Antisemitic attack on Ohio couple being investigated as hate crime
A Jewish couple in Columbus, Ohio say that they received antisemitic abuse and threats, and had rocks thrown at their home earlier this month.
According to the local TV news, the incident is being investigated as a hate crime by Federal, State and County authorities.
Nick and Tiffany Kinney claim that on the night of 7th November, which was Election Day in the United States, a neighbour who allegedly knows that they are Jewish approached them and spat at them.
According to Mr Kinney, the neighbour allegedly told him that he was “tired of liberals” and that it “was no wonder Hitler burned your people.”
Mrs Kinney claims that the neighbour said: “I’ll put a bullet through your head like Hitler.”
The couple believe that the neighbour then threw the rocks that smashed their window and door.
