was a Jewish anti-Nazi militia,” the flyers said, according to the New York Post. “There is a war against all non-Jewish European-American nationalists.”
The flyers also claim that “600 + Jewish Orgs Support BLM Communist Terrorists,” likely a reference to a statement in support of Black Lives Matter signed last year by hundreds of Jewish organizations.
#Antisemitic fliers found on Staten Island this weekend promote the hateful ideology of white supremacist group NJEHA. @ADL_NYNJ is in touch with @NYPDHateCrimes, which has launched an investigation.https://t.co/NGaLkzW7B5

They were posted by the New Jersey European Heritage Association, which the Anti-Defamation League describes as a white supremacist group that “espouses racism, anti-Semitism and intolerance.”
The group has previously posted flyers around New Jersey, including in areas with large Jewish populations.
Kevin Mahoney, a Staten Island resident, told the Post that he spotted and took down at least 10 flyers.
“I have a beef with Nazis,” he said.
