A billboard on Route 80 in Bergen County, New Jersey that stated, “Oh, don’t be naive. Hamas would chop your head off too,” was removed after authorities received more than 100 complaints against it.
JewBelong, an organization which “calls out Jew-hate,” purportedly erected the sign.
“This anti-Hamas billboard on Route 80 in Bogota borough resulted in more than 100 calls to police before it was taken down by organizers,” Shlomo Schorr, associate director of the New Jersey office of Agudath Israel of America, tweeted on X.
According to the Bogota police, however, there were no criminal offenses associated with the sign and they had been made aware of it, NJ Advance Media stated. “Our police department works closely with county, state and federal agencies to ensure the safety of our community,” the department stated on Facebook, noting it it was private property. “There have been no threats to our community and we are investigating the matter to ensure all community members remain safe.”
